An American woman, Vicky Dempsey Burns, who was featured by Shatta Wale in his Gringo music video, has opened up on how the Ghanaian artiste has made her popular in some part of the United States.
According to Vicky, many people now recognize her and some other colleagues who appeared in the music video when they go to the grocery shop.
Speaking in a Facebook comment, the woman believed to be in her earlier 40s couldn’t hide her joy over her new stardom status bestowed on her by Shatta Wale.
The Texas-based woman in further comments expressed her gratitude to Ghana’s dancehall king for making her long dream come to pass with the Gringo music video.
“You won’t believe this, but from being in the Shatta Wale video “Gringo,” which has over 900,000 views on YouTube, I have fans now! They made the sweetest comments. I took a lesson from John Johnny Mach Maciag and thanked every one of them,” Vicky posted.
She also added that many of her friends from other States have recognized her in the music video and call on her on a daily bass.
"A teacher friend just told me Some of my students showed me the video in class the other day. They said I think this video has our sub in it. Other people in the video have told me they are recognized when they go to the grocery store. Lol Crazy fun! Rumor is that Shatta Wale is going to make a feature film in Texas,” she added.
Vicky Dempsey Burns also maintained that she will not hesitate to jump on Shatta Wale’s future project in Texas when invited by organizers.
