“The thoughtful lyrics of this Ghanaian musician made him so popular. Shatta Wale also can be called one the most productive Dancehall artist as he drops hit after hit, the brightest are “Ayo”, “Taking Over”, and “Low Tempo,” it added.
There have been lots of debate in Ghana, especially between fans of Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy over who is the best Dancehall artiste in Ghana.
