Ghanaian dancehall artiste Shatta Wale has revealed that the Directors of the movie: Beast of No Nation paid him $15,000 because his songs were sung by most of the boys during the making of the movie.
Shatta Wale made this revelation in the wake of Strika’s ordeal that the directors and management of the movie have neglected him.
However, the ”Amount” hitmaker in an interview on Zylofon FM´s Showbiz Agenda said:
“They (directors) proposed an amount of between $200 and $500 for each of us. But I declined because I felt the amount they were paying did not measure up to our status. I felt they were taking us for granted, so I did not accept the amount they proposed”.

”From a reliable source my other colleagues ended up taking a mere $500 and I believe that was disrespectful. Hence, after a period they (directors) called me and handed me an amount of $15,000. And this is how much I believe, we deserved and should have bargained for”, he told the host of the show Arnold Elavanyo Mensah.
Airnewsonline.com recently reported how Striker, born Emmanuel Nii Adom Quaye, one of the child actors in the movie now begs on the streets of Accra to survive.
Striker also revealed that his relationship with the now popular Hollywood star Abraham Attah has changed. According to him, Abraham Attah talks to him rudely with no respect.
He explained that the last time he saw Abraham Atta was on TV and he has not heard from him personally in a long time.
