Self-acclaimed dancehall king in Ghana, Shatta Wale, says though he was not regarded as a serious student back in the day in school, the blessings of the Lord has lifted him to achieve successes in life.
On the occasion of his 34th birthday Wednesday, he preached how one can have all the academic degrees but without God’s blessings such a person will be “nobody”.
Arguably the most criticised Ghanaian musician in recent times, Shatta who has within the last five years founded and managed one of the best and strongest movements, Shatta Movement, in Ghana’s music industry, launched his latest album [Reign] last Saturday.
However, his perceived loudmouth attitude has seemingly made him an enemy of hundreds of Ghanaians and musicians, particularly his contemporaries.
Some critics have argued that is his stock in trade hence his rants should be disregarded, while others have labeled him as an unintelligent person. Cocky, controversial braggart are some of the words used by critics to describe the musician whose songs have become popular in all corners.
In a tweet to mark his birthday, the ‘champion’ man apparently confirmed arguments that he is an unintelligent person but then the blessings of the Lord has made him achieve a feat someone with academic degrees cannot attain.
“When I was in school , I had intelligent boys who my teachers referred to as serious students and that I wasn’t . But little did they know there was a difference btwn intelligence and Blessings !! You can hv all the degree but if u not with God ..u nobody !!!” he tweeted with an artwork of him on a throne to depict his self-acclaimed kingship
