Entertainment pundit, Arnold Asamoah Baidoo has indicated that Shatta Wale’s collaboration with American multi-talented singer Beyonce is a huge accomplishment.
Speaking on Saturday’s ‘Entertainment Review’ on Peace FM, Arnold noted that he was extremely happy for Shatta Wale. He stated emphatically that Beyonce is a worldwide superstar and one taking a picture with her is a big deal.
“This project is gargantuan, it’s huge oh” he exclaimed.
Arnold stated that even if Shatta Wale decided to quit music today, he would still rake in uncountable amounts of money forever.
“Even if Shatta Wale decides to retire today, he is sorted. Because in America, you can actually produce one hit album and go to sleep, because the system has been structured in such a way that one hit album would fetch you so much royalties” Arnold said on the show.
According to him, Shatta Wale is done. He has arrived. His generation is rich forever.
“But here he is, he is credited as a songwriter; so the American songwriting unit – RIAA – they will sort him out as long as he lives. Even when he dies, his children will enjoy his songwriting credit forever. He is credited for the sound score in the movie; again, he enjoys the royalties and then he’s credited as an actor…He is rich,” he emphasised.
Shatta Wale has been the trend in recent times, ever since his feature in Beyoncé’s music video hit screens around the world. The Already video which sees the Ghanaian dancehall star featured in, is just a few numbers shy of reaching 10 million views in just 4 days of its release.
