I roamed Accra for five years without getting a producer - Shasha Marley

The Ghanaian Reggae singer Julius Amua-Sekyi Shasha known in the music scene as Shasha Marley in an interview with Agyemang on Legends on TV XYZ reveals that, he roamed the whole of Accra with his demo begging for producers to produce him, but no producer was willing to help him. 

According to the “Maata” singer all the producers he went to, when he completed secondary school told him to change the language of his songs to Twi since it was in English. “The producers were skeptical to produce me because I was singing in English which to them was not going to get the audience”.

According to the “Twin city Mafia” singer, the name Shasha Marley was given to him way back in St Johns school. The reason was that he could sing all the songs of Bob Marley during entertainment in his secondary school and that is how he got his name.  He also said that, Shasha means Great one, whiles Marley comes from Bob Marley. 

According to the conscious reggae singer, he played with the Osabarima band in the 80’s and the Gold Nugget in Obuasi from 1990 to 1994. He toured Ghana and Ivory Coast with C. K. Man’s band. He was part of the singers who warmed the stage for C. K. Man before he performed. 

He again said that his music life took a different dimension when he met a Frenchman at Ringroad and he took him to Ivory Coast where a production house produced his songs. He became popular in Ivory Coast and that aided him to become popular through out the world. He came back to Ghana in 1999 and later on Ghanaian producers started approaching him to help him sell his songs.
