Ghanaian dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale has been enskinned ‘Dancehall King’ by the Chief of Tamale.

The chieftaincy title was conferred on him by Chief of Tamale, Nyeb-Dakpema Fuseini Bawa, when the artiste paid him a visit at his palace on Friday.

Shatta Wale was in the palace to inform the Tamale chief about a concert he was to perform in Tamale on Saturday June 8, 2019, at the Aliu Mahama Stadium, dubbed “Storm Reign” concert.

Hundreds of fans and well-wishers trooped to the Dakpema Palace in Tamale for the ceremony.

“Thanks to his eminence the Chief and elders of the palace in Tamale, the people and youth of Tamale for the honour bestowed upon me. I know your prayers and love will fortify this union and open doors for the youth and people in Tamale and the rest of northern people. I am humbled,” Shata Wale, dressed in a smock and some other traditional regalia, said after the ceremony.

After the ceremony, Tamale music star, Maccasio joined Shatta Wale and hundreds of teeming fans for a float across some principal streets of Tamale.
