Charles Nii-Armah Mensah; Ghanaian born reggae & dancehall artiste popularly known as Shatta Wale has expressed dissatisfaction in some political foot soldiers and figures of the governing New Patriotic Party – NPP for using his brand for their political gains.
Disassociating himself from the photoshopped image which conveyed the message “Let us give Nana Addo four more years to more for you and me. My vote is for the president. He is number one on the ballot paper”, Shatta Wale urged political fanatics and big wigs to desist from dragging his image into matters of politics.
He tweeted, “Stop dragging me into matters of politics when I haven’t said anything. I see prominent people in our country posting photoshop statements about me which is not true. Please stop it cuz I hate it !!!”
