On Monday night, many dancehall lovers were asking the whereabouts of popular musician, Shatta Wale after news of his alleged gun attack surfaced on many social media platforms.
According to news circulating, the dancehall artiste explained why he had to fake his gun attack.
This is what he had to say.
This is what I have to say
Psychological, or emotional trauma, is damage or injury to the psyche after living through an extremely frightening or distressing event and may result in challenges in functioning or coping normally after the event.
The statement made by this false prophet has gotten me in a mood of violence since no one in this country cares.
So the police of this country want to tell me none of them saw those threatening statement online to take Action?
This pastor said 18th October Shatta Wale will be shot and you want to tell me you didn’t see from your cyber crime department nor did u hear or came across anything like that online?
I won’t wait for Ghana police to call my father and tell my father, his son got shot this afternoon, I won’t wait for Ghana stupid media houses to spread news to my fans about me being because all we wish in this country is for dead people and funerals.
If my life can be threatened and there is no law to take actions on that then I guess I will do what is right in the eyes of God.
This is not the first time I have had these threats in this country am now I am going these emotional trauma alone,
My dad has even defended me on radio on this same issue. Why? Why? Ghana? Why?
Yes, my life is in Danger and am on the run till this country shows me there are LAWS..
Deportee am sorry for taking your phone
Dope sorry for taking your phone
To my fans am sorry but I will have to fight this fight alone and get it done ..
To my Dad I say sorry for putting you thru stress
PASTORS ALWAYS SAY THINGS AND LATER PLAN EVIL TO IT, SO THAT ME AND YOU WILL BELIEVE THEY ARE POWERFUL MEN OF GOD ..
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
THE YOUTH OF THESE COUNTRY ARE TIRED OF RELIGIOUSNESS, WE KNOW GOD ALREADY AND THAT IS THAT.
IF THIS WILL MAKE ME STOP MUSIC LIKE HOW MANY WANT ME TO STOP,
THEN SO BE IT
CUZ I AM TIRED OF THE NEGATIVITY IN THIS COUNTRY.
SON OF GHANA
Whiles many may not like the idea of the feigned gun attack, others reacted to his statement on social media.
One user on twitter (gyae_me) tweeted :Instead of Shatta Wale being defensive, he should just apologize for pulling that stunt. If he doesn’t know, he should ask the boy who cried wolf.
Another tweep (KojoWud_) had his say on the issue: Shatta Wale is right about one thing tho’ we give unnecessary attention to these prophets. Because it’s a prophet, there’s no harm with the revelation. It’s abt time the police question prophets who come out with such prophecy.
As the news keep trending, videos of the said man of God Bishop Stephen Akwesi (aka Jesus Ahuofe) speaking on Accra based station Accra 100.5 about the prophecy has surfaced online. So far, there is no news from the camp of the man of God to debunk the prophecies claiming a dance hall artiste will be shot like a reggae artiste was shot dead in South Africa 18th October 2007.
