Shatta Wale is always an inspiration – DJ Azonto

Shatta Wale is always an inspiration  – DJ Azonto

One of Ghana's disc jockies, DJ Azonto says Dancehall artist Shatta Wale has being an inspiration to many musucians especially himself.

On CTV's Class Showbiz, DJ Azonto revealed that Shatta Wale made him realize that you don't have to have a good voice before you pursue music as a career.

And this inspiration has made him transit from been a disc jocker to a recording artist.

"I'm even surprised God gave me the voice to do music, because I don't really have a good voice for singing." 

"Observing Shatta Wale and a host of others, I've noticed music is not necessarily about a voice."

"He's my senior man."

"People like Shatta Wale inspired me to know that you can also make it. You know Shatta Wale is full of inspiration."

"I always say if following Shatta Wale, the only disadvantage is you may become disrespectful, in the sense that he gives you so much motivation it becomes clear that it's simply God at work and no one else." 

"It's true. You know why?" 

"I've stopped befriending some bloggers and some presenters because they frustrate and make the work too difficult at times. "Excuse me to say, they always want you to give them money."

"It's as if you are indebted to them forever and ever," he rubbed his beard. "Sammy, can we do this work successfully with this attitude?"

"Media personalities are promoting us, and every worker deserves to earn their fair due. If I go for an engagement and see the producer of show and give them money, it's fine, and in this world, if you want to be given you give, but don't make giving a matter of force and extortion and threaten to stop playing our music if we don't comply."

"The media should simply support local musicians."

"This is why I say if you follow Shatta Wale too much, he'll inspire you to the extend that you'd not respect some people because you'd notice even when they sideline you, by God's working, you still succeed." 

He poured out his concerns about music, bloggers, DJs, and media personalities in an interview on CTV's showbiz program hosted by Sammy Flex.
