Multiple award-winning dancehall musician, Shatta Wale, says he wants to retire from the music scene after the release of his next album Gift of God (GoG).
He took to Twitter on April 1 to make the announcement adding that he will like to dedicate the rest of his life to helping other young artists make it in the industry.
However, his comment was received with skepticism with many saying he was making a joke because it was April’s fools.
However, speaking on Daybreak Hitz, on Hitz FM, Shatta Wale said it was not a prank reiterating that he wants to exit the industry so other artists can shine.
He added that he will not have problems financially especially since he has invested in other businesses while making music.
“It’s true. I will be one of the few musicians who will retire and be financially okay. I don’t want people to feel disappointed but I have businesses going well for me.”
“I did some stocking investments here in the states and it’s growing. It’s time for us to support the industry. We need to give chance to the upcoming too,” Shatta Wale said.
