I love Shatta Wale - Black Stars coach Otto Addo

Ghana head coach Otto Addo has revealed his deep love for Ghanaian music, insisting he often listens to Shatta Wale’s songs.

I love Shatta Wale - Black Stars coach Otto Addo

The former Borussia Dortmund assistant coach opened up on his favourite musicians during an interview with 3Sports.

Aside from Shatta Wale, Otto Addo also named rapper Sarkodie, Kwesi Arthur, Black Sherif, Mr Eazi and Buju BNXN as some musicians he loves to listen to.

“I love to listen to music, for sure. [I love] so many [Ghanaian musicians], and I’ve said it before,” the Black Stars boss told 3Sports.

“Even though I don’t speak Ga, I love to hear Ga. So, I love Shatta Wale, especially when he talks and speaks in Ga. Surely, Kwesi Arthur, Sarkodie – great lyrics, Black Sherif, Mr Eazi – I love him, and also from Nigeria, BNXN Buju.”

Meanwhile, in the wake of criticism of Mohammed Kudus, ostensibly for holding on to the ball for too long, Otto Addo has said his players have the licence to be creative with the ball.

The 49-year-old was, however, quick to add that players who want to take risks must first understand their positioning and the overall structure of the team before making such moves.

Addo made a slow start following his re-appointment as head coach of Ghana, having failed to win any of his first two matches against Nigeria and Uganda in March.

However, he has now led the Black Stars to back-to-back wins in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers. Ghana defeated Mali 1-2 in Bamako last Thursday before following it up with another hard-fought 4-3 home victory against the Central African Republic (CAR) on Monday.
