A social media handle affiliated to Stonebwoy, has taken a subtle swipe at his compatriot–Shatta Wale.
The account with the user name Stonebwoynews in a post on Instagram, emphasized there is no way a big artiste should beg for endorsements and other deals on social media.
Though, they did not mention Shatta’s name point blankly, everything shows that he was the subject in the post.
On October 15, 2018, Shatta Wale took to Twitter to call on Nigeria’s Multinational Telecommunication Network, Glo, to change their mind and sign him.
“Glo said I wasn’t worth the money; I asked them to pay me $120,00 but I hope they get a change of mind to sign me otherwise nothing like Glo SIM card in any Shatta Movement phones,” he wrote.
Following this Stonebwoynews posted: “After winning the 2015 Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards’ Best International Act: Africa award, Stonebwoy was approached by GLO but he rejected the $80,000 offer.
“If you add value to your life, great deals will chase you. You won’t use Twitter to beg Glo for offers like ‘Alumi’ did yesterday,
A Big artiste like ‘Alumi’ shouldn’t be begging for endorsement deals on social media. Stop comparing a ‘jama’ singer to a musician.
