Multiple-award winning dancehall act, Charles Nii Armah Mensah, popularly known as Shatta Wale has opened up on his surprise stage proposal to his longtime girlfriend, Michy, known in real life as Diamond Michelle Gbagonah.
Speaking in an interview with Accra-based Joy FM and monitored by YEN.com.gh, the 'Dem Confuse' singer made it clear that his proposal to Michy was not staged but was real.
He indicated that he spoke with his internal team about his plan to propose to Michy and they worked to make it happen.
Shatta Wale revealed that he was going to walk Michy down the aisle nest year, 2019 but did not mention the month in which he was going to get married to Michy.
According to him, Michy had stood by his side for a long time and he felt the day of the launch of the 'Reign' album was the right time to ask her to marry him.
In reacting to claims that the proposal was fake, Shatta Wale said he had not heard any of those rumors but was sure his wedding was going to be big to make Michy proud of him.
The Zylofon Media artiste went on to make a sarcastic comment that he was not going to be shocked if Ghanaians gave him pressure to kill Michy once they were married.
He added that people should stop giving him pressure to get married because marriage was not a "bank account".
Not too long ago, YEN.com.gh reported that the Communications Manager of Zylofon Music, Arnold Asamoah-Baidoo, revealed that everything including Shatta Wale’s proposal to Shatta Michy at the launch of the ‘Reign’ album on October 13, 2018, was scripted.
According to him, Shatta Wale’s public proposal to Michy was not a surprise to the team because “had been scripted.”
“Everything was scripted as far as I know, everything is scripted and so if there was a proposal, of course, there is some scripting by part of the SM team. I am not sure Michy was aware, there will be a proposal,” Arnold reportedly added.
Meanwhile, in an earlier report by YEN.com.gh, Michy said she was shocked Shatta Wale proposed to her on stage because she was not expecting it.
According to her, she was carried away, however, she is happy because it was something she had been expecting of him for the past years.
