Could it be that Shatta Wale’s sudden break from social media was a strategy for a change in genre?
Like many others who have switched from one genre to the other, Shatta Wale could be making a sharp dive into Highlife music.
Well-Known for tapping into other genres apart from dancehall, the ‘My Level’ hitmaker would soon be switching up from dancehall to releasing more highlife songs.
After closely monitoring his style of music for a while now, It won’t be a shock to see him venture into a serious highlife business.
Most of Shatta wale’s post on social media have this hashtag #HyLyf, and this tag is meaningless if He has no intention of making a journey into Highlife Music.
A recent rocket-reminder was when Nigerian Superstar, Burna Boy won the ‘Best International Album’ for his album ‘Twice As Tall’ at the just-ended 63rd Grammies.
This great feat Burna Boy achieved with Afrobeat sparked a series of controversies across traditional and social media platforms with Ghanaians bashing their artists for not living up to expectation.
Some were of the opinion that certain songs our artists churn out are not quality and can not win a grammy, for that matter, the need for a more quality sound and good music.
Come to think of it, Shatta Wale’s move into Highlife Music will make a significant impact and make his brand more refreshing to a colossal number of International music consumers.
After winning highlife song of the year with ‘My Level’, Shatta Wale could easily grab a grammy with Highlife Music, just as Burna Boy did with His Afrobeat album.
