Shatta Wale in his latest interview on Happy FM’s Ayekoo After Drive revealed why he visited Mallams when he had his first hit ‘Moko Hoo’.
In a tell-all interview with DJ Advicer, Shatta Wale confessed;
“I visited many mallams but they could not do what I needed so why would I waste my time to keep visiting them. I have gone to mallams many times to research my things and it’s because we are in Africa and that was when I had a hit.
“I really believe in God but the thing is, people, meet you and tell you not to think it’s only God that did it for you. People doubt God and Joint 77 (member of his Militants) have been there in the beginning. I sometimes suggest a place to go and he will refuse because he is afraid. The things I reveal are so scary and he sometimes becomes scared.
“If a mallam could influence my fame like the other acts would have done that also. Every mallam that I visited will come and tell you that Shatta visited but I could not deliver the things he requested from me. I’m that strong spiritually and if you are not able to do what I want, I stop visiting you.
“With what I see now, I don’t believe any artist has gone for a song from a mallam. It’s just that sometimes people use wrong ways to achieve things.’
