Multiple award winning Dancehall star Shatta Wale, has explained his ‘Sergeant Lee’ lyrics.
Shatta’s lyrics loosely translated says “Sergeant Lee, you are laid back enjoying tea and claim you are in a comfortable lead…”
Many have suggested Shatta was referring to Stonebwoy in the smash hit record but Wale thinks otherwise.
“I wasn’t referring to Stonebwoy.’ Shatta told GHOne ‘Its creativity. We had this polls thing from MTV Base online and fans were to vote on who was the Dancehall don in Africa. Stonebwoy was promoting it for like three days while I wasn’t aware and when the fans prompted me about it, he was in a lead but the polls were still open. So I tweeted it once and ended up winning. So, I just thought I should just feature that in the song. People take things personal. What I said in the song, we had an election where NDC came to say we are in a comfortable lead when they were not winning. Its entertainment.”
Stonebwoy in an earlier interview reacted to Shatta Wale’s Sergeant Lee lyrics in the smash hit single ‘Taking Over’.
The multiple hit factory in his latest radio interview reacted;
“Sincerely speaking, I chanced up on the Sergeant Lee thing twice. He told JOY FM. This is the third time I’m hearing it at a very reputable place and I think I have to start wanting to find out its meaning and what its driving at.
“Listening to the song, sincerely, I do not hear any shots thrown at me or anybody. Some of the other songs might have thrown shots but thats even allowed once it doesn’t go beyobd certain limits. When it gets personal I will go personal too.
“When you don’t know me personal and you try to make it seem you do then we will have to let you expatiate. Its lyrical. The sergeant Lee lyric, if it means something positive then ‘I take am’ but if it doesn’t then I would like to know what they are talking about. I have done a lot and so may be that’s how the person want to praise me. I have also seen tweets where people call others Corporal Nii.”
