Self acclaimed Dancehall king, Shatta Wale got social media haywire yesterday as he featured the Ashanti Regional Chairman, Chairman Wontumi of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in a new track.
The track which is titled “Zion” seeks to promote peace and unity among the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the NPP while advising the youth to refrain from being used as a tool to spearhead an act of violence.
Shatta Wale who is deemed by many as an NDC party sympathiser got mouth wagging when he stunned the people with the peaceful track which he co-wrote with the NPP party member.
The song, which was released on Friday, emphasised the need for people to appreciate little things by saying ‘Thank you’ and ‘Sorry’ when necessary.
According to the ‘Melissa’ hit maker, these gestures help to build lasting relationship and promote love among the people.
Controversy, he said was part of the job but would never fail to render an apology to the one he hurt out of his controversial comments.
Promoting the song on his Twitter handle, Shatta Wale maintained that, “our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter” and stressed the need for the people to desist from indulging in violence.
He insisted that politics was to enhance democracy and coexistence among humans, therefore in luring the citizenry to vote, the issue of fighting and violence should not be an option.
“Fight hard does not mean violence but the truth !!! Good Day,” Shatta Wale added.
Earlier, Chairman Wontumi who is known in private life as Bernard Antwi Boasiako, broke the record of Shatta Wale in the most watched person on Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana show.
He garnered more than 6k viewers while the Dancehall artistes who was believed by many to have lots of fans got about 4k watchers.
The politician who hailed himself as celebrity is believed by many to have accepted the collaboration to bring his fans and that of Shatta Movement (SM) together for greater impact.
