On Friday, October 30, 2020, the Hitz FM studio came to a stop after Shatta Wales die-hard fan who is said to have been looking for him for too long came to meet the popular musician at last. The man was identified as a commercial driver.
It is reported that the trotro driver stopped his vehicle in the middle of the road and gave an order to his conductor to refund money to the passengers and rushed to the studio hoping to meet Shatta Wale after he heard the news on the radio that the dancehall artiste was on the premises of Hitz FM in Kokomlemle.
The man had a big tattoo on his back that amazed many people capturing the attention. In the room with the interviewer Andy Dosty, the driver knelt before Shatta crying out and saying “I don’t want money… my God, oh Lord! I’ve looked for you for years. I beg you; it's not because of your money. I've seen my star, I am done. Thanks for making me meet him.”
And when Shatta Wale went ahead and asked for the driver’s contacts, the driver humbly said that it was enough for him to have just met him. The artiste was surprised and broke down in tears after being asked by the host what the driver’s actions meant to him.
Shatta Wale replied: “You know me when I cry my face is not nice. In life, I just don’t know… this is why I want to show everybody love because it's nice to love. When I see people like this doing this to me, sometimes I ask myself, who at all is Shatta Wale. I keep asking myself questions… I just want to help because people like this you should imagine where they're from and see if he's okay. See his tattoo on his back.
That’s why I pray for God to bless us so we also bless some people. I don’t want to cry plenty, don’t clean my make-up.”
Right from childhood, I just wanted to motivate and educate people and just teach them about God through music by making it fan. I didn’t have an idea of who a celebrity or star was. I was just doing music for people to dance, be happy, and learn something about life. I've been complaining to my team that I’m overwhelmed by the fan-love,” he said.
According to Shatta Wale, he never imagined that music would bring him such a big fan and his dream was just to do music for the public.
