Medikal has praised Shatta Wale for having the vision to put Ghana music on the map. Ghana has been criticized for its absence on the grandest stage musically- the Grammy Awards. The Dancehall act expressed that although the accolades solidify an artist’s dominance, he was focused more on breaking grounds financially than winning awards. He went on to blame industry players especially the media for painting Ghanaian musicians in the wrong light and wrecking the music industry. The Grammy Awards is, without a doubt, the pinnacle of success musically and major Ghanaian artistes like Sarkodie, Shatta. Wale, Samini and Stonebwoy have been criticized.
Shatta Wale landed the biggest feature the country has ever had on the Lion King album. He recently shared a picture of himself and Queen Bey on Instagram.
