Awards winning Ghanaian born Reggae/Dancehall artiste Charles Nii Armah Mensah, known as Shattawale has urged colleague artistes to be grateful to the media for their immense contribution towards the revolution of the music industry.
The controversial artiste who’s yet to launch his much anticipated album dub the “Reign Album” on the 13th October, 2018 has realized that the media deserves some accolades for its magnificence role in the show business.
Speaking in an interview with host Andy Dosty on the capital’s number 1 entertainment morning show, Daybreakhitz on Hitz 103.9fm, Shattawale stated that they need to payback to the media and appreciate them.
“Certain behaviour from some artiste is making me not feel like a musician. We should be able to pay back to the media people. We need to appreciate them.”
Meanwhile, Shattawale stated that, the media needs to understand that, music is a business and as an artiste, being controversial is the way of making wealth from it.
“With the media, they are failing to understand that as an artiste, there are ways and means to make money from the game.”
The “Ayoo” hitmaker stated that for his career to reach the world, the media need to push and support him as it has been done to Sarkodie and Shattawale.
“The same way the media pushed Sarkodie and Samini to the world the same way they should push me also to the world, as Jamaicans did to Bob Marley, you guys should also do it for me”
Dancehall King, Shattawale promised to gift out three brand new vehicles to media personalities, if the media supports and promotes his ‘Reign Album’.
