On Wednesday, June 30, 2021, YEN.com.gh reported Wale had joined the many voices discussing the Ejura unrests and clashes.

In a Facebook post, Shatta Wale indicated that it was not right for people to go out and fight and end up in prison just because the masses were calling for it.

He said instead of clamouring for the country to be fixed, citizens should rather ask Ghanaian leaders to do better because the upheavals can only be disastrous for the entire nation.
