Ebony Reign’s manager Bullet of Ruff and Smooth fame has rejected suggestions that Dancehall King Shatta Wale had more hit songs than his client and deserves the 2017 Artist of the Year in the upcoming Ghana Music Awards.
Last week, Shatta revealed in an interview that Ebony must pray that his troubles with award organisers Charter House will not be settled and prevent him from partaking in the awards else, she will be unable to pick the enviable artist of the year.

However, Bullets believes Shatta’s efforts in the year under review would’ve carried enough weight if it was between 2013 and 2016.
“If it were the year 2013, 2014, 2015 or 2016, I would’ve said Shatta [Wale] is right but Shatta knows that in 2017 Ebony did a lot more than he did,” Bullet said.
“Shatta never had like five hits songs [as compared to Ebony].
“When you say major hits, Shatta had ‘Ayoo’ and ‘Taking Over’ and later in the year he had ‘Freedom’. The track ‘Forgetti’ is a normal hit and he knows it. ‘Forgetti’ is not bigger that ‘Taking Over’ and he knows it. It’s ‘Ayoo’, Taking Over and Freedom, making it three hits in 2017.”
He added: “Ebony had ‘Poison’, ‘Sponsor’, ‘Date your Father, ‘Hustle’ and ‘Maame Hw3’ in 2017. I mean let’s be real, Shatta, if it was like last year and last two years he would be right but now, I don’t think so.”
Shatta Wale has been banned from the awards since 2015 after he launched a scathing attack on the organisers for an alleged foul play.
