The ‘taking over’ hitmaker speaking on Accra-based Kasapa FM, fired shot at some of his desperate colleagues saying it looks as if the president doesn’t have any work to do.

“That’s so dumb… Don’t see the President as someone who has nothing doing. Maybe he had time for me so don’t put that pressure on him that he should also invite you. You’re nobody to the president and I’m also nobody to the president,” Shatta said in an interview.
He further disclosed that the official arrangement to meet the president was well documented and executed by the Chief Executive of EIB Group, Nathan Kwabena Adisi aka Bola Ray.
“Recently the president was under the public critics for replying to my message in pidgin language but to me, nothing was wrong with that. The day the president replied my tweet on my birthday, I was really surprised, I said to myself that wow this man is really good and knows what he’s about”, he said.
He added that “I quickly called Bola Ray to help me with the documentation to visit the Flagstaff House. I told Bola that this is too big because I’m not good with documentation. God, being so good we visited H.E. Nana Addo.
The president on the 17th October tweeted Shatta Wale and wished him a happy birthday and also presented a gift to him when he visited him at Flagstaff house.
