Shatta Wale Releases a Protest Song against Growing hardship in Ghana
Anyone who follows Shatta Wale would not be surprised at the famous artist for expressing his feelings in a direct way. But his latest tune titled “what deh go on”, may well come as a new high in his ability to voice issues that can be seen as taboos in the entertainment industry.
Unlike many artists who would steer in the middle for fear of being tagged, Shatta Wale has been using Twitter lately to express his growing restlessness against the hardships Ghanaians are facing each day. In a recent Tweet, the “I know my level” Star fearlessly told the President on his handle @NAkufoAddo that “Krom ayɛ shi” meaning there is hardship in the country among other views protesting against the situation his fans face on daily basis in the hands of the government.
In the new song Shatta Wale is heard despondently asking “what deh go on ooo Ghana, our leaders talk to we. We taya deh suffer…..we go rise up…
Although the Korle Gono Nima star can be seen as hot headed, this song may soon cement his image as a reflective and deeply empathetic singer who is much aware of the economic plight of his followers. His advice that his fans should “vote wisely” is a strong indication of his resistance against government’s failing economic policies.
