1995 FIFA and European Footballer of the Year George Oppong Weah has named his three favourite Ghanaian musicians in a list that includes Castro, Wutah and Shatta Wale.
Weah who had a close friendship with hiplife musician Castro says the former is his best musician, but also like the music of Wutah and Shatta Wale whom he called his own man.
“I love Ghanaian music very much and my best Ghanaian musician is Castro. He used to come visit me at home and I loved to listen to his music. I also love Wutah too and my own man Shatta Wale. I have known Shatta Wale since he was Bandana and he was always with me. I loved his passion and drive and till now, I always listen to his music. He is really big in Liberia and I’m planning on taking him there for a concert before the elections.” George Weah said on StarrChat.
