Ghanaian celebrity beefs of 2020
Coming to the end of 2019, a lot of entertainment enthusiasts prayed that beef and celebrity fights would be left behind while transitioning into the new year, but whoever they prayed to never honoured their wish. It continued this year.
Celebrities, just like our siblings, fight with each other for superiority, clout and what have you. And just like every year, there have been a couple of these fights in 2020.
From Afia Schwarzenegger’s never-ending feud with Mzbel, Sarkodie’s fall out with Stonebwoy, Sista Afia’s lyrical battle with Eno Barony to East Legon Landlady Tracey Boakye and Mzbel’s struggle for Papa No, here’s how 2020 looked like in terms of celebrity feuds:
Sarkodie vs. Shatta Wale
A beef that nearly ended in 2019 was carried over to 2020 when Sarkodie, in March this year, responded to Shatta Wale’s constant social media attacks and diss song “Little Tip”. The song sparked heated argument and also attracted a response from Shatta Wale who said the song is needless because Ghana was fighting COVID-19 at the time. They patched their broken friendship when Sarkodie featured him on his “Black Love” virtual concert.
Sarkodie vs. Stonebwoy
They used to be tight buddies and frequent collaborators but their long friendship came crashing down because of “Black Love” virtual concert. It all started during the ore-recording of the concert where Stonebwoy’s session was delayed by Sarkodie’s manager, Angel Town. A brawl broke between Stonebwoy and Angel, and the latter was assaulted in the process. Sarkodie filed a police report and that was how their years of friendship ended this year.
Stonebwoy vs. Samini
Samini felt betrayed by his protégé for smoking the peace pipe with his arch-rival Shatta Wale. Right after Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale patched their differences and announced that they will battle on Asaase Radio’s “Sound Clash”, Samini flipped, expressing his disappointment in his ‘son’. Stonebwoy fired back with a cryptic message on Instagram, saying: “when the exposee exposes the exposed. god no go shame us.”
Afia Schwarzenegger vs. Mzbel
The friends-turned-enemies rekindled their never-ending beef when Afia Schwarzenegger granted an interview explaining why she ended her friendship with Mzbel. This led to a whole new beef, with each other digging deep into dead issues that left fans stunned. Afia claimed Mzbel slept with her boyfriend and that is why they fell apart.
Mzbel vs. Tracey Boakye
Mzbel and Tracey Boakye put up quite a show when the two NDC staunch supporters clashed on social media over someone’s husband called ‘Papa No’. “If someone’s husband sleeps with you and gives you property, you are supposed to suush (keep quiet) and continue lying to the youth that it is hard work,” Mzbel said in an Instagram post when Tracey Boakye revealed in a live video that her properties were sponsored by ‘Papa No’. That is how it started!
