Ghana’s self-acclaimed dancehall king, Shatta Wale, who reportedly had some altercations with sultry actress Yvonne Nelson over the weekend at the 4Syte TV Music Video Awards, has been explaining what really led to the near chaotic scene between them.
It was earlier reported that, one of Shatta Wale’s bodyguards mistakenly pushed Ms Nelson whilst she was granting an interview to a media house during the event and she almost fell to the ground if not for Bismark The Joke’s help. The incident is said to have infuriated Yvonne so much that she exchanged some harsh words with Shatta’s team.
Here’s what he recently said on Accra-based Happy FM’s Showbiz Xtra:
“Yvonne Nelson is rather trying to say something that I don’t know anything about. That I pushed her when we were going to the 4syte Music Video Awards because I saw my bodyguards push her and I saw her and didn’t say anything.
We were entering the conference center, and I had like four security people around me and I got some interviews on the red carpet. So basically when we were entering, I didn’t know who was standing where and I was just entering inside, so I didn’t see if they pushed anybody. The fans were all around me and so if someone had pushed you it wouldn’t be my security because they know every celebrity in Ghana.
Later on, I saw her with Bismark the Joke, and I jokingly told him; ‘Don’t talk to my wife’ but in front of the people, she was like ‘I’m disappointed in you. I was like Yvonne ‘Why? if something like this has indeed happened, just pull me aside and whisper into my ears but why say it in front of all these people, she replied ‘No, your boys pushed me, and you didn’t try, I’m disappointed in you. I asked which of my boys because I came with a few people and my wife.
When she was talking there were a whole lot of people around us. It was at the car park at the conference center. It was so embarrassing; I just told her she should know how to talk because we are all in the same arts industry. So if you want to address an issue, just pull me back and whisper into my ear like ‘Oh Wale, I think Bla blah… but don’t start shouting around saying my boys… my boys…
And this is when I got out to change my attire for my performance, my fans were around me and following me and so if you shout my boys… my boys, I just came with four security guards. But she was she still saying No… no… to my explanations.”
