Ghana Football Association President Kurt Okraku has met with Dancehall artiste Shatta Wale.

Kurt Okraku before the GFA presidential elections said he draws inspiration from Dancehall musician Charles Nii Armah Mensah known in music circles as Shatta Wale.

According to Kurt, he sees himself more in the "Kill Dem With Prayers" hitmaker who started from humble beginnings and he is now a pillar in the Ghana music industry.
