-Dancehall musician, Charles Nii Armah Mensah has lambasted pastors over their recent utterances
-The musician asked Ghanaians to name and shame such ‘dubious’ Men of God
Multiple award-winning dancehall act and latest Zylofon Media signee, Charles Nii Armah Mensah, popularly known as Shatta Wale, has said that some pastors are criminals and needed to be exposed.
Speaking in a self-recorded video which was uploaded on his Facebook account, the “Taking Over” hitmaker bemoaned the rate at which religious people were using ‘dubious’ means to make money off church members.
He advised Ghanaians to be good citizens by coming out to name pastors who had taken their church members for granted by swindling them.
He revealed that God was going to bless the people who came out to mention the names of ‘dubious’ men of God in the country.
Shatta Wale said that it was rather unfortunate that anyone who spoke against a church for sometimes making excessive noise was branded as a witch, wizard or enemy of progress.
He said that some of the pastors did and said whatever they wanted because the government exempted them from paying taxes like other hardworking Ghanaians.

The “Taking Over” singer said the biggest criminals in the country currently were pastors because of some of the ‘evil’ things they were doing in the country.
Shatta Wale revealed that the separation between his parents was caused by a pastor, stating that it was not his will to become a ‘street child’ but his fate was decided by a pastor.
He said many pastors have used God’s name to dupe many of their church members and followers.
He urged Christians to come out and expose such pastors who had enriched themselves out of lies.
On Valentine’s Day, the musician was captured in a video praying to God with the crew and cast of TV series, Kejetia Vs Makola.
Some people have speculated that the prayers were to avert some ‘prophecies’ that have come from some men of God concerning the life of the musician.
