Nigerian Music Video Director Accuses Ghanaian Artist Of Failing To Settle Outstanding Payments


Nigerian filmmaker and video director, Sir Choppenson has accused Ghanaian dancehall king Shatta Wale of failing to settle outstanding payments for several video projects he has done for him.

According to Sir Choppenson, he was commissioned to shoot multiple music videos for Shatta Wale, including the recent release ‘Killa Ji Mi’, filmed in Tamale.

Speaking via his social media handle, Sir Choppenson claimed that despite completing over 13 videos for Shatta Wale, including the one that caught international attention and led to a collaboration with Beyoncé, he has yet to receive full payment.

He stated that the agreed amount for recent shoots was less than $5,000, but Shatta Wale had promised $15,000, which remains unpaid.

“I have been begging for my money for over a month now,” Sir Choppenson lamented. “Every time I call, there are excuses or anger from Shatta Wale.”

The video director expressed his disappointment and frustration over the situation, noting that he has been requesting payment for over a month.

He described his experience of constant excuses from Shatta Wale whenever he called to inquire about the payment.

The video director noted that he has made significant contributions to Shatta Wale’s career, adding that despite assurances from Shatta Wale’s management nothing has been done.

The self-acclaimed richest musician in Ghana has not responded to the allegations made by the music video director publicly.
