Ghanaian dancehall musician, Shatta Wale, has disclosed the reason behind his now famous music video, ‘Gringo.’
According to him, the core message behind the video is his life as an artiste in Ghana’s entertainment industry.
He added that the video, which has created a lot of buzz since its release, is an introduction to his upcoming album, ‘The Reign.’
Shatta Wale went on to say that “Gringo” is a Mexican term, which means ‘foreigner’.
His choice, he went on, is because he sees himself as a foreigner, ever since he re-branded himself as Shatta Wale.
“It’s a Mexican term meaning foreigner. People saw Shatta Wale as a foreigner. This is a stranger who came to conquer the music industry.
I wanted to break barriers for everyone to know who Shatta Wale is”, he revealed.
The dancehall artiste further noted that there are already requests for collaborations, and as such he is optimistic ‘The Reign’ will be a great album.
