Nigerian video director Michael popularly known as Choppenson has accused Ghanaian reggae-dancehall artist Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jr widely known as Shatta Wale for non-payment of his music projects has stated that super stars in Nigeria like Davido, Burna Boy, Asaka and Olamide will not treat people like how Shatta Wale has treated him.

According to him, the Nigerian super stars respect and appreciate people in the industry.

In a video, Michael stated that he wishes to work with them.

“One thing I know is that my super-stars back home won’t do this. Davido, Burna Boy, Asaka, Olamide they won’t do this because they appreciate people in the industry. They know how to treat you, I know someday I will work with them by God’s grace, they will treat you very well.” He stated.

“Now listen, let me take you back to 2018 when I was schooling in Ghana, Shatta Wale did the same thing to me. He called and said he wanted me to do a video for him after shooting ‘taking over’ and the rest. That track is called thunder fire. I said okay, I did my quotation and called him and said bro how far, everything icluding my cre, camera, fees will cost GHC30,OOO. He said okay this is small money, he will give me 50k, he will buy me a car, bro,I was hapyy oo.” The video director said.

Narating how he used his school fees and rent to do a video for Shatta Wale but refused to pay him, Choppenson indicated “By the grace of God, my parents had set me school fees from Nigeria including me rent, I gathered everything and rented equipment, put my crews and everything together, I shot this video for Shatta Wale, I gave him the video and I asked him how far? He said don’t worry I should go, he will give me my money. I went, after three days I called Shatta Wale, he didn’t pick my calls, the next day I went to his house, they refused me from entering Shatta Wale’s house.”

“Shatta Wale messed me up, I stood outside for about 4 hours and unfortunately this was during my exams.”

He appealed to the self-acclaimed dancehall king to pay him his money.
