Multiple-award winning dancehall artiste, Charles Nii Armah Mensah aka Shatta Wale has disclosed that Former President Mahama has refused to pick his calls ever since he lost the 2016 general elections to Akufo-Addo.
Shatta Wale says he has pleaded with many top officials of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), to urge John Mahama to consider answering his calls, but the situation remains the same.
The dancehall king in an interview with Kasapa FM in Accra, revealed that he is unable to figure out what went wrong between him and the ex-president.
“I’ve been calling ex-president Mahama after the elections and he hasn’t been answering. I don’t know the reason why but I believe is because they are busy putting things in place after their loss” Shatta Wale said.
President Mahama and the then ruling NDC adopted Shatta Wales’s ‘Mahama Paper’ as their official campaign song for the 2016 election.
Some top party members including the Second Lady were spotted several times during their campaign rally, jamming to the popular song at the time.
However, it appears the ‘romance’ between the dancehall artiste, and the opposition party members is over.
The controversial musician who has also been a personal friend of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) leader, Nana Akufo-Addo recently paid a courtesy call on him at the presidency eleven months after winning the elections.
Shatta Wales’s visit to the Flagstaff House followed President Akufo-Addo's tweet in Pidgin English to wish the musician happy birthday and subsequently invite him for a visit.
President Akufo-Addo also presented to the dancehall artiste a gift of Ghana’s Coat of Arms after his visit.
