I will settle down when I'm 72 – Shatta Wale

Dancehall artiste Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jnr aka Shatta Wale says he will only marry when he turns 72.
“I will get married when I am 72 because at that time my wife won’t tell me she is going to market when actually she is going to the night club to have fun; at that age my wife won’t tell me she is attending funeral when she is really going on a trek with another man…at 72 you will always come home to see us in our lazy chair,” he said.
The 30-year-old musician revealed his parents, other family members as well as friends have been mounting pressure on him to get married and settle down, but that is the least on his priority list.
The dancehall artiste said he really wants to establish himself well and invest in various ventures before he even thinks about marriage.
“Last time I went to put some money in my account and I was telling my banker that this money is plenty and he told me the money is small. He [banker] said ‘you think GH¢150,000 is money, do you know the amount of money I have been counting’. Then I realized I need to get more and need to work harder,” Shate Wale said.
He added: “I have one daughter, Nhyera, who I cherish so much because she has brought a lot of luck into my life, so I really want to acquire certain things. I really want to get to a level where I will see that my kid’s future is secured before I plan on settling down with a woman.”
