The name Shatta Wale does not need any introduction on the Ghanaian and African music landscape.
The Ghanaian Dancehall and Afrobeats artist holds the unofficial record as the most decorated African Dancehall musician of all time.
His pedigree and music personality have been etched in the music folklore and we don’t need to open that chapter to blab anything.
Well as we all know, Shatta Wale, born Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jnr had a humble beginning and taking to Facebook to share an inspiring story of how his career began, the ‘Already’ hit maker said people doubted his abilities in the beginning.
