Outgoing Ghanaian Dancehall artist, Shatta Wale, known for his over confidence and cockiness in the music scene, has given assurances of his ability and resolve in relation to his artistic pull and influence, as he made it clear that he is fit to fill the greatest event grounds, known as 02 Arena, assuming he puts together a show at the venue.
The 02 Arena event grounds happens to be one of the greatest performing grounds in the United Kingdom. Mega superstars like Burna Boy and Wizkid have coordinated shows at the designated field on a few events, and have sold out ticket sales during their shows.
Debatably, certain individuals are of the assessment that Shatta Wale can’t top off the arena like his other competitors in the music business. Shatta Wale in an interview with Dennis Tawaiah, condemned such opinions and reservations seeking to suggest that he lacks the fortitude to fill up the 02 Arena during a show.
During the meeting on Personality Profile on Joy FM, the SM leader expressed that no other Ghanaian musician can outperform him in selling out the 02 Arena’s 20,000 space aside from him.
“Which Ghanaian artist on record as we speak has even sold 5,000 capacity venue in the UK?” the artist was humbly asked.
In any case, Shatta Wale expressed that he believes he can sell out the 02 Arena 20,000 space field. The host anyway contributed to the discussion by stating that an individual can strictly accomplish that target when they have a high exposure status and not when they organize a limited show.
“It is teamwork…It is a company that is working so if Dennis, Alodia, and all those people cannot get themselves attached to those companies to work then these are the words that will come out of his mouth because me, Shatta Wale I believe if I get a Live Nation behind me I can sell O2 hands down,” the artist confidently expressed.
He hinted that such words delimit the reach of the Ghanaian music industry.
The Dancehall artist intimated that Black Sherif, Ghana’s most currently hyped musician, could realistically fill up the O2 Arena.
Confirming his assertion, he said, “If you like let’s mark it. Let Empire say they will put up a show for Black Sherif in O2 Arena right now, the boy is going to fill 20,000 or even 30,000.”
