Shattastimony 2018: why shatta Wale should win the Artiste of the Year at this year’s VGMAs.

From the streets of Nima to the comfort of the luxurious Range Rover and recently Rolls Royce, Ghanaian music icon, Shatta Wale, has a story to tell. But then again, everyone knows the story of the street hassler who made his way to the top by going against the tide. He is now more than a musician, more than an icon, more than an influencer, more than a crowd puller, more than an inspiration, he is now …… A living testimony. And this is what we call ‘Shattastimony’. What are awards for if not to reward and inspire others? Firstly, if it is to reward, then may i ask who filled more seats and produced more hits last year than the boy dem used to call Bandana? Remember the multitudes and the fans dressed in SM Clothing? Remember the S Concert at the stadium and the voices that yelled ‘Shatta’ through out the night till dawn? Secondly, if awards are to inspire others, then just count the number of young males, street kids and Zongo boys who think, without proper education and a silver spoon, they too can make it to the top of life’s ladder. They believe they too will have a testimony someday and this is what we call Shattastimony. So anytime you feel down and neglected by greatness, just remember that in order to ‘enter the net’, you must first believe and love yourself, so ‘chop kiss’ and remember that you are a ‘commando’ ready for the ‘taking over’ for your financial ‘freedom’. Don’t focus on the setbacks; just ‘forget it’, and don’t mind the haters because ‘dem confused’. Desist from timidity and don’t look down on yourself or else it will consume you! ‘Ayoo!’
