Few hours after Shatta Wale announced the tracklist for his album and also released the cover art for his album on September 14 at the Social Media Week, Accra Mall, the album cover has created controversy.
Social media has pulled an old artwork from Rick Ross which has the same concept as Shatta Wale’s own and as usual, some people are castigating him on Social media for ‘stealing’ a foreign artiste’s idea when he could have been creative enough to create his own.
The album art for ‘Reign’ sees an image of Shatta Wale painted with coal sitting on a black and white background with words that means a lot to him with a gold chain hanging on his neck to match his gold colour hair.
You could see words and phrases like; “Champion, Militants, Dancehall King, Prove Dem Wrong, SM4Lyf and even Majesty’.
Well, there is no qualms in Shatta Wale taking inspiration from another artiste’s work, except that, the picture that was used as he looks like some ‘Slave’ on it but even that, perhaps there’s a legit reason why he settled for that.
