Shatta Wale

 

Dancehall King, Shatta Wale last Saturday received a key to the City of Worcester, Massachusetts after his After The Storm tour in the USA.

The musician has been very active in Ghana for the past four years and it is not surprising the Mayor of Worcester, Joseph Petty presented the award to the ‘Taking Over’ hitmaker in recognition of his contributions to the arts and for honouring the city of Worcester with his presence.

Shatta who is known for songs such as Ayoo, Dancehall King, Hosanna, Dancehall Commando, Chop Kiss left Ghana last week for the USA for his tour.

The key also symbolises that, the controversial artiste now possess the rights and privileges of a freeman to the city.

The Key to the City of Worcester has been given away hundreds of times over the years; each time it is a carefully considered gift from the sitting mayor to a resident of Worcester or respected visitor, presented as a recognition of their contributions.

Worcester’s Key to the City programme was started in 1924 by then-mayor Michael O’Hara, whose grandson was the first to receive a redesigned version of the Key when they began production in 2012.
