Presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has revealed he is a big fan of the self-acclaimed Ghanaian dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale, whose hit track, Mahama Paper, has become a key campaign song of the National Democratic Congress.
At a mammoth rally Sunday afternoon at the Accra International Trade Fair Centre, Nana Akufo-Addo was ushered to the stage with another hit song of the artiste, Kakai.
On Monday, Shatta Wale who was apparently surprised, tweeted that he did not know the three-time presidential candidate of the NPP is a big fan of his. “I never knew Nana Akufo [Addo] was a great fan …U deh come like kakai ampa …This year’s politics is called shattatics,” he tweeted.
The tweet caught the attention of Nana Akufo-Addo who also responded to Shatta Wale, saying “YES! I’m a big fan,” which was accompanied with a thumbs-up emoji.
Yes, I’m a big fan! ???????? https://t.co/L2014oM8z0

Ahead of the elections, some Ghanaian movie and music stars have endorsed their support for Nana Akufo-Addo. Well, will Nana Akufo-Addo’s revelation that he’s a big fan of Shatta Wale spur the musician to also endorse the candidature of the NPP candidate?
