First of all, let’s assume without admitting that Shatta Wale is a local champion as claimed by some people but wait; what is a local champion doing on one of the biggest international albums? Wonders? Let’t get into it.
Charles Nii Armah Mensah, popularly known as shatta wale in the music scene is undoubtedly one of the biggest musicians in Ghana currently. His rise to fame from the “unknown” Bandana to the Champion Shatta wale has amazed many people.
The artiste built a solid controversial brand which at large, offends industry players and award organizers who in turn punish him with suppression and total sabotage (which they will deny) contributing to him falling short of some Major international recognitions.
A development which resulted in the consistent association of his brand with the infamous “local Champion” tag but the stubbornness and sense of resilience of the artiste did not allow him to yield to the negative narratives.
Today, the supposed local Champion is on one of the biggest international albums and the same people who referred to him as a local champion have abandoned their initial position and joined many across the world to celebrate the feat he has chalked.
His success story amidst seemingly unbreakable obstacles must be enough motivation to many upcoming and struggling artiste in the country. Believe it or not, Shatta Wale is a pacesetter who deserve to be given all the due respect.
