The President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, on Tuesday night took to Twitter to wish popular dancehall act, Shatta Wale a happy birthday in pidgin English.
The viral tweet also sent an invitation to the Shatta Movement leader to visit the seat of government.
President Akufo-Addo tweeted:
Shatta had last Friday tweeted at the President to inquire about which gift he will be receiving on his birthday.
Although the President’s tweet did not directly respond to Shatta’s request, a trip to the Flagstaff House may just be an ideal gift for the controversial musician.
President Akufo-Addo, whilst leading the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in opposition in 2016, revealed that he is a big fan of Shatta Wale.
His party, the NPP also used one of the artiste’s hit songs “Kakai” at their manifesto launch that year.
However, the artiste had earlier served notice that he will not endorse any political party ahead of that year’s general elections in December.
Many Ghanaian celebrities including Flowking of Bradez fame and BET award winner, Stonebwoy have also shared photos of Shatta Wale with lovely happy birthday captions.
You take away all the other luxuries in life, and if you can make someone smile and laugh, you have given the most special gift: happiness.Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared. Happy Bday Shatta wale(shatta movement) Charles Nii Armah Mensah
