King of Dancehall music in Ghana Shatta Wale, solidified his bragged about position when he appeared on the track ‘Already’ by Beyonce for her ‘Lion King’ sound track.
Shatta Wale, officially known as Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jr., is a Ghanaian Singer, Songwriter, Actor and CEO of Shatta Movement Empire. He won Artiste of the Year at the 2015 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards for his best known single “Dancehall King”, and has appeared films such as Never Say Never, The trial of Shatta Wale, and Shattered Lives.
His fans ‘Shatta Movement’ were entangled with rival fans of dancehall artist Stonebwoy, known as ‘Bhim Nation’. In the dispute Shatta was referred to as the local champion as in popularity was deemed as local whilst Stonebwoy had worked with Beanieman, Morgan Heritage and more.
However all this changed courtesy of Beyonce and Jay Z, and now the local champion reference is totally nonexistent. The song which dropped late 2019 has only just released visuals of the video which sees him and the Queen B, aka Beyonce, this is definitely going to set off much higher levels for the dancehall singer and act as a great intro for Beyonce’s upcoming movie ‘Black is King’.
Unfortunately we do not have the full video, however Watch a tiny clip below..

Ghana’s leading fashion event Accra Fashion Week is scheduled for 7-11 December 2022 following their 5th-year celebration last year in 2021. Accra Fashion Week is a platform for African designers that can be compared to fashion weeks across the major capitals. It aims to fill the void which sees tremendous creativity and culture across the continent with the absence of an operating fashion infrastructure.
The epic event took place at Ghana Dubai in Accra, and saw models march down the steps from the Kwame Nkrumah Monument whilst being followed by a spotlight, before circulating the central fountains. Memories of the exciting night still give chills as guests revisit the experience on youtube.
However, rest assured that 2022 is going to be even more exciting with greater performances and an upgraded designer collection. FashionGHANA.com is sure to bring you the exclusives we did on www.FashionGHANA.com/TV. All last year’s shows are available to watch on youtube.
