Although he has been chalking several feats since he hit the limelight as Shatta Wale(formerly Bandana) more than a decade ago, the music business of the Taking Over artiste had a major boost on the international market when he collaborated with Beyonce on the song, Already which featured on the latter’s album, The Lion King: The Gift.
Applause for Shatta’s talent got louder last year following the release of the official video of Already in July and it seems there’s no stopping for the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards(VGMA) 2014 Artiste of the Year as he continues to make bigger exploits on the global entertainment scene.
