If you follow Shatta Wale on Facebook under the account name Charles Nii Armah Mensah, you would have noticed that he’s never changed the profile picture he used over the years although there are lots of pictures of him on the internet.
Today, he’s shocked fans and non-fans alike when he changed that picture of him in a yellow shirt to a new one, that has a black symbol sitting on a white background. He didn’t just change his profile picture but his cover photo as well.
The dancehall artiste is expected to release his second album, ‘Reign’ since he became known as Shatta Wale. He launched his album, ‘After The Storm’ in 2016 at the Independence Square, Accra and it was the biggest album launch ever, which saw thousands of fans gather at the venue.
From all indications, this new album, ‘Reign’ means a lot to Shatta Wale to the extent that, it’s gotten him to change his profile picture after 12 years and replace it with a design which is likely from his Reign album.
Right after the change, all his fans have changed their profile pictures on Facebook and other Social media platforms to the new one their king used. We’ve seen several people post it too on their Whatsapp Status, Instagram stories and Snapchat.
So What Does That Profile Picture Mean?
Well, it’s obvious it’s got something to do with his upcoming Reign album. So from what we can see in the picture below, it looks like three I and the middle one has a crown on top of it, perhaps representing him, Shatta Wale and how he’s ‘Reigned’ in the music industry.
Shatta Wale had posted an earlier photo of him in his studio and in the background of that pictures, sees a painting of him sitting on top of a building as he watches over other buildings, with a crown on his head.
Shatta Wale has gotten to that level in the music industry where some feel, he’s the god of Ghana Music because of the achievements he’s chalked over the years and how he still remains the most sought after artiste in the country despite the fact that he’s a very controversial person.
For us at Ghbase.com, looking at that picture, the interpretation we have deduced from that picture is that; “Shatta Wale is the King of Ghana Music at the moment” —Yeah, kings don’t rule forever (The Real King Is Jus Taking a Nap, When HE Wakes UP….ya”ll know the artiste I’m talking about right?) another king can easily take that crown but if not for anything at all, he sits on top of his Genre and is the overall king when it comes to Dancehall music.
Well, those are my own interpretations. Tell me what you also think about the profile picture and what you think it means!
