‘Dancehall king’, Shatta Wale believes he would have gone far in life and would have been a more successful person today if the money spent to further his education was pushed into his music career.
Speaking in a recent interview on Monday, he said he regrets getting ‘too much’ education.
“My greatest regret… I regret I went to school too much,” Shatta Wale revealed.
According to him pursuing a career in music was his greatest interest and the subjects taught in school were too overwhelming.
Shatta Wale said he considered the subjects taught in school as a big distraction to his focus on music, but his father wanted him to advance his education.
“The subjects were too many for me in class. I studied Arts. Even from JSS I was complaining. My mind was not doing me right. I always complained to my dad. I told him there were times I will not do well… I was speaking the English well, I knew how to spell… I wanted to do music. I was in a haste but they were like I should wait and finish my school. I wish I had a little education and the rest of the money was pumped into this business. Like by now, I would have gone far but God is good, everything that happens is good,” he said.
Meanwhile, Shatta Wale has professed his readiness to run in the presidential race to become the president of the country if he is called upon by the youth to stand for the high office.
“I’ll go for it [presidency] because I believe Ghana is not for one person.. It is for all of us and if people feel I have that strength to talk for them [why not?]. They [politicians] shouldn’t come and blame me in future when the eyes of the youth open and they feel like we are tired. That time, it wouldn’t be violence or anything but they will just want that leader who can speak for them. I am ready to negotiate with the politicians. I will do that for the youth of Ghana. For the next generation… Our leaders also need to watch this side of life because the youth are complaining,” he stated.
