Ghana's Minister for Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, has congratulated dancehall star Shatta Wale on his remarkable feat of linking up with American star Beyonce on the Already project.
In a post sighted by YEN.com.gh, Mr Oppong Nkrumah took to his official Twitter handle to commend Shatta Wale after American singer, Beyonce released visuals of their ‘Already’ song.
The Information Minister indicated that the Shatta Movement boss by that singular feat had managed to make Ghana very proud.
Oppong Nkrumah, after sharing the viral photo of Shatta Wale and Beyonce which was released after the Already video dropped, captioned it:
“Congratulations @shattawalegh. You’ve made Ghana proud."
Many Ghanaian music fans and top Ghanaian musicians like Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, Medikal. Sonnie Badu, Kwaw Kese and others have also applauded Shatta Wale following the release of the video.
The ‘Already’ music video has attracted more than 2 million views on YouTube less than 24 hours of its release
This is not the first time a top government official has weighed in on something related to the Ayoo hitmaker.
It would be remembered that in 2017, President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo also took to Twitter to wish Shatta Wale a happy birthday in pidgin English.
The viral tweet also sent an invitation to the Shatta Movement leader to visit the presidential palace.
President Akufo-Addo tweeted: "Happy birthday @shattawalegh! You for come visit me for Flagstaff House o!".
All of these messages are a result of an earlier publication made by YEN.com.gh to the effect that the long-awaited Already video which features Ghana’s very own Shatta Wale had finally been released by multiple award-winning singer Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter known simply as Beyoncé.
The video which is exactly how it was anticipated is actually not so close to the video that was leaked weeks ago.
Surprisingly some parts of the video appear to have been shot in Ghana as a goat market and a ‘kiosk’ bearing the popular ‘A.M.A’ warning were seen in the video.
