The late Spanish painter, Pablo Picasso once propounded; “Good artists copy; great artists steal”.
Self-acclaimed Dancehall King Shatta Wale finally unveiled the cover art and tracklist for his yet to be released album titled “Reign” which is scheduled to be released on the 13th of October 2018 at the Fantasy Dome inside the Trade Fair in Accra.
The unveiling of the tracklist and the cover art was part of activities to mark the social media week.
The album which has seventeen tracks features some of his great singles including “Gringo” and his “Amount” songs which have made waves on the airwaves.
The album art for ‘Reign’ sees an image of Shatta Wale painted with coal sitting on a black and white background with words like “Champion, Militants, Dancehall King, Prove Dem Wrong, SM4Lyf and even Majesty” with a gold chain hanging on his neck to match his gold colour hair.
Hours after the album cover art was unveiled, social media users pulled an old artwork of Rick Ross which has the same concept as Shatta Wale’s own which has raised concern as to why he ‘stole’ a foreign artiste’s idea when he could have been creative enough to create his own.
