Dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale has disclosed that his biggest punishment in school was when he was asked to weed a big portion of land.

Speaking on Joy FM’s Personality Profile on Thursday, the Kakai hit maker said when he realised he could not, he pleaded but was told it was a must.

He however did not state why he was punished.

“[My biggest punishment was] when they asked me to weed a whole land. He threw a stone actually from one point to the other… I couldn’t weed all so I had to go and beg him and he was like it is a decision by the school for me to do it. You know I have a very soft palm,” he said.

Shatta said he developed interest in music while in school but his father insisted he could do music after school. He disclosed he was called ‘Doggy’ but decided to change to ‘Bandana’ when he secured a deal to record songs.

According to him, he chose to be called ‘Doggy’ because of his love for dancehall artiste, Yoggy Doggy who was one of the hit makers at the time.

“I was recording with my friends when the owner of the studio said I have a good voice that he feels he can help me. When he said that, I told myself then I need to change my name from Doggy which I was using in school,” he said.

 Adding, “When I was growing up, the best dancehall artiste in Ghana was Yoggy Doggy. I was always around him and wanted to be like him. So I think when I went to Secondary School that was the only name I could choose to make my name in school. So when I got the deal, I thought of changing my name. And you know I like this bandana thing. I was putting them on my waist and forehead so something told me to use it. It sounds nice, catchy…”

The artiste bounced back to music after a long absence and decided to rebrand as ‘Shatta Wale’ after consulting God, he has said. Shatta has since dominated the Ghanaian music scene with his works and controversies.
