According to Shatta Wale, he has made a lot of money and his retirement from music will enable him to venture into other businesses so as to create more employment for others who are into music.
He wrote, “THIS #GOGALBUM WILL BE MY RETIREMENT ALBUM. Made enough to go into new businesses and create employment for those who still want to follow the course !.”
Shatta Wale is getting set to release the “Gift Of God.” He has previously released studio albums like “After the storm (2016)”, “Cloud 9 (2017)”, “Reign (2018)” and “Wonder Boy (2019),”.
Shatta Wale has been in the news lately since Nigerian artists Burna boy and Wizkid won at the 2021 Grammy Awards. He called out the Ghanaian media for not supporting Ghanaian musicians and projecting them in a bad light to the public. It is not clear if that is one of the reasons he has decided to quit. What is however clear is that his announcement to quit music has left his supporters and particularly the Shatta Wale Movement heartbroken. They are hoping it is just an April fool.
