Charles Nii Armah, popularly called Shatta Wale has added another twist to the ongoing BET nomination snub brouhaha.
In interview granted to the media, the Kakai hitmaker explained that he is not really obsessed with awards hence does not feel bothered when his hard work is overlooked. He said what remains paramount to him is the pursuit of money to care of his needs and that of his family.
“One thing I want people to know is that we are not really bothered about awards. We are focusing on how the business will grow. I believe awards come naturally. I have been in my bedroom and people will call me that I have won awards in Germany.
When awards come and I am not included, I am not bothered. There are people who are focused on prestige, prestige is good but I am focusing on making the money. I love prestige too but until it comes, I am focusing on making money,” he said.
He noted that growing up, he did not dream of winning awards but rather drive in flashy cars, build mansions and make his family enjoy the quality of life the rich in society is enjoying and that is what his focus is in the industry.
