Ghana’s award-winning dancehall artiste, Charles Nii Armah Mensah, popularly known as Shatta Wale, has reacted to his possible Grammy Award win in 2020.

The ‘Gringo’ hitmaker took to the micro-blogging platform, Twitter, to thank his fans and American pop icon, Beyoncé for paving the way for his Grammy nomination for ‘Best Compilation Soundtrack For Visual Media’.

Not long ago, Shatta Wale was featured on Beyoncé’s Lion King: The Gift album and the buzz went worldwide with Shatta Wale trending number eight on Twitter for the first time.

His song ‘Already’ garnered the highest votes when Billboard made a poll on their website querying which song on the Lion King album made numbers.

With regards to the Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media category, the Grammy award in 2020 will be given to “to the artist(s) and/or ‘in studio’ producer(s) of a majority of the tracks on the album.

“In the absence of both, award to the one or two individuals proactively responsible for the concept and musical direction of the album and for the selection of artists, songs and producers, as applicable. Award also goes to appropriately credited music supervisor(s),” per Grammy’s Website.

In the light of this, Shatta Wale has his fingers crossed on winning a Grammy award next year.

He tweeted “At long last my name has entered #GRAMMYs, thanks to the Beehive team!!!! Patience is truly the key!!! Pah pah pah pah.”

However, others nominated in the same category were Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ by (various artists); ‘Rocketman’ by Taron Egerton; Spider-Man: Into the spider-verse by (various artists) and A Star is Born by Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper.

James Bond Will Remain Male – Producer

Published

‘No Time To Die’, which will be released in April, marks Craig’s final outing as 007, and his replacement has not yet been announced.

“James Bond can be of any colour, but he is male,” producer Barbara Broccoli told Variety.

“I believe we should be creating new characters for women‒ strong female characters.

“I’m not particularly interested in taking a male character and having a woman play it. I think women are far more interesting than that.”

The forthcoming ‘Bond’ film would see actress Lashana Lynch play a female 00 agent after Craig’s ‘Bond’ has left active service.

Lynch was seen in character for the first time in the trailer, reigniting the conversation about whether James Bond himself could be re-cast as a woman for the next film.

Broccoli oversees the franchise with her half-brother Michael G Wilson. “For better or worse, we are the custodians of this character,” she said. “We take that responsibility seriously.”

The pair reflected on how the Craig era has altered the direction of the franchise.

Pierce Brosnan’s final ‘Bond’ film, 2002’s ‘Die Another Day’, was a financial success but was criticised for pushing the boundaries of realism.

The film’s plot involved a giant space laser and an invisible car.

“We got too fantastical,” Wilson said, referring to the film. “We had to come back to Earth.”

Craig’s era has, in contrast, more closely resembled the original character Ian Fleming wrote.

Martin Campbell, the director of ‘Golden Eye’ and ‘Casino Royale’, admitted he was not convinced Craig was the correct choice to begin with, but came around with Broccoli’s persuasion.

“To be honest, it took me a little while to see it,” he said. “Daniel’s acting was terrific, but he wasn’t a pretty boy. Barbara was adamantly in favour of him.”

Craig had originally indicated he would not return to the series, but agreed to film one more after speaking with Broccoli.

“Barbara doesn’t take no for an answer,” Craig said. “It’s not in her wheelhouse.

“I had a nice long break, which I really needed. And then she was just persistent and came to me with some ideas, which we started formulating, and I got excited again.”
