Ghanaian musician, Joshua Kojo Ampah, member of the music duo, “Keche” has described controversial dancehall artist, Shatta Wale as one of the most humble artists he has ever met.
According to him, although Shatta is aggressive and loud he is one of the few people you can trust to see the good in people, adding that Shatta Wale can be classified as one real person who says things as they are and Ghanaians hate people who are real and truthful.
Speaking in an interview with Onua Fm’s Osei Felicia on Adwuma Adwuma he said that the ‘My level’ crooner knows how to correct you when you are wrong which sometimes includes him being hard but that is just his way of doing things.
According to him, he resonates with Shatta Wale because he believes in telling people when they are wrong without sugarcoating words because sometimes you just have to say it as it is to make people conscious of their actions.
Shatta Wale has been touted as the Ghanaian musician with the most controversies in the industry. Strangely enough, the more controversies Shatta Wale creates, the higher his fame and followership soars.
He has managed to ride on controversy and good music to be one of the forces to reckon with in the Ghanaian music industry.
However, Shatta Wale’s songs were in perfect sync with his personality. He lived his music, identified with the people on the streets and became a household name. He whipped up public interest in dancehall and got the likes of Samini and Iwan to join in his lyrical wars.
