Dancehall musician, Shatta Wale, has shared some words of motivation with students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
This was during a performance to mark a Vodafone X concert.
The event coincided with the 55th SRC week celebration of the university.
He urged the youth to be smart enough to identify and make use of opportunities.
This, he added, would ensure that they created a better life for themselves and their generation.
The dancehall superstar further cautioned them to make hay whilst the sun shone.
He stated that it was essential for the students to follow their dreams.
Shatta Wale added the students could end up with the Unemployed Graduates Association if they didn’t make the right decisions.
He revealed that he was unable to enjoy tertiary education because he failed his examinations.
That notwithstanding he followed his passion, he added.
The end result, he stated, is that he is reaping the fruits of his labour.
Shatta Wale was joined on stage by his Shatta Movement(SM) militant group, made of Captan, Addi Self, and Joint 77.
The show was part of a series of concerts marking Vodafone X’s third anniversary.
Charles Nii Armah Mensa Jnr, known on stage as Shatta Wale, is one of Ghana's most popular dancehall artists.
The 33-year-old musician shot up to fame in 2004 with his hit single "Bandana from Ghana".
It was a tremendous hit on the Ghanaian airwaves.
Charles changed his stage name from "Bandana" to "Shatta Wale" after years of inactivity as a musician.
His come-back to the music industry saw him release a track "Dancehall King" in 2013.
This caught the attention of thousands of music fans.
