Beyonce’s new album Black is King is displaying African brilliance and spectacular visuals around the world. Shatta Wale dubbed the local champion and laughed at by his Ghanaian counterparts was the only Ghanaian artist featured in the Black is King album available on Disney plus. Even more impressive Beyonce, Shatta Wale and Major Lazer’s song Already, is the song that talks about a king discovering he is a royal. It is about black men and boys being enlightened about their greatness and their black heritage. Hence Black is King. The album also makes many references to the power of black women.
The Star Boy who believes the God he serves is mightier than all has displayed they never could predict his future. Bandana from Ghana has shown the world that truth telling, and hard work pays. He’s shown the people who tried to bring him down, those who didn’t want to play his music or allow him to play shows and the VGMA’s (Vodaphone Ghana Music Awards) who never wanted to give him the best dancehall act award, even though he deserved it many a times that he doesn’t fear anybody higher than his Jah. Now God has prepared a table before him with Beyonce in the presence of his enemies. As the King himself said “dem dey waste them a time, if you dey talk about “him he will shine. His father above has guided him to not fall into the trap of his enemies he never rated, he has killed them with prayers. As well as scattered all the bad men with adwenfi (an evil mind) against him. He continuously told them Jehovah has already made him great. If they say they are kings, he is Mufasa. Now Shatta Wale is the one singing “Long live the King, you a king you know it…shine already… the line is ready”
They tried to stop Shatta Wale he said, “no no no” I am royalty “don’t you know know”. They tried to stop Shatta and he told himself “go go go” he let it “bubble up “we have watched him “grow, grow, grow.” To the point he is now singing alongside Beyonce. The ghetto youth is now an international superstar.
He has shown us nnipa so y3 den (what is a human being that they can stop him) Some people’s lack of common sense and common happiness is the reason they want to bring people down. That should be a lesson for all of us. We should be like Shatta, open our minds, search for success, and never give up. We should ignore the negative naysayers who are suffering from sadness and ignorance and live our dreams. He snubbed them, attacked the music like war and followed his creativity.
Shatta Wale has taken over and shown Ghana to the rest of the world. He has gone harder. He never stopped the “push”, like he says in Already “real King always win oh”. He was “brave enough” to keep going regardless of all the obstacles in his path. This king “be stronger”, he never forgot who he was, and he has shown his fandem who knew he was a king love and that they were right. He has made it clear that he is own king, nobody comes to rule his world. Beyonce is also her own queen. We must be our own kings and queens too, so nobody rules our world.
