Shatta Wale started his one and half-hour performance with some of his old hit songs through to his latest hits, ‘Mahama paper‘, ‘Kakai‘, and ‘chop kiss‘ among others that have been ruling the airwaves in recent times.

At the end of his performance, he expressed gratitude to the people of Cape Coast for the massive show of support which made his performance a success, and promised come back again.

Pope Skinny was also at the show, but Yaa Pono and Nii Funny who were both at the venue did not perform because they showed up late.

Before Shatta Wale started his performance, he announced that he had told all the Police men at the venue to wait outside, because ‘ghetto’ men don’t deal with police.

Critics who monitored social media platforms agreed, this event has received massive compliments and placed Cape Coast on the music map and it’ also validates Shatta Wale’s stardom status.

Shatta Wale wasreportedly  paid $60,000 (GHS272,000) by Solash Entertainment for his Headlining performance.
