Shatta's Gift of God album release has been dogged by issues since it was first announced last year.

The musician postponed its release last year because of what he said was the negative impact of the Coronavirus on mankind.

"We were looking at dropping the album this year, but upon second thoughts looking at how the coronavirus pandemic is taken a heavy toll on mankind, we have decided to postpone the final release date to next year 2021".
