Dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale has said that he is a prophet of God dispatched to come to this world to help spread His message through music.
The musician who describes himself as the ‘Dancehall King’ told listeners of Adom FM’s Midday News Friday that God gave him that assignment to execute on earth.
“I believe that I am God’s prophet, it isn’t that I would be a Pastor but it is the doing of God…,” he said in response to the question if he is shocked that both the NDC and the NPP are making use of his songs for campaign.
While the NDC is making use of his ‘Mahama paper’ song for their campaigns, the NPP is also making use of his ‘Kakai’ song to show that the flagbearer and his running mate are the redeemers come to rescue the country.
Shatta said these actions by the NDC and the NPP do not really amaze him as that is part of the ‘covenant’ he had with God to do His work.
“I have a covenant to work with God and know this is a prophecy that God is revealing that I am a messenger who has come to the world to preach his message…,” he added.
He said he feels more encouraged when he sees both the NDC and the NPP making use of his songs which he says should serve as motivation for all.
“I do my songs for motivation so if Mahama feels the ‘Mahama paper’ gives him motivation and Nana feels ‘Kakai’ is his motivation, that is fine and I really become happy with that…,” he said.
Shatta further urged Ghanaians to work for peace before, during and after the elections as the country belongs to all.
“I really cherish my leaders, any which way the outcome of the elections go, Ghanaians should take it with a good heart….”
This, he said is the basis for his recent Peace song.
