Since the outbreak of the novel coronavirus pandemic, almost everything has come to a standstill.
In the course of the viral outbreak, many entertainment personalities, institutions, and influencers devised means to get their spirits lifted.
In Ghana, several artistes and institutions have organised virtual shows, programmes and initiatives to entertain people and get them to adhere to the safety protocols set by the government and health experts.
According to Gabby Asare Otchere Darko, one person who stands out for him in all this is Dancehall artiste and multiple award winner, Charles Nii Armah popularly known as Shatta Wale.
The leading member of the governing NPP said Shatta Wale showed leadership worth emulating with the kind of messages and engagements he had with his followers.
He said over time, the self-acclaimed dancehall artiste has proven his sense of maturity and positive influence on the youth in Ghana.
“In contemplation… I have watched and have been impressed with the apparent growing maturity of this young man. He recognises his influence on young people and seems determined to exploit it for positivity. His actions and messages in this COVID-19 period have been exemplary,” Gabby noted.
Shatta Wale, reacting to the acknowledgement by Gabby, expressed appreciation that his efforts have been appreciated.
“Thank you, sir, coming from you means a lot to me and the whole Shatta movement,” he said in a quoted tweet.
