One thing that baffles me is that , as large as the Shatta movement is ,won’t some fans feel maligned and begrudged if they think they deserve it more than the winner.
I can’t also deny the fact that , if it also goes well, it will bring more loyalty and goodwill to the Shatta Movement family as it perhaps will be the first time an artiste have bought a car for a fan.
