“Shatta Wale’s influence on the current course of Ghanaian music period cannot be overstated,” said Leslie Quaynor, Fantasy Entertainment Chairman & CEO. “For the past five years, his visionary work as a songwriter, producer, and musician has reverberated across genres and the music industry.
From ground-breaking hooks, to an uncanny hitmaking instinct, to shaping the sound of countless artists, he is building a phenomenal musical legacy. Shatta has never stopped moving forward, so I am thrilled to welcome him into the Fantasy family as he begins a dynamic new chapter of his extraordinary career to take his music and brand global. And I’m doubly thrilled that we are adding Jupitar to the Fantasy group as Shatta Wale’s label partner.”
“My relationship with Fantasy and Leslie formerly started over 6 years ago, when he gave me the opportunity to grace the stage during the record breaking Movado show at the stadium.’ He worked with me to bring my friend Alkaline to Ghana last year for another record breaking show. He is for real and more about action that talking. He has done a lot for Ghana music that people will never know but I am pleased to move with him to the next level to conquer the world and move Ghana music global.
