Shatta Wale vs Stonebwoy ‘Asaase Sound Clash’ to be bigger than Bounty Killer vs Beenie Man Verzuz — Walshy Fire (Major Lazer)
Walshy Fire of Major Lazer group says he is very optimistic that “Asaase Sound Clash” featuring Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale will pull traction more than Bounty Killer and Beenie Man did with “Verzuz”.
The highly elated Musician/Producer says its an occasion for Ghana and Africa to prove to the world that they got the numbers.
“I am glad this is happening. For a long time Africa has been underrated in terms of numbers when it comes to music streaming and concerts. This will be a fine occasion for the world outside Africa to know the level of command these guys (Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy, as well as other artistes have). I’m not gonna miss it. I will be tuned in and watch it.” — Walshy Fire
On His Relationship with Stonebwoy & Shatta Wale:
“Stonebwoy is like my brother. We communicate very often. The last time we spoke was about two days ago. I’m yet to meet with Shatta Wale. He was on the ‘Already’ song we worked on with Beyoncé. I can’t wait to meet him.” (Walshy Fire)
He was put on the spotlight by Seani B to pick who he thinks will win the “Asaase Sound Clash” but he frankly said he won’t answer it and would rather leave it to the fans to decide.

Seani B is an international jock who plays on BBC Radio 1Xtra and also runs a syndicated Reggae/Dancehall show on Asaase Radio 99.5fm in Ghana every Friday night between 20:00hrs GMT – 23:000hrs GMT. He is listed as a co-host for the power-packed sound clash between Shatta Wale & Stonebwoy — 2 of Ghana’s heavyweight and former rival Dancehall Acts. Both acts command arguably the biggest music fan base in Ghana. Seani B and Veteran Ghanaian Reggae/Dancehall Singjay, Root Eye, will be hosting the event this Saturday, September 12, 2020, as detailed on the flyer. A car is at stake for win in a poll related to the event.
According to Walshy Fire who visited Ghana last year (2019) during the “Year Of Return” says “Major Lazer is rounding up a documentary on our visit to Ghana. Ghana is is an amazing place and people who hasn’t visited Ghana yet.”
