We were admitted in the year 2000 at Winneba, a secondary school now Winneba High School. We were placed in one of the best houses in the school due to how good we looked and how neatly dressed we were during admission time. We all had love for music, but Shatta’s love for music was way ahead of ours. He was always creating new great songs for Entertainment every Saturday. No one misses entertainment on Saturdays when Shatta is on the bill. The girls were all over him, and if you were a friend, you automatically had a girl.
