Ghanaian dancehall musician, Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jr. popularly known as Shatta Wale has said he is the new Fela Kuti and doesn't need any form of promotion from Nigerians to be successful.

Recall, the controversial singer had earlier said Nigerians ride on the back of Ghana to gain global prominence while claiming that Nigerians have no love and don't support other musicians from the other parts of the continent.

Fastforward to recently, the 37-year-old singer has now called himself Nigerian multi-instrumentalist, Fela Kuti, stating that Nigerians should either accept it or forget it.

“Nigerian fans stay on the internet and talk bullsh*t. It’s your turn today, but tomorrow is another man’s turn. If you people didn’t see Fela Kuti for a long time, he is back. This is him. Accept it or forget it.

“I don’t need Nigerian promotion for anything. No Nigerian artiste can say I visited them. How many of your rappers can beat Sarkodie?” he added.
