His spokesperson Mr Koney, stated categorically that Shatta’s Mahama Paper song was not done for the NDC, and that the ‘Chop Kiss’ hitmaker, is not supporting the party
Following rumours of his endorsement of President Mahama, Shatta Wale ‘s team has come out to say that the song ‘Mahama Paper’ was neither done for President Mahama, nor the National Democratic Congress (NDC). Shatta Wale’s Public Relations Officer Chris Koney, who spoke on Starr FM, said that the ‘Ho’ Lit’ hitmaker has no affiliation to the incumbent party.
The self acclaimed dance hall king had been rumoured to have endorsed the President in the song. It can be recalled that Mahama during an interview, declared his love for the smash hit single ‘Mahama Paper’ which was released in October 2015 . He had also commended the dancehall act for his creativity.
Mahama’s endorsement of the ‘kakai’ hitmaker culminated to several reports on social media, alleging that the song was done for the NDC. More so, the rumours heightened, when big wigs of the incumbent party were seen singing along and dancing to his song, when it was played at the NDC campaign launch in Cape Coast on Sunday.
According to reports, the song practically fired up the campaign launch, as large sections of the party supporters got up on their feet on hearing the song.
However, Speaking to AJ Sarpong on Starr FM‘s The Zone, Shatta’s spokesperson explained that NDC loyalists at the campaign were only doing what usually happens when Shatta Wale’s songs are played during public events. He also pointed out that ‘Mahama Paper’ is one of the most popular songs trending in the country at the moment, and as such, would get anybody excited.
Mr Koney, stated categorically that Shatta’s Mahama Paper song, was not done for the NDC, and that the ‘Chop Kiss’ hitmaker, is not supporting the party. He said that the Shatta Movement (SM) has been on a peace campaign, aimed at promoting peace during this election period. He explained that rather than supporting any party, Shatta is more focused on preaching peace ahead of the elections.
