Shatta Wale has shown his outmost appreciation to American musicians, Beyoncé and JAY-Z despite losing out on the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards.
Shatta grabbed nomination for his feature with Beyoncé on a song titled Already (which also features Jamaican-American electronic dance music DJ trio, Major Lazer) in the category of “Best Art Direction”.
However, Saweetie emerged as the winner with her video for “Best Friend” featuring Doja Cat at the event held on September 12, 2021, at the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn, New York City.
Reacting to the disappointment, Shatta Wale took to Twitter to express his appreciation to Beyoncé and her husband, saying he is ‘grateful’ even if he didn’t win.
He continued that he is grateful for at least seeing his name on an American award show which many artistes dream to have their names on.
“God bless @Beyonce and Jay z moreeeee for me…wow!! What an opportunity. If I don’t even win, am forever grateful at least to see my name on an award show in America many have been craving to be on,” he stated in a tweet
