Ghanaian dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale is optimistic that his songs will stand the test of time.


“My songs will last for many years because I am the only dancehall artiste who mastered his own beat and produced his own music. Moreover I am doing well in Ghana and internationally,” he said on the Delay’s Show.

The Dancehall King singer stated that his songs are not only popular in Ghana but everywhere.

“I do good music though hiplife is covering a lot and it’s a privilege for every artiste to hear his songs being played everywhere.”

Some people have argued that Shatta Wale will fade out soon because he doesn’t produce good records.

“I am not somebody who believes in music that somebody does for a few months and he gets a hit. Hit making is not difficult, find out. You sustain your career and make money from it after 20 years that is an artiste… Not people who get hits for 6 months, like Shatta. His music, mark it on the wall, cannot last the test of time,” Ghanaian music producer and Chief Executive Officer of Slip Music, Mark Okraku-Mantey said during hiplife artiste Edem’s “Books n Ryhmes” album launch.
