Controversial Ghanaian Dancehall artiste, Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jnr also known as Shatta Wale is in the news again for raining insult on some politicians in Ghana and describing them as a bunch of greedy people who thinks about nobody but themselves.
He allegedly made derogatory comment while performing to a mammoth crowd at festival at Suhum.
The ‘Dancehall Commando’ hit maker halted singing in the middle of his performance to advise his fans to eschew violence before, during and after this year’s elections before he attacked the politicians.
Prior to the insults, Shatta Wale had preached a message of peace to his fans and has urged them to stay united as one people irrespective of their divergent political affiliations.
“We need peace in our country, it does not matter if you dey NPP, you dey NDC, you dey CPP, you dey PPP, you dey FPP or you dey JPP, if that is what you want. Chose somebody who you think can rule you as a human being,” he urged.
He further counseled them not to be influenced by money from politicians in order to vote for a particular political party or individual and also ensure that they would not be lured by anybody to engage in violent activities.
The multiple award winning rapper went bonkers shortly after the advice and used the ‘F word’ on any politician who attempts to incite them to engage in chaotic activities in their quest to win this year’s elections.
“If any politician come to you and give you money to go and fight with another party, tell him Shatta says ‘F**k’ your mother. Any grown up person is supposed to give good advice. So if anybody decides to lure you into violence tell them that ‘wo maame t*’, he shouted.
He also said that same thing in Ga language.
Shatta Wale has gained notoriety for his attacks on some stakeholders in the creative arts industry especially those who publicly express dissenting views from his.
He has however succeeded in registering his comeback from his ten years recess through such acts and that partly contributed to his rise into stardom after rebranding himself as Shatta Wale from his former name Bandana.
