Charles Mensah, a Ghanaian Afrobeats singer better known as Shatta Wale, says he’s currently worth over $10 million and that should be a motivation to the youth.
“For now I can say that I am worth over ten million dollars. It is business, so if they will understand it like that, any other artiste can speak the way I speak. But sometimes you ask Ghanaian artistes whether they are rich, all they say is me I don’t disclose my worth but that is a lie,” he said.
“Because when you watch the likes of Jay Z, Kanye West, and other big artistes when they buy a new house they post it on the internet. So it is normal. And it’s not like I am bragging to anybody but it is also a motivation for the youth to believe in their dreams and work hard towards it.”
Shatta is best best-known for his song is ‘Dancehall King’, which led to his emergence as winner of the ‘Artiste of the Year’ at the 2014 edition of the Ghana Music Awards.
He also doubles as an actor, having appeared in the films ‘Never Say Never’, ‘The trial of Shatta Wale’ and ‘Shattered Lives’.
