Controversial Ghanaian dancehall/reggae artiste, Charles Nii Armah Mensah, popularly known as Shatta Wale, has proposed Saturday classes for musicians in the country.
According to him, most musicians in Ghana do not know their jobs.
He made this remark during an interview with Rev. Erskine on the Y-Leaderboard Series segment of the Myd-Morning Radio Show.
“I wish every Saturday, we’ll even do artiste classes in Ghana because most of the artistes don’t even know their jobs. You see an artiste come out today and tomorrow you’ll hear he has left his manager. We’ve all faced that thing before but it’s because we don’t have any orientation to this business.
For instance, when you were coming to YFM, they gave you a small room with a microphone to do a little practice and show what you can do, then they assess you but we don’t have it so we tend to watch TV and YouTube, and want to be stars,” he said.
He also urged them to be real and be themselves.
“I can choose to wear a suit and look like a Mexican drug cartel or I can choose to dress gangster and that is me.
“I always want to be me because anybody who loves me for me will approach me and that is how come I meet big men in Ghana. The only thing they tell me is that I’m real and that is why they like me. People want people who are real like that,” the Shatta Movement Boss advised.
