Speaking to YEN.com.gh about whether Shatta Wale deserves the multiple honours, Ghanaian blogger Ameyaw Debrah urged people to respect it
''His fans have hailed him, and others say he doesn't deserve it. I sort of expected he'd win those awards when I saw the promo around him, coming to the UK and the organisers taking him around and highlighting him as the headlining artiste.
''He's done well, but under the year under review, as the Ghana went, one would have expected that Black Sherif would have won many awards as well. But it doesn't mean he does not deserve it. They have their metrics, and if [Shatta Wale] came up tops, either voting by public or whatever voting means, people should respect it,'' Debrah told YEN.com.gh.
