Initially Shatta Wale claimed he had pulled out of the contest after claiming that the organizers were cheating. However that seemed to be just a joke.
During the event, Stonebwoy called Samini a sellout while performing on stage at the ongoing Asaase Sound Clash. That was after Shatta Wale faked call and sent a painful message to him.
Right on stage, Stonebwoy said
“If like say eno be sellout when some father sellout ah, anka dem go friend this one (Shatta Wale)”.
