British High Commissioner to Ghana, Jon Benjamin, on Wednesday met dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale.


Shatta Wale met with Mr Benjamin at the British High Commission in Accra.


In photos shared online after the meeting, Shatta Wale could be seen presenting a CD of his album to Mr Benjamin.


The award-winning musician also presented him with a ‘Shatta Movement’ shirt.

The UK Embassy tweeted that Shatta Wale had called on the British High Commissioner to share his plans of engaging the youth in peaceful elections in November and beyond .


Mr Benjamin also tweeted that he had given Shatta Wale tips on how to perfect the Shatta Movement sign.


Mr Benjamin has attended a number of events aimed at promoting the arts in Ghana, and has expressed his love for musician Wiyaala’s music and her stagecraft in the past.

It’s safe to say that the 49-year-old, who is also UK Ambassador to Togo, Benin and Burkina Faso, is the latest Shatta Movement recruit.
