Shatta Wale Wins Award In New York

Even though he seems not enthused about awards schemes, his hard work and consistency have won him a couple of awards in the music industry.

On Saturday, 20th May 2017, dancehall artiste Shatta Wale won the overall Best Entertainer award at the first edition of the Ghana Entertainment Awards USA which was held in New York in the United States of America. His song ‘Kakai’ also won the Best Song award.
