Controversial Reggae/dancehall artiste, Charles Nii Armah Mensah known in the industry as Shatta Wale has asserted that popular entertainment pundit, Arnold Asamoah Baidoo is not a journalist.

This follows a statement made by Mr Baidoo concerning an address which Shatta Wale made after his trip to the United States America (USA) which he claimed the country had no particular genre that could represent the industry on the international market.


In his address, Shatta Wale stated that such was a set back for the country and had contributed to musicians failure in gaining international recognition.

But Mr Baidoo who was unpleased by the address noted that there were inconsistency in Shatta Wale’s kind of music and such he was a confused musician to have claimed the set back of the country’s music industry was failure to have a particular genre which would be used for them to gain international recognition.

Mr Baidoo insisted that the challenges faced by musicians in the industry were piracy, funding, distribution, publication among others and not necessarily genre issue as being claimed by Shatta Wale.

Expressing his sentiments on United Showbiz in Accra on Saturday, the “1 Don” hitmaker indicated that Mr Baidoo was no body in the industry to claim he was confused and inconsistent.

He said the regular pundit on the United Showbiz was a coward who had been blogging negatively about him and indulging in discussions that would not help the industry to develop.

Shatta Wale described Mr Baidoo as cheap, small boy and poor who wears inferior things.

He told Mr Baidoo to thank God for having an argument with him on national television, stressing that the mere talk with him could make him popular and demanded for respect.

Shatta Wale then asserted that Mr Baidoo should bow in shame and not call himself as a journalist.

“You are no body, you have to respect me, how did you become a journalist? I am not a small boy the only journalists in the country are workers of Graphic and Times. You are coward don’t ever tell me that I am confused. I am giving you an opportunity to reframe your statements by using the right words,” Shatta Wale added.

Mr Baidoo who did not allow himself to be intimidated told him he was also not a small boy, thus being workers of the industry they had to accord eachother with respect and not one way respect.
