Ghanaian dancehall artiste Charles Nii Armah Mensah, popularly known as Shatta Wale, has stated that his first dream was to become a top-notch lawyer before switching to music when that dream didn’t materialise.

He said this on Monday, November 2, 2020, when speaking on 3FM’s mid-morning show Urban Blend.

“After school, I wanted to be a lawyer,” he said, adding: “My dad also wanted me to be a lawyer. After school, I told him I wanted to do music for about two years,” he disclosed.

He added that it took him some time to get his music acts together.

“When I started as Bandana, I realised that it was not going well. I was not getting money from shows and my record label too was bad. So, I took some time to rebrand and come again,” Shatta added.

The artiste was formerly known as Bandana in his heydays. Now known as Shatta Wale, he has succeeded in getting a collaboration with some top International artistes like Beyonce, Eminem amongst others.
