Ghanaian Dancehall musician Charles Nii Armah Mensah known well as Shatta Wale has called on event organizers to decentralize events in the country.
On Wednesday 2nd June 2021, the self-acclaimed dancehall king addressed the entertainment industry on matters that need to be solved in the industry.
The “Mellisa” crooner speaking, stated that on his vacation to Miami in the United States, he had the opportunity to be in meetings and eye-opening conferences related to the music industry and he sees no reasons to keep what he learned to himself alone, therefore he communicated it to the public in his address on his social media platforms.
According to Shatta Wale in his address, event organizers must desist from hosting major musical shows in Greater Accra only and begin to host events in other regions because it will help promote up and coming artistes in different parts of the country and will as well enthuse the government, stakeholders, and investors to establish more event centers in other minor cities.
“I think it is about time that we decentralize events in the country. It must not continue to happen that all major music shows happen in Accra, we must be able to hold big and popular events that happen annually in different parts of the country. This will help promote the new artistes coming from those minority regions. It is also a move that gives reasons for the government and investors to open and establish more event centers across the country” He addressed.
Shatta Wale did not just go to Miami for vacation but also for business purposes. He shot three (3) music videos and recorded five (5) songs for his “Gift Of God” (GOG) album. He featured Naira Marley from Nigeria, Pop Caan from Jamaica, and other artiste of global reputes.
Moreover, he was able to record a song with multiple Grammy award-winning artiste whose name, he put on hold till he releases the song.
