Hours after news broke that award-winning Dancehall act Shatta Wale and sassy actress Yvonne Nelson had a heated exchange at the Conference Center on Sunday morning.
Shatta Wale in a phone interview with DJ Iyce of Happy FM’s Showbiz Xtra explained what happened between the Dancehall Commando and the Yaa Asantewaa of Ghana’s movie industry.
Reacting to reports that were making rounds Shatta told the show hosted by Dr. Cann.
“Yvonne Nelson is rather trying to say something that I don’t know anything about. That I pushed her when we were going to the 4syte Music Video Awards because I saw my bodyguards push her and I saw her and didn’t say anything.
“We were entering the conference center, and I had like four security people around me and I got some interviews on the red carpet. So basically when we were entering, I didn’t know who was standing where and I was just entering inside, so I didn’t see if they pushed anybody. The fans were all around me and so if someone had pushed you it wouldn’t be my security because they know every celebrity in Ghana.
“Later on, I saw her with Bismark the Joke, and I jokingly told him; ‘Don’t talk to my wife’ but in front of the people, she was like ‘I’m disappointed in you. I was like Yvonne ‘Why? if something like this has indeed happened, just pull me aside and whisper into my ears but why say it in front of all these people, she replied ‘No, your boys pushed me, and you didn’t try, I’m disappointed in you. I asked which of my boys because I came with a few people and my wife.
“When she was talking there were a whole lot of people around us. It was at the car park at the conference center. It was so embarrassing; I just told her she should know how to talk because we are all in the same arts industry. So if you want to address an issue, just pull me back and whisper into my ear like ‘Oh Wale, I think Bla blah… but don’t start shouting around saying my boys… my boys…
“And this is when I got out to change my attire for my performance, my fans were around me and following me and so if you shout my boys… my boys, I just came with four security guards. But she was she still saying No… no… to my explanations.”
