View World Music Days Events for this Artist
Growing up in his native country Ghana, Shasha was inspired by such great artists like Bob Marley, Stevie Wonder, the Commodores, Fela Ransom Kuti and many others. He was also profoundly influenced by the dedication, personal sacrifice and courage of Nelson Mandela. His singing career began whilst he was still a teenager and he quickly amazed local audiences with his stunning voice and remarkable vocal range.
Not surprisingly “Tell Freedom,” his debut album hit the charts as soon as it was released. This was followed by several other recordings, all of which achieved great success on the local African Music scene. During the first Miss Universe Beauty Pageant in Ghana, Shasha stole the show with a performance that tore the house down and greatly impressed international visitors.
Shasha led fifteen top Ghanaian artists in an all star musical collaboration which was produced via the sponsorship of the Johns Hopkins University as a benefit against HIV/AIDS in Africa. Truly a musician with a heart he has been at the forefront of the war against HIV/AIDS using his music to break down the stigma of the disease, travelling from village to village and deliberately embracing the sick and those orphaned because of the epidemic.
So far Shasha Marley has not relented in his pursuit to make a difference through the powerful message of his songs and his constantly uplifting live performances.
