Shatta Wale, a dancehall artist, has stated that if he organizes his show, he is capable of filling the largest event grounds 02 Arena.
The 02 Arena is one of the largest event venues in the United Kingdom. Artists such as Burna Boy and Wizkid have performed there on multiple occasions, filling the arena.
Some people believe that Shatta Wale will not be able to fill the arena in the same way that his fellow musicians have. In an interview with Dennis Tawaiah, Shatta Wale debunked claims that he could not fill the 02 Arena.
During the interview on Personality Profile on Joy M, the SM boss stated that no other Ghanaian artist can sell out the 02 Arena’s 20,000 space except him.
“Which Ghanaian artist on record as we speak has even sold 5,000 capacity venue in the UK? he quizzed the artist.
However, Shatta Wale stated that he believes he can sell out the 02 Arena 20,000 space. The host however chipped in saying a person can only achieve that aim when the publicity is high and not when they do a “one-man show”.
“It is teamwork…It is a company that is working so if Dennis, Alodia, and all those people cannot get themselves attached to those companies to work then these are the words that will come out of his mouth because me, Shatta Wale I believe if I get a Live Nation behind me I can sell O2 [hands down].”
He noted that such words bring down the Ghanaian music industry.
The Dancehall Artiste stressed that Black Sherif could even fill up O2 Arena.
“If you like let’s mark it. Let Empire say they will put up a show for Black Sherif in O2 Arena right now, the boy is going to fill 20,000 or even 30,000.”
