Ghanaian dancehall artist Shatta Wale won African Artist of the Year at this year’s Nigeria Entertainment Awards.
He beat fellow Ghanaian musicians, Sarkodie and R2Bees; South Africans artists, Uhuru, Mafikizolo and Mi Casa; as well as Congolese singer Fally Ipupa to win the award.
The 9th edition of the Nigeria Entertainment Awards (NEA) came off at the Skirball Performing Arts Center in New York Sunday night.
Nana Asiama Hanson (Bulldog), manager of Shatta Wale, told Myjoyonline.com that prior to the awards, they were confident “considering the amount of time and work we put in this year.”
Shatta Wale, who won Artist of the Year at this year’s Ghana Music Awards, has also been nominated for the 2014 International Reggae and World Music Awards (IRAWMA).
To make it a double on the international stage, he has to be beat off stiff competition from Daniel Bambatta Marley (Jamaica), MC Norman (Uganda), Alkaline (Jamaica), DABO (Tanzania), and Kranium (Jamaica).
The 2014 International Reggae and World Music Awards (IRAWMA) will come on at the Coral Springs Centre for the Arts, South Florida on Saturday, October 4, 2014.
Shatta Wale, who was in the US to receive the African Artist of the Year award, is expected to be back in Ghana by the end of the week.
