Dancehall artiste Shatta Wale is set to release a new song titled “Ghana be village” days after he received severe criticisms for using the said phrase during a performance in the UK.
Over a week ago, the SM boss sparked controversy after referring to Ghana as “a village” during his performance at Indigo, 02 in London.
Whiles performing his numerous hit songs, the artiste paused and told his fans to disregard any negatives news about him on the internet which emanates from Ghana.
He went further by ordering the fans to repeat after him that “Ghana is a village”, to which they duly obliged.
“Shatta Wale is a very nice guy, all that you read on Google from Ghana [are not true]. Ghana is village, say ‘Ghana is a village’, say ‘village’,” he said, as the fans repeated after him.
Though it turned out to be sold out concert, Shatta Wale’s comments did not enthuse many Ghanaians back home.
