Reunion of Shatta Wale and Shatta Michy a must

Music is an art form and cultural activity whose medium is sound organized in time [Wikipedia]. In ancient as in medieval and modern history, music exerts influence on the historic event principally as a carrier of thought. Throughout the story of human race, it might be said that musical influence makes itself felt aggressively , as a racial , national or religious stimulant , popularizing new or already established thought or conservatively handing down national traditions, superstition and cult ideas from generation to generation[Frederick H Martins].

It is deserving to state that music exert much influence on individuals in society. Other than that, it should represent nature’s most stupid blunder and colossal waste of time. The pre-occupation of many musicians including hip life artiste, highlife artiste, gospel artiste, reggae and dancehall artiste or afro pop artiste is not in the accumulation or expansion of their wealth, but to see their songs as a motivational force for people in their daily lives.

I do not want to overrate or prejudge the self-acclaimed Dancehall King – Shatta Wale, and his supposed ex-girlfriend or ex-wife as others put it, but I would want to say vehemently and emphatically state that their divorce is an affront to their own reputation especially on the part of Shatta Michy. The SM fans have regretted of being inspired by “low tempo, Baby-chop kiss, bullet proof “ and many motivating songs to the Ghetto Youth boys and modern day Romeo and Juliet. These songs in particular strengthened relationships by their powerful lyrics.

“You light my world like some bobo”-low tempo. Shatta Michy!! Was she not the one who in the low tempo banger said that she wanted to see him (Shatta Wale) by her side every day? On the presumption that some readers have little knowledge about this, you download the “low tempo” track. How powerful and motivating is the “baby chop kiss” track. Are the lyrics in the songs so empty and non-motivational that you cannot take inspiration from them. Shatta Wale!! . I believe with certainty that that were inwardly inspired to make music to the world and that your career and personality is not a mere exhibition. Your songs undoubtedly have become a heart to the heartless Ghetto Youth boys and an invisible force which binds lovers and broken souls and hearts in the world. SM fans are calling for the reunion between Shatta Wale and Shatta Michy for the sake of Shatta Majesty, your future and world. Forward this message till it gets to Shatta Wale, Shatta Michy and the entire Shatta Movement. Long live the SM family.
