Charles Mensah, the Ghanaian musician better known as Shatta Wale, has finally reacted to reports that he was shot.
On Monday, the internet was awash with reports that the musician was shot at East Legon in Ghana.
The Ghana Police Service (GPS) thereafter announced that it had launched an investigation into the “alleged gunshot attack”.
But in a lengthy post via his Facebook page on Tuesday, the music star confirmed the development, saying that his “life is in danger”.
Shatta Wale added that he is currently “on the run.”
He also called out the country’s police for not arresting a self-acclaimed prophet, who earlier declared that he would be shot on October 18.
In the post, Shatta Wale vowed to “fight this fight alone and get it done” while accusing the country of failing its citizens.
“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,” he wrote.
“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 you cyber crime department nor did you 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 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 am 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…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 through stress.”
The singer also slammed pastors who he said would go any length to ensure their prophecies are fulfilled so their followers could believe in them.
“Pastors always say things and later plan evil to it, so that me and you will believe they are powerful men of God,” he added.
“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 because I’m tired of the negativity in this country.”
