What a year for Dancehall artiste Shatta Wale, what a year! The man has the most popular tunes in the country; he just toured Europe, USA and the Caribbean’s. He got his song used for a Jamaican movie and now this big news. Shatta Wale has landed a big deal with his 2015 hit song Kakai in one of the world’s most played video game, Grand Theft Auto.
With only the FIFA franchise from EA Sports rivaling it, Grand Theft Auto (GTA) is an action-adventure video game series created by David Jones and Mike Daily and primarily developed by Rockstar North (formerly DMA Design), and published by Rockstar Games. Most games in the series are set in fictional locales modeled on cities, usually Liberty City, Vice City or San Andreas.
The game play focuses on an open world where the player can choose missions to progress an overall story, as well as engaging in side activities, all consisting of action-adventure, driving, third-person shooting, occasional role-playing, stealth and racing elements.
The series focuses around many different protagonists who attempt to rise through the ranks of the criminal underworld, although their motives for doing so vary in each game.The game is home to over 17 trillion players worldwide and worth $1.7billion.
This should be some something for the Ghanaian artist. Shatta Wale Kakai will be used in the game play when cars are picked up randomly or during club scenes in the game. Kakai by Shatta Wale could get its slash in the upcoming GTA Auto 6 scheduled to be released hopefully in June 2018 when things go as planned and the requisite confirmation from the GTA bureaucrats.
To the juicy bit, so to calculate fortunate Shatta Wale’s GTA Auto 6 worth should Kakai make it on GTA in 2018 will be $744,000 every year. Why won’t you laugh to the bank with these figures?
