Controversial Dancehall artiste Shatta Wale born Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jnr, is calling on the citizenry to embrace peace ahead of the December 7 polls.
“We are brothers and sisters let us embrace peace. Shatta Movement is for peace. Let us show we love Ghana more than everything”, he said.
The self-acclaimed Dancehall King Shatta who was the guest artist at the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Tamale Central Constituency Campaign Launch on Saturday October 1, 2016, urged Ghanaians to work towards maintaining the current peace.
The musician whose “Mahama Paper” has been adopted as the official campaign song of the NDC, for the first time, performed on a political stage to launch the reelection bid of the Minister for Roads and Highways Alhaji Innusah Fuseini.
Late last week, the award winning dancehall artist described the use of his ‘Mahama Paper’ song as the official campaign song for NDC as one of God’s many miracles.
According to him, he couldn’t have had a better person endorsing his song than the President of Ghana which is a big boost to his musical career.
“I’ve not sold the song, as for me Shatta, I’m doing my job…for instance if the NPP calls on me to perform at their function I will do that, if the NDC also calls on me, I’ll do same but I will not do that to endorse any political party, or ask my fans to vote for this party or that one because the votes lie with the people, they will decide.”
He added: “The use of my song as the official campaign song of the NDC is one of the miracles of God. If I’ve played a song and the President who is ruling Ghana is using it for his campaign then I don’t have a problem with that. In the same way the NPP can also get a song that they will use to do their campaign. This should tell everyone that my fans are not only on the street or the radio presenters but I have fans when it comes to the political industry. So if Mahama is using it for his campaign…the reward comes from God, so we leave everything to God.”
