Self-acclaimed dancehall King, Shatta Wale has described as senseless with the level of pressure his fellow musicians are mounting on President Nana Addo to meet him.
According to him, his colleagues sending messages wanting to also be invited to the seat of Government makes it look as if the President has nothing really important to do.
His comment comes on the back of Stonebwoy, Samini, and other top Ghanaian artistes messages on social media platforms seeking an invitation from the president.
“That’s so dumb… Don’t see the President as someone who has nothing doing. Maybe he had time for me so don’t put that pressure on him that he should also invite you. You’re nobody to the president and I’m also nobody to the President.”
According to the maverick musician, the official arrangement to meet the President was well documented and executed by the Chief Executive Officer of Excellence In Broadcasting Network (EIB), Nathan Kwabena Adisi, popularly known as Bola Ray.
“Section of the public criticised the president for replying to my message with pidgin language but I found nothing wrong with that. The day he (President) replied to my tweet on my birthday, I was really surprised, I said to myself that wow this man is really good and knows what he’s about.
“I called my ‘daddy’ Bola Ray to help me with the documentation to visit the Flagstaff when the President called me on phone. I told Bola that this is too big because I’m an artiste so I’m not good with documentation. God is so good we visited H.E. Nana Addo. The president knows that Bola Ray is instrumental when it comes to Ghanaian music.” He spoke on Kasapa FM
He, therefore, cautioned desperate musicians to allow the President perform his responsibility to Ghanaians.
