Ghanaian dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale has chalked another achievement in 2021 as his songs were featured in a 2020 Netflix blockbuster titled, Black Beach.
Born Charles Nii Armah Mensah, the artiste who never misses the opportunity to warn his colleagues to make money will be smiling to the bank as the Esteban Crespo-directed movie is released worldwide.
Among other songs that scored the movie, Shatta Wale’s ‘Ayoo,’ Mama Story, and My Level also had ample playtime. Hit single ‘Ayoo’ was very loud in a night club scene in the movie.
The Netflix blockbuster also featured scenes from the Elmina Castle and its environs.
The Shatta Movement fan base is already stoked about the development and has been in the trends since the news broke.
