"I respect Obinim, 4 other pastors"- Shatta Wale

Shatta Wale lists 5 pastors he respects

'Dancehall King' Shatta Wale has revealed that he respects some five Ghanaian pastors and will only heed to their advice, following the wake of rampant prophecies in the country.

A recent prophecy by Prophet E. K. Mensah of the Christ Vision Prayer Ministry that he is next to die after Ebony Reigns, irked the artiste, who threatened to burn down churches in December if he is still alive.

Shatta Wale, speaking in a radio interview, Monday, 12 February 2018, mentioned the men of God he says he respects and would take their advice seriously.

He said, “If I want to listen to people, I’ll listen to Mensa Otabil, Duncan Williams, I’ll listen to Pastor Pobee, I’ve never gone to his church before but he tells people what he sees about me and he’s a man of God. I’ll talk to Obinim, people don’t like him but what he has in his brain and his heart, Ghana hasn’t tasted it and Obinim is going to show Ghana God and people will see there is a living God…I have met Reverend Owusu Bempah before and when he shook me I felt that this man has touched me, I saw him as a brother, I felt this is another brother from God and these are people I listen to and what they say.”

The Freedom hitmaker said the prophecy that he will die does not scare him, attributing his success in the music industry to his covenant with God.

“A whole lot of people have spoken about me and they are dead and gone so I don’t want anybody to come and tell me about my life because nobody has a hand in my life, not even a mallam, no pastor, it was God who rose me from where I am to where I’m going. I’m telling the whole Ghana I have a covenant with God that is why people are hearing Shatta Wale, it is not medicine, let any mallam come out, let any juju come out…I have roamed a lot, but I’ve tasted what is God and what is man and man can’t do what God can do. So if preachers of such nature will come out, I and my Shatta movement are still waiting for him…if by December I’m still alive, I’ll burn churches in the country,” Shatta Wale angrily said.
