Ghanaian artiste and “Amount” hitmaker Charles Nii Armah Mensah popularly referred to as Shatta Wale has arguably the largest fan base in Ghana’s entertainment industry currently. And any program he is billed to perform in is sure to be a banger, attendance-wise.
The “Bliss on the Hills” Show organized by Media Excel Productions headed by Ernest Kwesi Ennin sought to bring the best of Ghana’s Reggae and Dancehall artiste including Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, Samini, Knii Lante, Jupiter, Wendy Shay, Ras Kuuku and Rude Bwoy Ranking closer to their fans on the mountains.
But to the disappointment of the fans who stood in the Kwahu-Abetifi cold, Shatta Wale did not appear on stage.
At around 4:00am when all other artists billed for the concert had performed, the fans who were waiting patiently to enjoy some good music from Ghana’s most popular artiste currently got some bad news; Shatta Wale was not performing.
This announcement was made around 4:30am by the Honourable Member of Parliament for Kwahu-East, Hon. Bryan Acheampong who sponsored the second edition of the 5 day event.

Reasons have been given by the SM King’s camp as to why he didn’t perform. According to sources, Shatta Wale was present at the venue but due to contract discrepancies, he didn’t perform. Shatta Wale indeed received the money, but the event organizer did not fulfill his part of the contract.
And the Shatta Wale we know would not tolerate such inconsistencies. Remember he did same to CAF sometime back?
