Dancehall Does Not Pay And Since I’m Business-minded, I Do Other Genres Like Highlife & Asoko Songs To Fetch Me More Money-Shatta Wale



Ghanaian Dancehall artiste Shatta Wale has said that the songs he produces are to promote Ghanaian culture.

In case you are wondering why Shatta Wale claims he’s the dancehall king but continuously keep doing songs like Kpuu Kpaa, and the rest, Shatta Wale has explained why. He disclosed that dancehall music does not pay and since he is business-minded, he does any genre to fetch him money.

“People know me as dancehall artiste and they feel always I should do dancehall but that’s why I tell people this is business for me so whatever is commercial for me to make money I just do it,” he said

Speaking to Paul Adom Otcherey on the Good evening Ghana on Metro TV, he said his music cuts across all age groups and that he is always proud to hear kids sing his songs.

“Reggae dancehall music doesn’t sell much like you’re doing what the people like here. So I like to portray something that will appeal to from my father’s age to youths and to kids cos I have children that sing my song.

“Because I’m concentrating so much on Ghanaians, I’m not just taking it as if I’m doing music but I’m trying to promote what our culture knows,”

Shatta Wale’s Reign-Wonderboy concert is happening this Saturday at the Fantasy Dome!
