Entertainment is now the only thing keeping a lot of people from giving up in life. Ignore all the troublesome artistes we have in Ghana and concentrate on their unique abilities and creativity as a whole. In one breath, these performers are seen as demi-gods whilst in another perspective, they are tagged as recalcitrant entertainers. To some parents, most artistes are even bad influences on their wards! Is that always the case?
But, with all these stuff, one surest scenario is that most artistes have really thrilled and motivated their varied fan bases in so many different ways than they ever influenced them negatively.
Charles Nii Armah Mensah aka Shatta Wale is one hell of a gem when it comes to entertaining his audience. In my candid opinion, I have always tipped him to be the best candidate to man the Musicians’ Association in Ghana. After Bice Osei Kuffour aka Obour served his 2 tenures, the position has been vacant with Uncle Bessa as the acting President or so.
The way Shatta Wale metamorphosed from Bandana to SM is just the magic most musicians in Ghana need to carry their crafts to a whole new era! Shatta Wale may have slowed slowed down because of the incessant criticisms from a few entertainment pundits but he sure knows how to stay relevant – either negatively or positively.
On a more serious note, Shatta Wale is a national asset and must be protected and highly valued every single day!
