Revealed Shatta Wale's Lookalike Photo Which Went Viral Is Top Jamaican Artiste 'Gully Bop'


A picture that has found itself onto the internet has got a lot of people talking as the man in the photo looks almost like an ‘older’ version of dancehall act, Charles Nii Armah Mensah, popularly known in the world of showbiz as Shatta Wale. 
It appears the picture has already gone viral across social media platforms with many users in Ghana expressing shock at the striking resemblance between the unknown old man and the “Taking Over” song creator. 

Some social media platforms and pages captioned the picture, “This is Shatta Wale in 10 years”. 
Well, checks done by Your Authoritative News Website, Gh News Filla,  suggests that the 'old man' in the picture is top Jamaican artiste Robert Lee Malcolm, more popularly known as Gully Bop or Country Man, was born and raised in West Rural St. Andrew, Jamaica and later relocated to Grants Pen, Kingston, Jamaica. He is a testament to never giving up on your dreams, as Robert knew that he wanted to be a Deejay.

“Deejay (alternatively spelled DJ) is a term in Jamaican music for a reggae or dancehall musician who sings and “toasts” to an instrumental riddim. Deejays are not to be confused with disc jockeys from other music genres like hip-hop, where they select and play music. Dancehall/reggae DJs who select riddims to play are called selectors. Deejays who are more likely to sing are sometimes called singjays,” 

He tried that profession in previous years, but he did not accomplish much, as he only performed in Sting in 1992 and Reggae Sunsplash and struggled for twenty years to survive as a freelancer who did odd jobs and errands for his community.  Although he was a freestyler, he never sought to record music and in 2012 a New York based producer heard his talent and recorded him, but it was a one-hit wonder.
2014 marked the year that he was to fulfill his dreams even though he experienced much trials and tribulations. He was noticed by a post on Facebook, where a phone recording went viral and received many rave views on the social media site. Soon enough an Atlanta based company presented him to the world as a musician via YouTube and uploaded mix-versions of the song that first got him recognition on Facebook.
