There is an ongoing discussion on social media about a 16-year-old Facebook post of dancehall artist Stonebwoy wanting to be like Shatta Wale, then called Bandana.
Stonebwoy in the Facebook post dated 7th January 2006 stated that he would like to be like Banadana now Shatta Wale when he grows up. He wrote, “I want to be like Bandana when I grow up. Up up. Bandana from Ghana”.
Ghanaian reggae-dancehall performer Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jr. entered the music business in 2004 and has been active since. Formerly known as Bandana, he now goes by the stage name Shatta Wale.
After graduating from high school, Shatta Wale adopted the moniker “Bandana” and dropped the top-charting single “Bandana from Ghana.” In 2004 the song received a lot of airplay in the Ghanaian music scene.
