Ghanaian multi- award winning dancehall artiste Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jr. popularly known by his stage name as Shatta Wale has condemned people who are constantly attacking successful people because they like to think that their wealth is usually acquired in shameful ways.
The global icon passed the message of advice to haters in an Instagram video where he said that there is no need for an individual to slam successful people without any credible evidence that their wealth is ill-gotten. He said that success comes from hard work and people who don’t respect hard work, can never understand success.
"Ghana is full of hate. We always attribute people's success to money rituals. You don’t know me but you're always talking about my character. People always have something to say about everything," he said.
Shatta Wale added that people should stop focusing on matters that do not concern them, but instead, channel their strength into more constructive things, that will help them and those around them grow. He further advised his colleagues to work hard and start to think outside the box if they ever want to feel the taste of success. He told them that laziness and inconsistence, does not result into success.
