Shatta Wale’s Manager Reacts To Nigerian Videographer’s Allegation Over Unpaid Debt


Sammy Flex, the manager of Ghanaian dancehall artist Shatta Wale has reacted to Nigerian videographer Sire Choppenson’s allegations that he is being owed money for shooting videos for Shatta Wale.

In a trending social media video, Sammy Flex refuted Sire Choppenson’s allegations and accused him of being greedy and spreading lies.

According to him, Sire Choppenson approached him to be Shatta Wale’s videographer and was subsequently added to the artist’s team.

He narrated that issues allegedly began when Sire Choppenson started demanding money during their trip to Tamale for Shatta Wale’s show.

The manager also revealed that Sire Choppenson attempted to extort more money from him even after being paid for a video shoot upon their return to Accra.

He said: “I gave him money to acquire equipment for the ‘Killa Ji Mi’ video shoot, which he did. After the shoot, he attempted to blackmail me for equipment funds that had already been paid to him.”

Sammy Flex further claimed that the videographer ceased communication with him and clandestinely approached Shatta Wale for additional payment.

“He stopped responding to me. He even threatened to withhold Shatta Wale’s videos unless we paid him more money for the equipment. I urged another team member to contact him, but he ignored calls and messages.

“Later, I discovered he had directly approached Shatta Wale. Shatta Wale called me and informed me of Choppenson’s grievances.”

He added that Sire Choppenson still holds some of Shatta Wale’s videos and attempted to deceive him when he approached him for their return.
