Ghanaian Dancehall Artiste, Charles Nii Armah Mensah better known as Shatta Wale has said that the songs he produces are to promote Ghanaian culture.
He revealed that Dancehall music does not pay and since he is business-minded, he does any type of music to fetch him money.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Paul Adom Otcherey of Metro TV on the Good Evening Ghana, he said his music cuts across all age groups and that he is always proud to hear kids sing his songs.
He said “People know me as dancehall artiste and they feel always I should do dancehall but that’s why I tell people this is business for me so whatever is commercial for me to make money I just do it.”
He also added that “Reggae dancehall music doesn’t sell much like you’re doing what the people like here. So I like to portray something that will appeal to from my father’s age to youths and to kids cos I have children that sing my song.
“Because I’m concentrating so much on Ghanaians, I’m not just taking it as if I’m doing music but I’m trying to promote what our culture knows,” he reaffirmed.
