According to entertainment critic Mr. Logic, he played an instrumental role in Shatta Wale’s name which has now become a household brand.
Logic says when Shatta Wale decided to come back into the industry, it was Shatta and Bandana but he used to mention Wale anytime he sang. Logic confirmed that the Shatta movement already existed and he realized the Shatta complemented the Wale so he advised that he uses it— the rest they say is history.
“Shatter was Bandana and whenever he sang he used the Wale name. He already had the Shatta Movement. So I recommended he used both names.
“He had another name aside from the Bandana which was vibrant on the street but prior to his comeback recently, he mentioned Shatta Wale in his hit song Dancehall King, it sounded so well to me so I recommended it to him which he accepted and that has been his trademark name.
“I believe in names because as an artist or an individual, names matter so much,” he said.
