Dancehall artiste Shatta Wale says his life is in danger and he is on the run until the country shows him that there are laws.
Shatta Wale said this in a Facebook post to break his silence after rumours went viral that he had been shot by some unknown gunmen on Monday, 18 October 2021.
Earlier, a prophet had prophesied that the controversial artiste would be gunned down on the said date.
Following rumour of his disappearance, the Ghana Police Service issued a statement saying it is investigating a claim that the Gringo hitmaker had been shot.
In a statement issued late Monday night, the police said on hearing the news, it â€œlaunched an investigation into the matterâ€ by making contact with some of â€œhis close friends and family members and all of them claim not to have knowledge of his whereabouts or the alleged incidentâ€.
â€œA team has visited the house of Shatta Wale and he cannot be found thereâ€, the police noted.
â€œOver the last few hours, the police has searched and continue to look for Shatta Wale at hospitals in Accraâ€, the statement revealed.
It added: â€œWhile we continue our investigations, the police is appealing to the public to provide any information concerning the whereabouts of Shatta Wale to the numbers 18555, 191 and 0302773906â€.
Shatta Waleâ€™s road manager, Nana Dope, had claimed his boss was ambushed by some unknown gunmen in East Legon but the dancehall artiste managed to escape amidst gunshot wounds.
Reacting to the Police statement, Shatta Wale quizzed why the Police did nothing when the prophecy threatening his life went viral in the news media.
His post read:
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 didnâ€™t see from your cybercrime department nor did u hear or came across anything like that online?
I wonâ€™t wait for Ghana police to call my father and tell my father, his son got shot this afternoon, I wonâ€™t wait for Ghana stupid media houses to spread news to my fans about me being shot 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 and now I am going this 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 YOUTHS 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
(SHATTA WALE )
