Ghana Football Association presidential aspirant Kurt Okraku says 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 Ghana music industry.

Speaking to Angel FM, the Dreams FC owner says he plans on laying a strong foundation for Ghana football when he gets the nod to led the Association.

"I take inspiration from music, and when I listen to Shatta Wale he is exactly the kind of person I take some sought of inspiration from.

He is someone who made it from zero beginning but and once he made sure his foundations are very strong, then he took off and he is enjoying total dominance from the young man."

The football administrator last Friday, when going to file his nomination form at the GFA secretariat made an entry with Shatta Wale's track "Kill Dem Wif Prayers". 

It wasn't any different at the launching of his #GameChanger manifesto yesterday at the Auditorium of EximBank Ghana where he made his presence with the same song. 

At the event, he disclosed a 9-man campaign team to help him with the Ghana FA Presidency : "Albert Commey, Jones Abu Alhassan, Michael Osekere, Oduro Sarfo, John Ansah, Tawiah Apor, Mohammed juji Alifoe, Cliff Iddris and Samuel Aboabre."

He will be battling it out with personalities such as George Afriyie, Osei Kweku Palmer, Amanda Clinton, Nana Yaw Amponsah, George Ankamah Mensah for the top seat.
