Charles Nii Armah Jnr, popularly known as dancehall artiste Shatta Wale, has described the beginning of his relationship with girlfriend Shatta Michy, as tough because of her family.
Michy (real name Diamond Michelle Gbagonah) comes from a well-to-do family and according to Shatta Wale, they did not approve of his interest in Michy in the beginning.
Shatta Wale revealed that they had once sent policemen after him, in a bid to scare him off but he overcame the situation and managed to convince her family of his genuine intentions.
In an interview with Kasapa FM, Shatta Wale stated: “They actually chased me with police when they heard I was a Nima boy dating their child. Imagine someone whose mother lives at a place like East Legon and gets to know that a guy from Nima is chasing their daughter. They didn’t want her to experience the ghetto life so they initially kicked against our relationship. But I always say Nima is my America, that place is my blessed land. Nobody can stop that blessing in Nima and people in Nima who are elders know there’s blessing in that area. My blessing is in Nima.”
The dancehall artiste in a separate interview a while ago, explained their relationship status; as even though they have a son together, they have not officially tied the knot.
According to the Shatta Movement overlord, the idea of weddings and the pageantry accompanying the ceremonies does not mean the marriage will always work out.
He said that he and Michy understand each other, and their family are aware of their status as well.

He further noted that they are taking things slow before they proceed with the formalities, because they each have items they want crossed off their checklist, before they decide to get married.
“Shatta Michy has a lot of things to do, she wants to finish her degree course, she wants to do business on her own and other things. Me too, I want to really get more into my real estate business,” he added.
Shatta Wale recently shot up in the ranks of influential celebrities in Ghana, after President Akufo-Addo named him "King of Dancehall music" in a birthday message.
