Self-acclaimed ‘Dancehall King’, Shatta Wale has said that he wishes Saturday classes would be held for Ghanaian artistes. The goal of this Saturday classes would be to address and tackle the lack of professionalism of Ghanaian artistes.
Speaking on the ‘Y-Leaderboard Series’ segment of the ‘Myd-Morning Radio Show’ hosted by Rev. Erskine on YFM, Shatta Wale said, “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.”
The ‘Bulletproof’ hit maker shared a secret on how artistes could attract relevant people in society, and that is to be original.
“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,” he said.
