Shatta Movement fans and lovers of Africa’s dancehall king Shatta Wale have launched what they call a ‘State Reward For Shatta’ campaign to call on government to honor the musician for his success this year.
This campaign comes after few days of releasing the official video of the ‘Already’ song which had Beyoncé featuring the multiple award winning dancehall artiste Shatta Wale and Major Lazer.
The fans believe that Shatta Wale has achieved a great success with his feature which has put the name of the country on many lips in the world making him promote the country better than some appointed ambassadors. According to them, he deserves a special reward for this achievement and hopes that the president, H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo rewards the dancehall artiste.
Shatta Wale also tweeted: “Just came here and I’m seeing #StateReward4Shatta from my fans, Eii this my empire lol I love y’all Face with tears of joy”.
Below are some views and comments from some of these fans on social media:
