Africa’s fastest and multiple award winning rapper, Michael Owusu Addo, known in the music scene as Sarkodie, has sent his celebratory words to Charles Nii Armah Mensah, aka Shatta Wale, over his record signing into the Zylofon media family.
The “Highest” Album maker took to his Twitter platform and wished Shatta Wale well for joining the entertainment giants.
The rapper also thanked the CEO of Zylofon Media, Nana Mensah Appiah. Sarkodie indicated that he was happy that the businessman was making strides to solidify the creative arts industry in Ghana with his moves. Sarkodie’s tweet read, “Congrats champion @shattawalegh on your new Deal.. Mr. Appiah definitely here to support the industry… up up and up !!!” The “Dem Confuse” hitmaker was at the East Legon Office of Zylofon Media to sign with the outfit. He was swamped by many of his fans and followers causing huge vehicular traffic on that stretch.
Some other artistes who performed at the signing were highlife musician Kumi Guitar and gospel artiste, Joyce Blessing. Unconfirmed reports indicate that the “Taking Over” hit maker put pen to paper after being enticed with a $1.5 million signing fee. Aside the huge amount of money involved in the deal, it is reported that a brand new car and a house will also be handed over to the musician as part of the package.
Shatta Wale now joins the ranks of Stonebwoy, Becca and Kumi Guitar as signees of Zylofon Media Earlier in January this year, there were some reports that he had thrown out longtime girlfriend, Shatta Michy from his house for cheating. Later, it was found out to be a publicity stunt.
