“I have always said it and I will say it, I think we have people to always celebrate. Samini has been a legend in our industry and I believe he has helped Ghana music grow. He is one of my favorite artists when it comes to the genre of my career. I believe he is an icon to Ghana because most youth that supports Shatta Wale also love Samini so everybody should know that he [is]a big star and he needs to be celebrated,”
