Charles Nii Armah Mensah injected some vigor and attention into the Ghanaian music business after rebranding from Bandana to Shatta Wale and returning from his absence.
He began by beefing up his colleagues with some media men for various award schemes.
In a new interview, Michael Owusu Addo, better known as Sarkodie, praised the self-proclaimed dancehall king for bringing energy and attention to the music industry.
Sarkodie explains why he doesn’t brag about his charitable contributions.
We’re talking on the phone, and the next thing I know, ‘mad’ Shatta Wale is criticizing me.
Sarkodie made the remark during an interview when asked to select between Shatta Wale and Kuami Eugene, and in the process of choosing Shatta Wale over Kuami Eugene, he made the remark.
Shatta Wale energized and drew attention to our profession – Sarkodie
He calls you today and then goes on the radio to say, F Sark.
You don’t always understand, but he brought energy and attention to the sector.”
