Shatta Wale has finally spoken after his alleged shooting incident went viral.
Apparently, the musician has not been shot and had been faking this.
In a new statement he released and sighted by YEN.com.gh, Shata Wale indicated that nobody has shot him, however, he decided to pull that stunt to awaken the Ghana Police and others.
He explained that he has been traumatised many times with prophecies of him being shot and killed by gunmen.

Shatta Wale expressed his disappointment in the police for turning a deaf ear to those prophecies and wanting to “call his father and say your son was shot dead”.
To Shatta Wale, this is the best way he could start a campaign to "stop false prophecies"
The statement added that Shatta Wale is currently on the run for his life following the prophecies.
Shatta Wale's statement comes on the back of a release from the Ghana Police that they were investigating it.

The statement has received mixed reactions from the public.
Some have completely rubbished his explanation and said his behaviour is no different from the infamous fake Takoradi pregnancy saga.
They have described it as "emotional blackmail" in order to avoid being prosecuted.
Others, however, supported Shatta Wale's explanation and threw their weight behind him.

Alleged shooting story
Shatta Wale stood the whole of Ghana up with his shooting report.
He was reported to have been shot by some unknown gunmen at his East Legon mansion on Monday, October 18, 2021, just a day after celebrating his birthday.
This has been confirmed by his spokesperson, Nana Dope.

Meanwhile, Bishop Stephen Akwasi, known popularly as Jesus Ahuofe had predicted earlier that Shatta Wale would be shot.
In the video published by YEN.com.gh, the bishop mentioned that Shatta Wale would be shot Monday, October 18, 2021, and that would lead to his death.
Perhaps, he pulled this stunt to 'fool' the pastor a well.
