Shatta Wale music career
His dad exposed him to Jamaican music as a child by playing Reggae music in the house and travelling with him to the United Kingdom to visit his half-Jamaican family. At a young age, he found a passion for music as a result of these experiences.
His strong love for music caused him to lose focus in class, but his dad insisted that he finish high school. Wale went to Anfoega Senior High School in the Volta Region of Ghana, after starting at Winneba Secondary School in the Central Region of Ghana.
He followed his music dream both while studying in school and immediately after school, but his dad did not comply and preferred he became a lawyer, which resulted in a dispute between them, ultimately destroying their once-beautiful bond. Shatta Wale survived by sleeping in most of Accra's ghettos (Nima):
"There have been many times I went to sleep without food."
I've gone through every one of life's tribulations, including hell. I grew up among the people and has (sic) become one of them. It's no surprise that my music appeals to a wide range of people.
I thank the lord for allowing me to see the sun."
In an interview, this was said. Shatta Wale later returned to Jamaica to hone his dancehall skills. "Before mastering the dance hall genre, every boy in Ghana who was doing it came to me for tutelage."
So it's no surprise that my fans refer to me as King because they are familiar with Ghana's modern dance hall roots," Shatta Wale said in an interview. On Saturday, October 17, 2020, he celebrated his 36th birthday with a large birthday celebration at his East Legon home, which was attended by family and friends.
