Shatta Wale, Samini and many other top music acts in Ghana have been in the news predominantly for their musical abilities and talents.
It goes without saying that these artistes are recognized and acknowledged both in Ghana and other parts of the world for their hit songs.
In a recent development, a photo of an end of term examination paper has started going viral on social media because some of the questions were related to some award-winning Ghanaian musicians.
A Music and Dance Studies teacher of the Kwaku Duah Preparatory set questions on Shatta Wale, Yaa Pono and other Ghanaian musicians.
Even though there were a few questions related to the traditional music culture in Ghana, the questions on the musicians attracted more attention.
The ‘interesting’ questions bothered on the composers of songs and the slogans of other artistes. Since the photo was first spotted, many people have questioned the education system and the quality of teaching in schools in Ghana.
Many social media users however took offence with a question relating to Shatta Wale. The question was a direct reference to the “Taking Over” hit maker over a diss he was engaged in with Yaa Pono.
In the song made by Yaa Pono, he referred to Shatta Wale as “Gbee Nabu”; a name Shatta Wale did not take kindly to.
The exam questions have however gone viral on social media and many people are questioning the relevance of some of the questions set in the end of term examinations.
There was a similar occurrence not long ago when some stars in a popular Indian series, “Kumkum Bhagya”, featured in an examination in a Ghanaian school.
