US-based Ghanaian lady accuses Shatta Wale of defrauding her of 223K

Dancehall sensation, Shatta Wale, is currently 'hot' after US-based Ghanaian lady accused him of scam.

According to a video report by sighted by, the lady identified as Emmanuella Ofori said the self-acclaimed dancehall king extorted $45,000 (GHC 223, 000) from her.

In the video, Emmanuella recounted her ordeal saying she wanted to marry and wanted to make it grand.

For that matter, she reached out to Shatta Wale on Facebook so that he can grace the event and perform accordingly. She added that Shatta Wale gave her his WhatsApp number so that they can further talk on the deal.

She noted that Shatta Wale asked her not to pay the money through his record label, Zylofon Media because they pay him peanuts.

And that he also needs money to buy himself out of his contract with Zylofon, therefore, she should deal directly with him.

They then became friends and then one day Shatta Wale told her, he wanted to move his bank money from United Kingdom to USA so he need some money to aid the bank transfer. From Emmanuella’s account, she fell for the scam and transferred a huge sum of $45,000 to the artist.

Fast forward, “Shatta Wale” cut ties with her and blocked her on all social media platforms.

She ended the video by playing an audio conversation she had with Shatta Wale. Truth be told, the voice note doesn’t look like the voice of Shatta Wale.
