Dancehall artiste, Samini claims Shatta Wale prevented him and Stonebwoy from performing at his ‘Reign’ album launch.
According to Samini, they had gone to the Fantasy Dome, where the event was held to support Shatta Wale by staging a surprise act on the night but were told the latter had refused the gesture.

But Stonebwoy in response insisted that Shatta Wale was aware they wanted to perform but refused to give them the green light.
Surprise Support is Way Better Than. A Fake Twit. But For INSECURITY Problems 😂🤣🤣!!
You Refused To Take advantage of The Opportunity.Would You Have Asked The Crowed if you Weren’t AWARE. Why Lie? Feel Free 😂

The Fantasy Dome was literally on fire, Saturday, as Shatta Wale launched his first album under the Zylofon Music label. Titled, ‘Reign’, the album has seventeen tracks.
First copy of it was auctioned for GHC150,000. Shatta Wale on the night decided to sell the first copy at GHC100,000 but Mr and Mrs Sledge who bought it said he deserves more than that; hence they decided to pay GHC150,000.
