Ghana Rapper Pope Skinny found himself under fire after he called his fans “stupid and foolish” for not promoting his music. In a video shared on Instagram, Pope Skinny insulted his social media followers for, apparently, not sharing his music widely.
Considering his affiliation to Ghana’s dancehall king, Shatta Wale, one would think that Pope Skinny would be an influential rapper with a successful music career. But that is hardly the case. Pope Skinny is, apparently, a big joke in the music industry with barely enough fans to keep his music afloat.
In the video, Pope Skinny blamed his social media followers for not sharing his music widely as Shatta Wale’s fans do. He went on to insult them calling them names and threatening to unfollow all of them.
This, obviously, did not sit well with Pope Skinny’s fans and he may have just killed his musical career entirely. But this could also be a publicity stunt to gain fame by creating a “scandal”
