- Shatta Wale had told his many fans at London that Ghana is a village
- He said the lack of social amenities like hospitals, poor roads, and others are what make Ghana a village
- Shatta Wale is currently in the United Kingdom embarking on a tour for his ‘Reign’ album
Shatta Wale surprised and angered many Ghanaians on social media with a wild comment he made about the country.
The self-acclaimed dancehall king had told his audience in London at a show that Ghana is a village.
His comment did not go well with a section of Ghanaians who took to social media to blast him.
However, in a post he made on twitter and sighted by YEN.com.gh, Shatta Wale has explained why he made that comment.
According to him, Ghana lacks many basic amenities and social interventions including hospital beds, ambulances, and also poor roads.
He added that the ordinary citizens have been ignored by the government, however, when government officials are sick, they fly out of the country to seek medical help in advanced countries.
This and many other reasons, Shatta Wale said, make Ghana a village.
The ‘Taking Over’ hitmaker stressed that he was not going to retract his “Ghana is a village statement” until there is a change.
He wrote: “I’ll continue to #GhanaIsAVillage until I start seeing change .., yes I craze .. Wetin better ,country wey hospitals no get bed, Roads all spoil,if leader sick either dem fly out or chopper picks them during accidents ,where the ambulances Dey .. We Dey Village stop the nonsense."
Meanwhile, Shatta Wale is currently in London to promote his ‘Reign’ album.
He was said to be hosted at BBC for an interview but ended up embarrassing himself when it was time for him to deliver a freestyle.
His London tour has so far recorded massive success, as Shatta Wale was able to fill the venue of his show.
Also, an earlier report by YEN.com.gh showed how Manchester United’s Paul Pogba’s borther, Mathias Pogba, stormed the 02 Arena in London.
During his Ghana version of the ‘Reign’ album concert, Shatta Wale proposed to his long-time girlfriend, Shatta Michy on stage.
