The music video for the Already song by Beyoncé and Shatta Wale comes over one year after it was released by the American singer.
As reported by YEN.com.gh at the time, Beyoncé curated two albums featuring international artistes for the Lion King movie which are called Spirit and The Gift.
It is on The Gift album, released on Friday, July 19, 2019, which had Beyoncé featuring Shatta Wale on the Already song.
After the video was released, Shatta Wale showed appreciation for Beyoncé for featuring him in her album.
The Taking Over hitmaker took to his social media handles to post a photo of himself and the American singer and expressed his thanks to her for giving him a chance to showcase his talent.
Meanwhile, Afia Schwarzenegger has endorsed President Nana Akufo-Addo's second term bid.
According to Schwar, Akufo-Addo's Free SHS policy and other achievements were her main reasons for choosing the current president over John Mahama.
In a new video, Schwar indicated she would have wished to vote for Mahama, who she calls father, but Akufo-Addo's achievements were too glaring to ignore.
