More congratulatory messages have been pouring in following Beyonce’s release of the visuals for “Already”, a song she did with Shatta wale.
The Queen of Pop, a few months back collaborated with Ghana’s Dancehall King Shatta Wale as part of her Lion King project which has since been the subject of praise all over social media.
Beyonce also collaborated with other African artists like Wizkid. But when the song was released it did not come with any visuals which led to some entertainment pundits and social media users mocking Shatta Wale despite the rumour that Beyonce was in Ghana for a project related this song.
Social media has however been buzzing with goodwill messages for Shatta Wale on the milestone he has achieved with many insisting this singular act is a huge publicity for Ghana and a feat recognized worldwide.
The video since its release has been trending number one on YouTube and other platforms. Ghanaian celebrities and his colleague Musicians have jumped on the praise singing wagon as they extol the virtues of the Dance hall king.
One of the earliest and perhaps surprising comments came from Sarkodie, a man who is regularly on different sides with Shatta Wale, as he took to twitter to “Big Up” Shatta Wale with the words “Big Moment”.
A contender for the dancehall king crown, Stonebwoy who recently ended a long standing ‘beef’ with Shatta Wale also had these hearty words to share:
“Congratulations @shattawalegh Big Video! Proud Of You #Already My Blood #Ghana2DWorld”
Well the latest exhortation is from Rapper Medikal, who has known to have named Shatta Wale as his father, as he in a tweet requested for a frame of the iconic picture of Shatta Wale and Beyonce.
Well it appears this request has already being met as he later posted another picture depicting what he(Medikal) demanded.
Many other entertainment pundits and critics have talked about how this will lift the face of the Ghanaian music industry and how it will also open up the sector for more International collaborations.
