....as Shatta Wale beef comes into focus
MUTARE - Buffalo Souljah has gained himself a musical mileage after recent with some fans crowning him the King of Dancehall in Africa.
Buffalo Souljah, real name Thabani Ndhlovu, recently told the media that he was honoured by the honour which is also being claimed by Ghana-based Shatta Valle which has seen some lyrical confrontation between the two.
‘‘King of Dancehall in Africa has been my title from way back. I think you know it yourselves. I will not fold my hands watching someone taking it away from me. I am still the king,’’ said Buffalo Souljah.
The MTV B award winner and Rurare (featuring Winky D) hit-maker told a Ghananian radio station that he was not bothered by Shatta Valle’s own claims.
The feud has become the biggest talk in various radio and television reggae-dancehall shows across the continent with people giving different opinions. Among them is Mr Logic, one of the highly-rated reggae experts in Ghana and Africa.
Mr Logic told a radio station in Ghana that Buffalo Souljah deserves enough respect because he is a senior to most African artist in the reggae-dancehall field.
“Despite the fact that I am from Ghana, I would not like to take a side. I know Buffalo in person and Shatta Walle was my artist. Buffalo Souljah’s music is very good and when I was in South Africa, it was trending in there and in the whole of Southern Africa. You know South African music is very influencing.
“There are Jamaicans, Indian, Americans and many other tribes and races in South Africa making their music very influential across the globe. In my own opinion, Buffalo Souljah was the king of dancehall in Africa but as for now, I can’t give him the crown,” said Mr Logic.
