Shatta Wale Admits He Regrets Not Becoming A Lawyer

A-list Ghanaian dancehall performer Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jr., better known by his stage name Shatta Wale, has said that his biggest regret in life is that he did not pursue a legal profession. Even though he is a multi-award-winning singer, he still feels unfulfilled.

Shatta Wale told the BBC’s Stefania Okereke in a recent interview, “My biggest regret in life is that I didn’t become a lawyer.” He also disclosed that, after he has amassed enough riches, he might still go about becoming a lawyer in the future.

Shatta had also acknowledged that not everyone views or takes him as a “nice guy,” but he said he would love to be viewed as such. After graduating from high school, Shatta Wale changed his name to “Bandana” and recorded the popular song “Bandana from Ghana.” In 2004, the song saw great success in Ghana’s music business.

During the 2013 VGMA awards, Shatta Wale unexpectedly rose to the occasion, hurling obscenities at the organization because he claimed they had denied him the Dancehall artist of the year award in favor of a female dancehall musician named “Kaakie.”

“Dancehall King,” one of his biggest hits, released 2013, surprised everyone by taking over the airways, giving his career saw a giant leap.
