Shatta Wale deserves to be awarded ‘Artiste of the decade’ – Socrates Sarfo

With the annual Vodafone Ghana Music Awards some few days away, people have started predicting the winners for each category as well as the artiste themselves

Movie producer Socrates Sarfo has disclosed that Shatta Movement boss Shatta Wale no doubt deserves to be awarded as the “Artiste of the Decade” come Saturday 18th May, 2019.

Speaking to Peace FM’s entertainment review host,Kwesi Aboagye, the Director of Creative Arts, responsible for Programmes & Projects at the Commission for National Culture stated that the highly animated and energetic dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale is his pick for the category of artiste of the decade – per the definition of the category – and not Sarkodie as many people think.

“I think that influential artist like Shatta Wale has been previously robbed of one key category which is the artist of the year. Per the definition of artiste of the year… if you look at the definition and relevance of the artists, Shatta stands poles apart from all the nominees there.”

Shatta Wale joins Sarkodie, Samini, Becca, Joe Mettle, and others to battle out for the “Artiste of the Decade”.
