Self-styled King of Dancehall in Ghana, Charles Nii Armah Mensah, known by his stage name Shatta Wale, has rained praises on colleague dancehall artiste, Samini.
According to Shatta Wale who named Samini as one of his favorite Ghanaian artistes, Ghana’s music industry has been greatly impacted by the efforts of the dancehall artiste.
Speaking in an interview with Starr FM’s Bola Ray, Shatta Wale said Samini is an icon to Ghana and deserves to always have the respect of the industry.
He also said Samini should be celebrated for his work, describing him as a ‘Legend.’
“Samini will tell you that he knows much about what I’m doing, we are doing business so our fans should really understand one thing that anytime they see Samini and I beefing and stuff like that is something to just make the entertainment industry boom,” the Shatta Movement leader added.
He noted that these so-called beefs are popular everywhere including Jamaica, and only seem serious in the media but when the artistes meet behind the scenes, they engage in civil conversations.
