A former member of the Shatta Movement’s Militant Group, Addi Self, recently revealed the precise circumstances that led to the dissolution of the SM Militant.
In an interview with Felli and KMJ on Accra-based Joy Prime, Addi disclosed that he had expected the militants to defend him when Shatta Wale and his colleague Kweku Smoke got into a brawl over a supposedly stolen track.
The militants’ refusal to comply with Shatta Wale’s request led to their termination and the eventual dissolution of the militant group, according to Addi.
“Kweku Smoke was one of the artists who visited the camp once. He had no problems with Shatta. Although we were present when he arrived at the camp, I had never met or seen Kweku Smoke before.
According to Addi Self, Kweku Smoke made an appearance on Live Video and asserted that Shatta stole his song. Addi Self claimed he asked his former boss, Shatta, what the true problem was after seeing the video on social media. Shatta, however, lost his temper at his colleagues’ lack of support.
“So I saw the live video and went to him and Shatta Wale was like I had to go live and tell the boy my mind. I was like, 1 Don you know, I don’t know this boy; when he came here, nobody introduced him to be part of us, so I don’t want to be involved in that. My boss was vexed from there. So, that was how it all started. When Kweku Smoke came, he was expecting us to insult him back,” he added.
A few days following the dramatic event, Addi Self claims that Shatta Wale started to ignore the militants and eventually publicly dismissed them. He claimed the breakup had an impact on his music career since it caused him to miss out on some friends and collaborations.
He added that he has no ill will toward Shatta Wale and is just focused on advancing his musical career despite these events.
He also said he is not ready to do anything with the Kakai hitmaker.
