Hip-life artiste, Tic Tac claims a curse invoked on him by Dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale helped in him winning GHS300,000 against Melcom in a court decision last week.
The Ghanaian act born Nana Kwaku Duah was awarded the amount as compensation against the Supermarket chain for the illegal use of his image.
“If you say God should punish me, I’m a child of God and, yes, he has punished me with GHS300k overnight. He said that and I think a day after, I got the judgement.” said Duah during an interview on Accra 100.5 FM’s Entertainment Capital with DJ Premier.
He also spoke about his status compared to that of Wale.
“It is because of something, if not Shatta cannot be compared to me because he is not anywhere near my level. I created history back in the day in Nigeria.
You pride yourself that you have been successful but if you couldn’t even continue what I did beyond the shores of Ghana, to even Nigeria, I am the one who should be angry at you for not being able to raise Ghana music. You have tried and been unsuccessful and you should have come to seek counsel and ask what we did for Nigerians to kowtow to us, because we went to conquer them back in their yard.“
