Charles Nii Armah Mensah, popularly known as Shatta Wale says some Ghanaian artistes do not portray our culture in their music.
The dancehall sensation in an interview with Sammy Flex, host of Showbiz Agenda, said he has noticed that unlike him, many musicians in Ghana fail to depict culture in their works.
He spoke in reference to his recently released music video, for his song, “Gringo”. According to him, the music video portrays the way of life of the people within the particular jurisdiction he shot the video.
“Culture is a very important factor but unfortunately, it is always left out in most Ghanaian music. My music video portrays the beliefs of the people OF Texas, because that was my concept”, he stated.
According to Shatta Wale, music should have cultural taste in its theme hence, musicians should cultivate that habit
