The micro-blogging site, Twitter has deleted a controversial post by Ghanian dancehall musician, Shatta Wale while having a face-off with Grammy award-winning Nigerian artiste, Burnaboy.
Wale whose real name is Charles Mensah, best known as Shattawale, and Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, aka Burna Boy, had fought dirty on social media over the weekend.
In the process, the Ghanian artiste seemingly admitted ‘engaging in r*pe’, accusing Burna Boy of being jealous because of this. The Ghanaian singer had tweeted “Because he is a r*pist, He is jealous I did the same to his girl. Cuz that’s his job, R*ping jealousy”.
These comments were hugely condemned by social media users with many threatening to report the tweet. However, since the tweet clearly violates the rules of Twitter, it has been taken down.
The feud had started after Burnaboy reacted to Shatta’s outcry about the Nigerian music industry.
Taking to his Instagram story, he wrote, “Pushing this Agenda of separation between our beautiful African Nations is a grave disservice to the generations coming after us. It goes against everything I stand for as a Man and as an unapologetic pan Africanist.
‘‘Therefore, if Shatta or anyone has a personal problem with me, I’m still open to fighting one on one and squashing it after. The same way I have always been, nobody will ruin the unity we continuously try to build for a stronger and better Africa”.
This prompted Shatta Wale to call for a one-on-one freestyle challenge in a stadium in Accra, Ghana. However, Burna Boy insisted on having a psychical fight like “real men do.”
