“We Know Your Story, You Stole AC From Zylofon Office For Your Girlfriend” : Wisa Greid Goes Hard At Arnold



Wisa Greid, Ghanaian singer is trying to resurrect the dead scuffle that ensued between Shtata Wale and Arnold Asamoah Baidoo on UTV last weekend.

On the show, Shatta Wale vented his spleen on Arnold for describing him as “confused and inconsistent”. The SM boss also described Arnold’s clothes as cheap by stating that the shoe he wore for the show was priced at GH¢2.50P.

Moments thereafter on the show, the two feuding parties smoked the peace pipe and apologized to each other for their misdemeanour.

Well, we thought all was done and good only for Wisa Greid to wake up this morning and share a cringy post on Facebook alleging that Arnold deserves all the disrespect because he stole an Air Conditioner from the Zylofon Media office for his girlfriend.

What is the motivation behind Wisa Greid’s post?
Well, according to him “that boy” (Arnold) does not have the moral right to disrespect “our international artiste” because his story stinks.

According to the “Ekikime” hitmaker, Arnold’s case, where he stole the AC allegedly for his girlfriend, is pending at the police thus he should be thinking about resolving such an image-denting issue than going about disrespecting Shatta Wale, an international artiste. Lol!

So that boy with 2.50ghc shoe dey on tv dey talk say Wanna International artist be confused and inconsistent.. He forget say we know en story ehn.. the AC wey he steal from Zylofon to go give en girlfriend wey dem catch am nu, the case still dey the police station oo .. yooo loll.

However, Wisa Greid’s post actually incurred the wrath of Ghanaians who could not believe how a kettle could call a pot black.

“Was it not the same Wisa Greid who brought out his small pen!s live on stage? Ahhh, man think about yourself,” that was one of the comments a fan made under his post.

Others rain insults and cast aspersions at Wisa Greid for trying to ride on Arnold-Shatta beef to buy some social media attention for himself.
