Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jr popularly known as Shatta Wale has ended the 3Music awards nominees night in a nil show, meaning no nomination.
This has really shocked fans which has sparked social media trolls and questions as to how and why the “Hajia Bintu” hitmaker did not get a single nomination this year. Shatta Wale won more than 6 awards in the maiden edition of the 3 Music Awards, won 1 more award in the following year but failed to grab himself a nomination this year, that is an unwanted record, a complete retrogression.
What could be the reason? There have been speculations from some of the SM fans that, Shatta Wale did not file for nominations this year and that’s why he did not get a nomination but looking at the cordial relationship he has with the awards organizer, Baba Sadiq, the dancehall artiste would never have boycotted the awards and so that reason and excuse from the SM camp isn’t really convincing.
Another reason from the rival fans and other entertainment pundits is that, maybe the artiste work rate in the year under review wasn’t convincing as compared to possible competitors in the categories, hence the possibility of getting a zero nomination.
Now, 1Don is more like 0Don as far as 3 Music Awards is concerned.
Anyway, with or without a nomination, Shatta Wale is still among the best musicians in the country.
