Multiple award-winning Ghanaian reggae and dancehall artist, Charles Nii Armah Mensah Junior, known in showbiz circles as Shatta Wale, has hinted on plans to school colleagues finding it difficult to get a hit song, in a workshop soon.
He made this revelation known in a recent post on social media sighted by ghanamotion.com
The head honcho of the Shatta Movement Family, noted that there is a need for musicians to learn the business side of music which he has mastered and is filling his bank accounts.
He stated emphatically that, just music didn’t get him to where he is rather humblenes, respect and great communication skills worked the magic.
“READING IN LIFE DOESN’T MEAN BOOKS ALONE BUT LIFE ITSELF HAS TO BE READ ..MUSIC WAS ONE OF MY ELECTIVES BUT I TOLD MYSELF I WANTED TO BE A MUSICIAN WHO PEOPLE WILL LOOK UP TO AS A #FREEDOMFIGHTER
YOU CAN ALSO CHOOSE YOUR PATH .
BUT HOW TO MAKE IT LOOK BIZNESS IS WHAT I AM TELLING YOU RIGHT NOW !
YES ! LOVE SONG ARE DA BEST ,BUT WE CAN’T SAY THAT WE DON’T NEED MOTIVATIONAL SONGS IN OUR LIVES !
SOME PEOPLE DON’T LISTEN TO ADVICE BUT MUSIC ADVICE TRAVELS DEEP IN THEIR BRAIN LIKE EXCUSE ME TO SAY “NARCOTIC DRUG”
HUMBLENESS , RESPECT AND GREAT COMMUNICATION SKILLS AS A BIZNESS MAN MADE ME FILL IN MY BANK ACCOUNT ,IT WASN’T JUST MUSIC ,I REPEAT NOT ONLY MUSIC CAN PUSH YOU IF YOU HAVE EGO ,BUT HEY THIS HUMBLENESS DOESN’T MEAN YOU SHOULD BE PUSHED AROUND …CLEAR !!!!!! MONEY HAS TO BE MADE AT ALL COST !!”SHATTA WALE STATED
“ANYBODY WHO TELLS YOU ,
CHALE ME I DON’T UNDERSTAND YOUR LIFE OOO..MOVE AWAY FROM THAT PERSON AND !
MARK IT !!??
THEY ARE THE SAME PEOPLE WHO WILL COME TELLING YOU ,YOU ARE THE BEST!!!
BE CAREFUL OF THYSELF” HE ADVISED
He, however, promised musicians in the country to educate them on how he always gets hit songs to his credit in a workshop which he will communicate the date later.
“ALL THOSE MUSICIANS FINDING IT DIFFICULT TO GET A HIT SONG IN GHANA AND MAKE MONEY, PLEASE I AM TELLING YOU TODAY THAT THERE IS A WAY..
AND UNLESS I TELL YOU ,BUT TO TELL YOU ,YOU NEED TO COME REGISTER AND JOIN US IN A WORKSHOP PROGRAM I ABOUT TO UNVEIL.” HE ADDED
