When it comes to controversial and influential personalities in the Ghanaian media space, there are two people who will always be among the top 5, dance-hall icon Shata Wale, and ace broadcaster Abeiku Santana.
These two personalities have been in the industry for over two(2) decades, but continue to remain relevant, and influential in their various fields for all these years.
Aside their intelligence, creativity, and the fact that they are incredibly good at what they do, these two have one common trick under their sleeves, controversy.
While controversies have led to the downfall of many in the entertainment industry, it has proved to be a propelling force that has kept the careers of these men afloat. They have a mastery, marketing strategy sort of, that they employ to turn negativities into positives.
Yesterday’s edition of United Showbiz, has been the talk of town since the programme was aired, thanks to Shatta Wale and Abeiku Santana.
The UTV entertainment show hosted by actress Nana Ama Mcbrown was power-packed, as the panel was made up of controversial personalities, Bulldog, Arnold Asamoah Baidoo, Shatta Wale, and Abeiku Santana. All tough and known to speak their minds without fear or favour.
This wasn’t just an interview or panel discussion, it was more of education on copyright violations, the history and success story of Shatta Wale, a little jab to Sarkodie, and a whole lot more.
There were moments where tensions or emotions flared up, especially between Shatta Wale and Abeiku Santana, as each of them tried to prove their intelligence and how well informed they are. To call it heated arguments, would be an understatement.
You could see anger and hot tempers at work as the discussions went on.
In summary, it was an amazing show. Grab a chair, relax, and enjoy the programme below.
