Self-acclaimed dancehall king, Charles Nii Armah Mensah, wildly known as Shatta Wale, has thrown shades at Chatter House, following the president’s directive that all public gatherings be suspended in wake of the coronavirus cases detected in Ghana.
Charterhouse has slated the 2020 Vodafone Music Awards for 2nd May, but before the main event, there are lined up activities in April geared towards the main event.
Following the ban on all public gatherings, it is obvious that activities planned for the VGMA’s may not come to pass and this seems to have made Shatta Wale very happy.
The ‘Gringo’ crooner took to his twitter page to share his excitement at the ban.
He said, “Man wan show power but see how God show power .. You Ban Shatta wale God will Ban You too Too many sinners want to fight the righteous and that can’t happen under the sun ..Praise the Lord !! Ade believe say that day go come!!”
President Akufo-Addo has banned all public gatherings including conference, workshops, funerals, festivals, political rallies and church activities and related events as part of measures to stop the spread of coronavirus in the country.
The President in a national address on Sunday said the ban will be in force for the next four weeks.
“I have decided in the interest of public safety and the protection of our population to review the public gathering advisories earlier announced as follows. Firstly, all public gatherings including conferences, workshops, funerals, festivals, political rallies, sporting events and religious activities, such as services in churches and mosques, have been suspended for the next four (4) weeks. Private burials are permitted, but with limited numbers, not exceeding twenty-five (25) in attendance,” the President said.
Ghana has so far recorded four more cases of the Coronavirus. This makes a total of six cases.
The development was announced by Director of Public Health at Ghana Health Service, Dr. Badu Sarkodie during a press briefing on the current status of the country at the Information Ministry, Sunday, March 15, 2020.
According to him, two more cases, after Thursday’s, were confirmed on Friday, March 13, 2020 – one from the Ashanti Region and the other from the Greater Accra Region.
