The president of the republic of Ghana has finally reacted to the monumental feat of dacehall act Shatta Wale; being featured in Ace Musician Beyonce’s “Already” music video.
Manager for Shatta Wale, Bulldog had expressed disappointment at the president’s lack of acknowledgement for Shatta’s achievement. In an interview Bulldog stated, “We have placed Ghana on the map by being part of the King Already track, the least we could get is an appreciation for putting Ghana ahead of other countries in the music industry” It is not easy to get such a feature.
Shortly after bulldogs’ comment, the statement went viral online and President Akuffo Addo reacted to the comment on his twitter page “@shattawalegh, you do all!!! #KingAlready #BlackIsKing.”

This comes as a surprise to the management of Shatta for the generosity of the president.
People have also taken to social media celebrating and congratulating the dancehall King as the President did.
The dancehall King himself has responded, saying “Thank you Mr President King dey rule dem longer eii #KingAlready”

Some propagandists have also jumped on the assertion that, the President’s tweet is all a strategy to pull crowd for himself and prey on Shatta’s brand to get more votes in the coming election.
