Shatta Wale turns up heat on Akufo-Addo over Menzgold brouhaha

Dancehall artiste Shatta Wale has waded into the escalating controversy between Menzgold and the Bank of Ghana (BoG) over the former’s license.

In a series of tweet Saturday, Shatta Wale has praised his boss, Nana Appiah Mensah , owner of Menzgold and Zylofon music, for showing “love” despite his tussle with the BoG. (Shatta Wale is one of many Ghanaian artistes signed by Zylofon music.)

He said through Appiah Mensah, Zylofon has touched many lives which fits into President Nana Akufo-Addo’s campaign promise of change.

In another tweet, he suggested that the action of the BoG if left unchecked, could ruin the fortune of his boss which could affect the future dream of “our arts and culture.”

In essence, the musician is calling on the president to intervene or glossy over the banking rules, the very reason seven banks have collapsed.

He said: “Since the History of Ghana music no man can boldly say he has had love like nana Appiah mensah..Mr president thru your government this man came up !! Please don’t let Ghana down with this change Zylofon has brought in your own campaign agenda which was ‘CHANGE.'”

Nana Appiah has paid his dues in this country ,He didn’t just pop up.Laws yes ,But Mr president I know the youth of Ghana is your main target just for us to remember you one day ..Please if your governance will end the future dream of our arts and culture then ago shock waa!!

Don’t tell me about Laws because these laws have been there but never worked for Gh musicians until Nana Appiah Mensah stepped in showed some of us the way..Please Mr President do something about it for us who still have hope in your governance !!! I salute !!

 

Shatta Wale is not the only musician who has backed Menzgold and Nana Appiah Mensah.

Kasoa-based artiste Akoo Nana, in vidoe on Instagram warned the president he may lose the 2020 election if he does not stop the BoG from tarnishing the image of Menzgold.

“Anything Ghanaian, we don’t want to support it. Bank of Ghana, what is your problem? You said Menzgold has no license, meanwhile they do. Why are we like that?” he queried.

And further asked the president to “step into this thing because you gave us your word that you’ll make Ghana attractive to investors but look at what is happening. Please stop these people… If they don’t stop this, we won’t vote for NPP in 2020. You know the work we did for NPP to come to power.
