The self-acclaimed king of Dancehall, Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jnr better known as Shatta Wale, has described President Nana Akufo-Addo as his favorite blogger.
Shatta Wale who received quite the impressive birthday wish in pidgin from the president's Twitter account has gained more popularity, now that it looks like he gets the nod of approval from the first gentleman of the land.
The tweet that went viral almost instantly, became a topic of discussion across various social media platforms, with the public divided into two factions; those were were thrilled by the president’s tweet and those who found it inappropriate.
President Akufo-Addo himself found the tweet’s popularity surprising, using it as an example of the power of the internet.
It is with this notion, that perhaps Shatta Wale figured, President Akufo-Addo thought him to be the Ghanaian celebrity that is ruling the social media scene.
In a Facebook post on Tuesday, the Shatta Movement overlord stated: “HIS EXCELLENCY NANA AKUFO ADDO IS MY FAVORITE BLOGGER..HE SAID SHATTA DEH RUN DA INTERNET(CYBER) BETTER AND POSITIVELY..”
The dancehall king also spent his birthday celebrating with his fan base on the streets of Nima, where he interacted with and gave out gifts to some of his followers.
