Being a very influential musician with a very huge following on both social media and in real life, Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jnr, known in Ghanaian showbiz as Shatta Wale, has made a passionate call on telecommunication companies in the country to reduce the cost of data and calls in this time that the country is trying to fight Covid-19.
The controversial dancehall artiste made this appeal while speaking to Christian Agyei Frimpong on Accra-based Onua 95.1 FM.
“It’s time to show love, market women have increased the cost of foodstuffs, this is the time people should understand we need each other to move on,”Shatta Wale said.
“Telecommunication companies in Ghana with higher tariffs must reduce their tariffs because all the monies that will come out of my Faith Concert are going into my charity projects. I’m just going to donate those monies and I have nothing to gain because I invested GH¢400,000 in my concert,” the dancehall artiste continued.
On Saturday night, Shatta Wale entertained his fans and all Ghanaians to a night of good music with his Faith Concert Saturday night.
It was streamed online to thousands of Ghanaians including those who have been affected by the partial lockdown.
