UK-based Ghanaian pastor, Dr. Sonnie Badu, has praised the collaboration between Beyonce and Shatta Wale.
Badu said the video of the song titled ‘Already’ is “beautiful” and should be appreciated.
The songwriter said this while responding to social media controversies surrounding Beyonce and Shatta Wale’s music as others labeled it as Illuminati.
In an Instagram live chat with Celebrities Buzz TV, he noted that instead of criticising everything celebrities do, the energy should be directed towards appreciating their hard work and supporting them.
Also, he stressed that Shatta Wale‘s collaboration was a win for Africa and therefore needs to be appreciated.
He said: “This world no matter how hard you work, you will be criticized. Let’s just put it this way, for a second, let’s just appreciate their hard work… Let’s focus on Beyonce’s hard work which is that one of the young men who had to teach her how to dance.
“That means she had to come or learn and fly the person to America to learn the dance for about 2 months just for a 3 minutes video. Look at how energetic the whole video was. Look at how beautiful it was.
“Okay if you have a problem and you say it’s Illuminati then you invest in something so we also don’t have to look at Beyonce, we have to watch you. Create something that we don’t have to look at her but we watch you. But in this current season, it is trending, trending means everyone is looking at it and talking about it. I’ve seen it, it’s incredible, it’s beautiful.
“Even if it’s Illuminati, it’s between her and God. You’re not the one that’s going to judge… Whatever she’s doing, she’ll be judged so you’re not the one to judge, the Bible says “Judge not so that you may not be judged. And if you have a problem, create your own so we can watch it.
“But for now, let’s not do anything to disrespect what they’ve done.”
