Shatta Wale has shared an inspiring post about his journey in music and how people discouraged him when he started producing beats and adding lyrics to it.
According to him, his friends and acquaintances doubted if he will ever make any headway with his ‘konko’ sounds but with determination he’s now one of the most sought after artists in Africa.
Shatta Wale made this known in a post on social media.
WHEN I STARTED THIS MUSIC CAREER ,MOST PEOPLE SAID I WONT REACH ANYWHERE..I BOUGHT A PENTIUM 2 PC ,INSTALLED FRUITY LOOPS AND STARTED PLAYING BEATS AND ALL I COULD HEAR PEOPLE SAY WAS , MY BEATS WERE TOO DRY AND SOUNDED LIKE “KONKO” BUT “PAA KWESI” OF TV3 “MUSIC MUSIC” FAME GAVE ME THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHOWCASE A SONG I RECORDED CALLED “DEM A FUNNY”… HE BELIEVED IN MY BEAT AND THAT MOTIVATED ME .. AKUMA VILLAGE ,TAWALA, LABADI BEACH AND NIMA WAS THE ONLY PLACE I WAS PUSHING MY MUSIC. BIG UP TO OSAGYEFO , KOJO KOMBOLO ,JAH T, MAMA AND PAPA TAWALA , BILLY JANE AND HER TEAM FOR BELIEVING IN ME ..
