The Police has disclosed that they will investigate a video which is circulating on social media showing dancehall artiste Shatta Wale firing a gun.

The Public Affairs Director of the Ghana Police, ACP David Eklu told Accra-based Hitz FM that it is an offence to fire a gun with no lawful reason.

“If you fire a gun without lawful and necessary reasons it is an offence,” he said.

The Police PRO explained that they will have to examine the video very carefully since it could have been doctored.

“I have seen the video I don't know the circumstance under which the video was shot. For all we know it could have been tailored to create an impression,” he said.

A video of Shatta Wale was posted online in which the artist is seen firing gunshots while mentioning the names of top Nigerians artistes Wizkid, Patoranking, and Timaya.

Entertainment Critics say his unfortunate action could spark unnecessary tension between Ghanaian and Nigerian artistes and in the process, mar the unity that has existed between musicians from the two West Africa countries.

Speaking on Accra-based Starr FM Bola Ray revealed that he personally called up Shatta Wale and rebuked him for his action.

“I called him up on Saturday and I had some strong words for him. Together with Kwami Sefa Kayi for 30 minutes, we were on the phone with him and I think that is so bad, uncalled for, uncultured and I condemn it. Yes, he says he’s going to apologize and I’m waiting for him to do that. I don’t mince words and I’m saying it for the first time on radio that, I did that. I didn’t mince words at all and I think that from how he came about, he was remorseful about it and says he was just…but I won’t go into details.”

Kwami Sefa Kayi and Bola Ray and are two great media personalities who Shatta Wale has immense respect for, and this is not the first time the duo have publicly condemned and advised him.
