- The poll asked social media users to vote for their choice of president if Shatta Wale and Nana Akufo-Addo were contesting
- The poll emanated from a comment made by Bulldog claiming that Shatta Wale is more popular than President Akufo-Addo
Ghanaians on Facebook have chosen dancehall musician Shatta Wale over President Nana Akufo-Addo in a poll.
The social media users were asked to chose between Shatta Wale and Nana Akufo-Addo as their choice for Ghana's top job.
In a rather surprising result, Shatta Wale garnered 57% of the total votes while Nana Akufo-Addo had 43% of total votes.
It is a wonder for many to see the dancehall musician being selected for president over Ghana's current president.
However, some Facebook users made comments to floor Shatta Wale's win over President Nana Akufo-Addo.
They claimed that the Shatta Movement boss won because he is more popular on social media than the president.
Others were of the view that popularity does not transcend into good leadership so Shatta Wale may be popular but cannot be a good president.
The poll followed a comment made by Bulldog, member of Shatta Movement management team concerning the two personalities.
According to Bulldog, Shatta Wale is bigger than Akufo-Addo hence, should Shatta Wale contest for the 2020 elections, he would win over Akufo-Addo, Ghana's current leader.
The claim made by Bulldog attracted a lot of opinions with some supporting the claim while others thought it impossible.
Meanwhile, Shatta Wale is currently in the news after getting a contract request from top beer brand Budweiser.
In a tweet, Budweiser heaped praise on Shatta Wale and asked him to collaborate with them on a project.
