Ghanaian dancehall artiste Charles Nii Armah Mensah also known as Shatta Wale has broken his silence over an alleged gun attack on his life.
Late Monday evening (October 18, 2021), reports run wild on social media after the musician’s Personal Assistant, Nana Dope in a series of posts pressed the panic button suggesting that Shatta Wale had been shot and rushed to the emergency unit of an undisclosed hospital where he was receiving treatment.
The reports went viral causing the Ghana Police Service to release a statement. In the statement, Ghana Police Service stated it had “launched an investigation into the matter including making contacts with some of his close friends and family members” who claim “not to have knowledge of his whereabouts or the alleged incident.”
The statement further stated a team had visited the house of Shatta Wale and could not find him and have therefore mounted a search for Shatta Wale at hospitals in Accra.
Hours later, Shatta Wale in a lengthy post on Facebook revealed he was on the run since his life was in danger. He claimed responsibility for pressing the panic button with the mobile phones of his producer and team member.

“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 cybercrime 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 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 action 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 through these emotional traumas 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 THIS 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 )
