Ghanaian dancehall artiste Charles Nii Armah Mensah, known in showbiz as Shatta Wale has launched his third album titled ‘Wonder Boy.’
The 13 –track album was launched during the second edition of his Reign Concert which was held on Saturday, October 19, 2019, at the Fantasy Dome in Accra.
A precursor to the main show was performances from ‘underground’ artistes such as Gucci Wale, Xhilla Roy, Kweku Smoke, Renner, among others.
The show opened in earnest with a performance by Kobi Rana who appeared on stage with a choreographed act.
Gospel musician Joyce Blessing and Jayana, an artiste on her record label, Dave Joy Records, took the audience to church with some of their hit songs including ‘Adam Nana’ and ‘I swerve You.’
There were other exhilarating acts by musicians like eShun, Eno, Tulenkey, J Derobie, Fantana, Kofi Mole, Dope Nation, Kwamina MP, Eno, Kuami Eugene, Wendy Shay and Macassio.
Medikal and his girlfriend Fella Makafui were a spectacle to behold. They put up a wonderful stagecraft, performing some of Medikal’s hit songs. He climaxed his act by throwing soe cash into the audience.
Epixode was in his usual energetic element as he treated the audience to his popular dance hall tunes. He did not leave without doing his latest ‘Afrobeat’ song ‘Wahala Dey’ which is themed on how affairs of the country have been mismanaged by powers that be.
One person most people least expected to have been at the Reign Concert was Kwaw Kese. Despite is recent beef with Shatta Wale, he mounted the stage to give the revellers a dose of his ‘street madness.’
What rather brought out the real ‘madness’ in him was when he spewed some swear words on stage after he had been pelted with bottles while performing.
The show could not have ended without the Fante Rap God giving patrons a bite of his great compositions including his latest banger, ‘Things Fall Apart.’
Shatta Wale, who mounted the stage at 3 am on Sunday, came in two sessions, performing hits after hits with the live band. He also did about five songs from his new album, the ‘Wonder Boy.
In the course of his performance, he stopped and gifted some lucky fans Infinix phones and other products. He said he had been directed by the Holy Spirit to show his fans love for their loyalty to his brand.
Some of the songs on the Wonder Boy album are ‘Melissa,’ ‘I had a Dream,’ ‘Bad Man,’ ‘California,’ ‘Aye Half-Caste’, ‘Gyata Bi’, among others.
The album is available for sale on online music stores.
