Controversial Ghanaian dancehall musician, Charles Nii Armah Mensah, aka Shatta Wale, has over the years made media headlines for the wrong reasons.
The musician is noted to be one of ‘loudest’ Ghanaian artiste, apart from his controversial nature, and also his public smoking attitude.
Shatta Wale, who began the year 2018 with controversies seem to be ending the year with the same tag.

As if that was not enough, the Shatta Movement boss together with his ‘baby mama’, Michy also took over social media with their relationship break up brouhaha after losing the 2018 top VGMA award to the late, Ebony.
Although many fans of the artiste are yet to see an end to their relationship matters, the dancehall artiste got himself caught up in another media controversy for allegedly sleeping with another woman.
