UK-based Ghanaian Afrobeat musician, Fuse ODG has also shared his view on the trending Shatta Wale, Beyonce collaboration which has become the most topical news in Ghana and making the SM boss the focus of attention once again.
According to the man who popularized Azonto years ago, Beyoncé stands to benefit the most for featuring Shatta Wale since the feature provides an opportunity for the American singer to make a mark in Africa, especially Ghana.
He says all the African artists featured on the project have a huge fan base and that’s were Beyonce’s endorsement will come from, meaning the R&b great will have the lion’s share of the fraction here which is good for both parties.
Fuse ODG stated in an interview;
“I think Beyoncé benefits the most from obviously Africa certifying her because there is nobody cooler than Africans right now. So Beyoncé actually being a part of this soundtrack to me, it benefits her a lot greater. She’s getting certification from real African people.
Definitely we should be helping Beyoncé, and of course, helping each other in terms of the platforms that she has, but in terms of legitimacy for African music…Remember Lion King is set in Africa.
So really, it should have really been hosted by an African artiste, but I think having Beyoncé on board, of course, she has a crazy reach and all the African artistes involved should give her the certification she needs.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see Beyoncé in Ghana enjoying herself because Ghana is the hottest thing right now, and of course in Ghana Shatta Wale is our legend and to me, it makes sense and I hundred percent support it.”
