Charles Nii Armah Mensah, aka Shatta Wale, has accused the CEO of Burniton Music Group, Stonebwoy, of song theft days after their Asaase SoundClash face-off.
According to Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy’s new song Blaze Dem isn’t his but rather a polished version of Capleton’s Blaze Up Di Fire.
In a series of Snapchat story updates, Shatta Wale called out Stonebwoy, asserting that the BHIM President is not current. He argued that “he is doing old-time music,” when dancehall has shifted from where Stonebwoy is.
Stressing on his claims, the self-acclaimed King of African Dancehall taunted the Putuu hitmaker imploring him to consult budding Reggae/ Dancehall act J. Derobie to teach him the “current style.”
In light of his allegations, we at thehubgh.com took the time to confirm his claims by listening to Capleton’s song Blaze Up Di Fire song.
Clifton George Bailey III, better known by the stage name Capleton, is a Jamaican reggae and dancehall artist. He is also referred to as King Shango, King David, The Fireman, and The Prophet.
His record label is called David House Productions. He is known for his Rastafari views expressed in his songs.
Upon listening to the song, it’s clear Shatta Wale’s assertions are attention-based, and the song is different from that of Stone’s considering the beat, the rhythm, the lyrical content, and the story behind the freestyle.
Stonebwoy’s version is a diss song to Samini and Shatta Wale as he partly acknowledges his fans who’ve been loyal to him.
Check out Stonebwoy’s version.
Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy, in the past years, have had their differences and have barred teeth at each other.
The most heated moment of their feud was when the two clashed on stage during the 2019 VGMA awards when Wale and his team rushed onto the podium during Stone’s acceptance speech for been adjudged the Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the Year.
Due to Shatta Wale’s sudden movement to the stage, Stonebwoy, out of fear, quickly pulled out a gun while his then manager Black Cedi exchanged blows with some members of Wale’s team.
Days later, the two were banned from the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards and stripped of all the awards they won at the 20th edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA).
