Wizkid Is No Superstar, Claims Shatta Wale In New Diss Track

Shatta Wale goes in on Wizkid, Patoranking and Timaya in two new diss tracks, "Disaster" and "Dancehall Landlord."

We're not totally sure what started this but Ghanaian heavyweight Shatta Wale has been going hard at Wizkid over the last few days.

In his new track, "Disaster," the Ghanaian dancehall star makes his feelings very clear by repeatedly singing that he doesn't feel or like Wizkid and doesn't see him as a superstar.


A look at Shatta Wale's timeline seems to show that he was annoyed by fans comparing him and Wizkid on social media.

In another new diss track, "Dancehall Landlord," the Ghanaian star takes aim at Nigerian artists Patoranking and Timaya, who he calls "the most wackest Dancehall artiste ever in Africa."

For their part, neither Wizkid, Patoranking or Timaya have responded yet.
