Entertainment critic, Arnold Asamoah-Baidoo has earned the respect of many on social media for the manner he conducted himself when bullied and riled up by dancehall musician Shatta Wale yesterday on United Showbiz on UTV.
On the show, Shatta Wale insulted the United Showbiz’s panelist for tagging him “one of the most inconsistent and confused artists” in Ghana.
The “Kakai” singer’s abusive conduct on the show was widely condemned on social media, with many slamming show hostess Nana Ama McBrown for failing to call Shatta to order when he was attacking Arnold.
But famous Ghanaian music producer, Edward Nana Poku Osei, popularly known as the Da’ Hammer, has said Ghanaians should not attack Shatta Wale for disrespecting Arnold because it was the latter who first disrespected the artist.
According to him, in a Facebook post on Sunday, Arnold Asamoah-Baidoo was totally wrong and disrespectful for calling Shatta Wale “confused”.
“Confused is disrespectful no matter how u spin it, and being a journalist certainly gives u no right to call someone confused.
If his methods confuse u let it be known cos that would mean it’s relative to u, nothing wrong if his ways confuse u… just don’t try to generalize it as a tag. It wouldn’t be the first time something has eluded another individual in this life. That’s actually why there’s a saying that ‘ppl fear what they don’t understand;” he wrote.
“Do u knw how many ppl have been called confused and crazy in history, just cos they were misunderstood, only for them to change the narrative that eventually went on to influence society for the better?
Arnold u shld knw better. A few tantrums and politically incorrect outbursts from star boy and so what!” he added.
