Shatta Wale Is A Star, Not A Gangster – Hassan Ayariga

The 2016 presidential candidate of the All People’s Congress (APC), Hassan Ayariga says Shatta Wale is a star, not a gangster.

This notwithstanding, the politician and business tycoon further expressed his disappointment with the dancehall artiste over his behavior in recent times.

Mr. Ayariga made a reference to a video that recently went viral on social media in which the ‘Taking Over’ crooner was seen holding a gun and firing into the air.

According to him, Shatta Wale ought to know that he is an artiste and not a gangster.

Speaking as a co-host on Drive Time on Joy FM on Boxing Day, the APC founder said “…my movement, Shatta Movement is doing well. The sad thing, recently he started [doing] something I don’t like but then, he is very good.”

Hassan Ayariga’s Speech

Condemning Shatta’s behavior, he said, “Stars are supposed to brag…but not to the extent of using weapons…you are not a gangster, you are a pop star so don’t put yourself into that category.”

“It [affects] the respect and the fame you have… people love you so continue that way and then you will go far beyond your imagination…my advice to him,” Mr Ayariga added.

Nevertheless, Hassan Ayariga said, “I love him. He is a young boy and I love his music.”

When asked by Baaba Tandoh, who was the sit-in host of the show if he will invite him to the Flagstaff House should he become president, the APC leader said there won’t be any need for that.

“He was invited already so there is no need,” he said and added that, “I think that we need to promote them rather than inviting them. When you promote them, they excel. Inviting them to the Flagstaff House without promoting them is nothing…”
