Ghana’s DanceHall Superstar, Charles Nii Armah Mensah, aka Shatta Wale, has called on Members of the Shatta Movement to be inspired by his story and never give up on their dreams and goals.
According to him, SHATTA means “SERIOUS”, and for that matter every member of the Movement should take life more serious and work very hard to realize their dreams.
Shatta Wale, who is warming up for the launch of his album “AFTER THE STORM” in April this year, is looking forward to having it free for his fans because, as he stated, “sometimes it is not always about the money, it is about giving back to the society”.
According to Modern Ghana, he made these statements in an exclusive interview on Showbiz971 on Suncity Radio 97.1MHz when host, Melvina Frimpong Manso interviewed him.
According to him, Ghanaians have showed him so much love that he needs to make them feel loved back.
I have gotten so much love in Ghana that I have never gotten before. It hasn’t been an easy road for me though, and this album will tell the youth in Ghana that when you want to do anything, do it in the right direction and also positively.”
According to him, the reason why he settled on “AFTER THE STORM’ is because he has been through a lot in his music career but has never given up.
From Bandana to Shatta Wale now has been a brand that many doubted. Those days, people did not really appreciate and understand my type of music. I was told Ghana was not ready for dancehall but I told them I could do it.
It took me 10 years to come out with the brand Shatta Wale and I had a lot of struggles here and there, all because I wanted to put our industry in order,” he said.
I want the youth to know that, after the storm, there is light at the end of the tunnel,” he concluded.
Meanwhile, the ‘kakai’ hit singer has been disqualified from being nominated for the 2016 Ghana Music Awards because of some intense beef between him and the awards’ board since 2015.
