Shatta Wale, the Ghanaian dancehall messiah, has stated in a recent post that he has no management team, a declaration that has ignited a new wave of debate on social media as netizens read his words differently.
Wale’s remark hasn’t gone unnoticed by some music fans, given his excellent brand and larger-than-life attitude in the mainstream industry. Others are unsurprised by his erratic and unpredictable behavior, blaming it on a lack of structure in his personal and professional lives.
During a recent interview on GTV’s Breakfast Show, the SM boss revealed this when the Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO), led by Rex Omar, announced that they owe him royalties totaling 30,000 for all the years he has been a commercial artist, beginning with his Bandana days in 2004.
