Did Shatta Wale’s ‘Reign’ art get Inspired by Rick Ross’ ?
Ghanaian dancehall artist, Shatta Wale announced the full tracklist for his ‘The Reign’ album days ago. Also, he released the cover art for his album. However, the album cover created controversy .
Social media snooped and pulled an old artwork from Rick Ross. It seems the Rick Ross album art has the same concept as Shatta’s own. Therefore, people drew the comparisons and started castigating him on social media for ‘stealing’ a foreign artiste’s idea when he could have been creative enough to create his own.
The album art for ‘Reign’ sees an image of Shatta painted with coal sitting on a black and white background. There are words that means a lot to him with a gold chain hanging on his neck to match his gold colour hair.
The phrases include; “Champion, Militants, Dancehall King, Prove Dem Wrong, SM4Lyf and even Majesty’.
