Lighting up our airwaves every Monday with the very best in dancehall music, Mista Hooli fans will be in for a treat on Monday with an array of special guests.
Chopping it up with Hooli first on The Dancehall Show is Shatta Wale!
With a catalogue of hits under his belt over the years, Shatta Wale has without a doubt, cemented his place on the global music scene as the King Of African Dancehall. The multiple award winning musician is currently the most sought after Ghanaian musician across the continent and beyond.
Previously performing under the name Bandana, the hitmaker achieved street credibility for his music at a time where Ghanaian Dancehall music was still heavily undeveloped. The star soon made headlines with his hit single ‘Moko Hoo‘ which featured fellow Ghanaian musician Tinny, scored the star a Ghana Music Awards nomination in that same year.
Bandana later disappeared from the music scene, only to resurrect almost a decade after with a new name and identity – Shatta Wale. His return to the industry was followed up with a solid repertoire of hit songs in the last four years which immediately became THE street anthems. Shatta Wale took back his rightful place in the music game with fan favourites such as ‘Dancehall King‘ and ‘Enter The Net‘ , loved by both the young and old, almost everyone.
Shatta Wale wouldn’t stop getting nominated and winning awards. He was adjudged the 2014 African Artiste of the Year at the Nigeria Entertainment Awards (USA) and also won The World Best New Entertainer at the 2014 International Reggae and World Music Awards (IRAWMA). In 2015, he won the Best Male Musician at the maiden edition of the GN Bank Awards (People’s Choice Awards) in Ghana.
Expect great things from Shatta Wale this year.
