Entertainment of Thursday, 21 June 2018
Contrary to reports that President Nana Akufo-Addo has unfollowed dancehall musician, Shatta Wale on Twitter, checks by TV3 Entertainment shows that the news is fake.
President Akufo-Addo is still following the musician on the social media platform – Twitter.
The musician on Tuesday posted a video of a woman playing a sexual act on two men, one of whom is alleged to be Shatta Wale.
The obscenity has been widely condemned by the public with some calling for the musician to be stripped off his ambassadorial contracts.
Others want his contract with Zylofon media terminated in order to discipline the singer.
Interestingly, the news made rounds Thursday morning that the president has unfollowed Shatta Wale to signal his utter disgust at the indecent behaviour exhibited by the musician.
In October 2017, Shatta Wale was invited to the presidency, making him the first artiste to enjoy a presidential invite in Akufo-Addo’s first year in office.
Meanwhile, the Shatta Wale has apologised for the posting of the obscene video which he claimed was uploaded by Snapchat.
Given his huge influence on the youth, many expect the singer, a role model to millions, to set a good example for others to emulate.
But the question is, will the president’s unfollowing him necessarily stop him from repeating the bad behaviour in the future?
