Madam Elsie Evelyn Avemegah, mother of Ghanaian dancehall artiste Shatta Wale, has revealed that her son was named at a disco in Accra.

According to her, her son has been blessed with the talent for music from infancy.

“No one should joke with Shatta, it was a deadly time for me giving birth to Shatta. I didn’t get it easy so you people should stop all those unnecessary criticisms.

“Shatta has passed through the hands of prominent people. Do you know who held him during his outdooring, go and ask Gloria Akuffo. Do you know where his outdooring was held? Once upon a time there was a disco at Asylum Down called Cleopatra Disco. That was where that boy, Shatta Wale, was outdoored. Gloria Akuffo was the one who was holding Shatta Wale before he was named,” She revealed in a Facebook live video.

Madam Elsie who seemed enraged by certain prophecies that his son will die indicated that her God will fight for her and her son.

Shatta Wale had earlier told Moro Awudu on Class FM’s Executive Breakfast Show (EBS) on Monday, 12 February 2018 that he does not believe in doomsday prophets and that he will soon release a song about fake prophets in the country.

For him, he does not understand why prophets do not see any good prophecies but claim to see only issues concerning death and calamities.

A Ghanaian pastor identified as Prophet Agyei Fredua Agyeman predicted the death of Shatta Wale urging Ghanaians to pray for the singer as he sees another national mourning and a tragic end of the popular singer.

Prophet-Cosmos Walker Affran wrote on his Facebook page:

“Ghana should pray, I see a national mourning again the whole nation was in tears and this time it's Ghanaian singer “Shatta Wale”, and it is very close “death”. ” Thus saith the Lord.”

However, Shatta has said that he will burn the church of any pastor, who has made any negative declarations if he is still alive by December, 2018.

According to Madam Elsie she will visit the Volta region over the matter.

“What is this death, death matter? I’m going to the Volta region because of my son, I’m an Anlo,” She explained.

“The way it happened in the Bible when Bal and his followers displayed and the Israelites also displayed, I’m [also] going to the Volta region to display my culture over there. I want to tell you people that if I’m in the Volta, my son will be there too and you’ll see what will happen because if there is God that has given me this son” people should not antagonise him like this.

She continued: “I will deal with the people and I know my God is going to fight for me. If the god of Bal existed and worked for them, I will also follow the Israelites and we will see what will happen”.
