Shatta made the revelation in an interview with Ghanaian broadcasters Adom FM where he recounted his experience at the awards.
“Apart from meeting other artists and talking about collabs, the money too was good. I got 40,000 dollars. Let me call it grand. I made 40,000 grand. When you are paid well like that, you respect what goes on because they work professionally.”

Talking about his impressive display on the night, the ‘Everybody likes my Tin’ crooner added: “I don’t like pressure and on another level, people respect you when you act like a matured person. They invited four of my crew we came with six people so on another level they realized we as a team knew what we were doing”.
The Awards, hosted by South African on air personality Robert Marawa and Ghanaian actress Juliet Ibrahim, featured the very best of African entertainment with the likes of D’Banj, Di’Ja and Korede Bello from Nigeria, Ahmed Soultan of Morocco, Malian legend Salif Keita, among others.
