Dancehall sensation Shatta Wale says Ghanaians simply misquoted him when he asked for cash donations via social media after he met his bail conditions by a court of Accra circuit.
The loud singer took to Facebook to appeal to his followers’ emotions, asking them to send him money immediately.
The message posted on June 29, 2022 read in part: “If you know you love me momo 2k now!!!”
According to him, the reason for the request was not specified, however, supporters assumed it was to satisfy his bail condition. “But it wasn’t for my bail,” he said in an interview with Abeiku Santana on Okay FM.
Shatta, in the interview monitored by Angelonline.com.gh, claimed that the said post was unintentional, but the sums of money transferred to his Mobile Money (MoMo) account were overwhelming.
He said that while engaged by the host, his fans still send him money. “I got over 20,000 GHC from them,” he revealed.
This, according to the “On God” singer, suggested that his fans genuinely loved him and were happy to see him enjoying his newfound freedom after his arrest and subsequent detention for publishing false news.
Meanwhile, Shatta in his communication did not know how to use the money. On the one hand, he wishes to donate the sum to charities in the company of the fans. However, as a second thought, he wants to help a needy fan start a business with the money.
Amid the uncertainties, the dancehall entertainer has announced that he will soon be engaging fans in a live virtual reunion via Facebook, Twitter or any other social media platform. The purpose of the meeting is to exchange ideas on how to use the money.
