“I remember the day I had a chat with Theresa and Kwasi of Parkwood Entertainment, an American management and entertainment company founded by American singer Beyoncé about King Shatta Wale being on The Lion King. “He is a real champion and his verse is killer” – that was the response I got from them after the song was sent.”
Charles Nii Armah Mensah is trending worldwide, Real Champion, Real King, you made Africa proud! Now the world will witness the greatness called Shatta Wale as that BIG TUNE drops! Thanks to Leslie and everyone who helped to make this see the light of day!”

Joe Mettle was in the studio to promote his new album ” Wind of Revival”.
