Earlier in the month one pastor in Ghana made a prophesy that Dancehall music star Shatta Wale will die and the prophecy shook the entire social media when the cleric announced earlier in the month that the singer would die on December 24th, 2018.

Most of his fans had been eagerly waiting for the doomsday to confirm if the singer would actually give up the ghost or survive. It is the 26th of December and it all seemed to be a fake prophecy after-all. Shatta Wale who had been silent since the latest death prophecy, then immediately spoke out after realizing he had survived the day he was supposed to die.


He took to his Facebook page to give his reaction:

Bandana later released his debut album titled “Bandana from Ghana”, and took a short break from the music industry .

After the musical hiatus, he came back better and stronger after rebranding his himself to Shatta Wale and released his song “Dancehall King” in 2013, a song that instantly became a hit.
Shatta Wale’s rose to fame occurred in 2013 VGMAs, award after releasing a diss track for the organisers of the Ghana Music Awards titled “Me Need No Awards” because he alleged the organisers robbed him ,the Dancehall Artiste of the Year to female Dancehall Artiste Kaakie.

It was re reported in May 2014 that Wale’s song “Wine Ya Waist” featuring Nigerian musician Davido was one of five “must-listen to” songs. The same year, his song titled “You Can’t Touch Me” was widely used for the Dancers Against Racism Campaign Worldwide.

Shatta Wale was all over the news in 2015 after he asked not to be nominated in the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards knowing fully well that he could have won the prestigious Artiste & Song of the year for the second time running with his hit songs Dancehall Commando featuring Sarkodie, Party all night long featuring Jah Vinci Wine ya waist featuring Davido and Korle Gonno among many hit songs he released the preceding year.
