Many have described award-winning disc jockey DJ Slim as a hater of dancehall artist Shatta Wale due to his constant criticism during his days on radio.

DJ Slim, who was previously with Angel Broadcasting Corporation’s Radio One in Kumasi, often criticized dancehall artist Shatta Wale, which didn’t sit well with his fans.

However, it seems the tables have turned as DJ Slim is now showering praises on Shatta Wale.

Many will recall that Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy were banned from the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards in 2019 after their scuffle on stage.

Fast-forwarding to 2022, their ban was lifted, and both artists had the opportunity to rejoin the award scheme.

Stonebwoy, in a Facebook post, expressed his interest to participate once again and was welcomed back.

At the 24th VGMA, Stonebwoy won two awards, including Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the Year and Best Afropop Song of the Year with ‘Therapy.’

On the other hand, Shatta Wale, together with his then-manager Nana Asiamah Hanson, known as BullGod, declared in a Facebook post that he decided not to participate in the award scheme.

Shatta Wale vowed never to partake in VGMA and stuck to his decision despite calls from his numerous fans.

In a video cited by on Facebook, DJ Slim stated that the Accra International Conference Center during the VGMA night would have had a different atmosphere if Shatta Wale had shown up.

He continued by saying that he really missed Shatta Wale that May 6th night and wished he had been part of the award scheme.

DJ Slim confessed that Shatta Wale is, in fact, a strong pillar in the Ghana music industry, and he knows that many people missed him as he did during the night.

“I think Shatta should rescind his decision and join VGMA because we all miss him. In fact, I was thinking about how the atmosphere would have changed if Shatta showed up. Honestly, I’m saying that Shatta Wale is a strong pillar in Ghana’s music industry,” he said.
