Billboard claims 35 years old Shatta Wale is actually 20 years old which got many people laughing and questioning the credibility of the popular brand.
Billboard is out with a new initiative dubbed “Billboard Local Heroes” which seeks to recognize hardworking African musicians.
Shatta Wale is a few of the celebrities profiled by Billboard in this latest initiative.
Unfortunately, Billboard’s profile on Shatta Wale got many people laughing and questioning the credibility of the initiative after the editor wrote he is 20 years old whilst he is actually 35 years old.
“Wale’s 2019 album is called Wonder Boy, and the 20-year-old singer-songwriter and actor seems determined to live up to that name. The country’s two biggest political parties have used his songs in campaigns; his 2018 album, Reign, hit No. 6 on Billboard’s Top World Albums chart; and in April, he organized the online Faith Concert to cheer up fellow Ghanaians during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
