I rejected Coca Cola’s $4,200 Offer for Coke Studio Africa – Shatta Wale

Self acclaimed dancehall King, shatta Wale has revealed that, Coca Cola Offered to pay him an amount of $4,200 to join the Coke Studio Initiative but rejected the offer because he wanted $30,000 . The chop kiss  hitmaker later revealed that he agreed with them on $15,000.

““All this coke thing, they approached me even last year that they wanted me on their platform and I was offered $4,200 and I was like damn, me, Shatta Wale $4,2000? Then I requested for $30,000 or else I’m not moving, which we later settled on $15,000. Even the $15,000 kraa, they said Coca-Cola South Africa will pay $5000 which Coca-Cola Kenya will pay $5,000 and Coca Cola Ghana will pay $5000”.

Shattawale was later paired with Nigeria’s Yemi Alade after terms of the deal were ironed out but it seems the dancehall king has a problem with Coke’s pairing.

“I respect Yemi Alade too much but it’s not that i don’t want to do that thing (record) with her. I’m not into Yemi Alade’s kind of music because we are both doing different style of music and I wouldn’t be comfortable doing any song with her. My team are still having a meeting with coke to see if there can be a change of things.”

Meanwhile, host of YFM’s Urban Africana Official KWAME represented YFM in Nairobi this weekend to experience the Coke Studio, interact with Trey Songz, Yemi Alade and other artists from across the continent as they launched season 4 of the show before it begins in Ghana next month.

Coke Studio Africa is a non-competitive show which seeks to bring together, and showcase the diversity of African musical talent. It also gives upcoming artistes the opportunity to work with some of the best local and international music and production talent. It brings together artistes from different genres, eras and regions to create a modern and authentic African sound through musical fusion.
