As the popular Chinese adage goes, the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. The story of most, if not every successful person in life always has some rough patches attached to it to garner the needed experience in order to face the bigger fight ahead.
Dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale has taken to his Facebook page to recount on the genesis of his music career, and how everyone was of the opinion that his career as a musician would amount to nothing.
His rather emotional post highlited that people refused to give him the benefit of the doubt initially, but he fought his way through and rose above every stereotypical odds that were placed in front of him. He however, gave credits and props to the few who believed in him and supported his vision from the very onset.
