Shatta Movement President, Shatta Wale, has hinted on his desire to become President of Ghana.

Ghanaian Dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale, has expressed his desire to transition from music to politics in the future to address the socio-economic issues plaguing the country.

Speaking in an interview with blogger, Shadrack Crabe, Shatta Wale said he is willing to quit music to run for the presidency; if he receives massive support from Ghanaians. He emphasised that his decision was a result of his sincere desire to unite the country and to fix the economic problems, by using his popularity and influence to bring about positive change.

The “Ayoo” hitmaker, revealed that his father once advised him to enter politics to become president, citing his confidence and ability to lead a movement with a large following.

According to him, if Ghanaians can look past the negative stereotypes attributed to his personality, and come together to support and encourage him to run in the 2028 elections, his presidential ambition will be realised.

“That is my dream that one day, I would have to help to change Ghana so if Ghanaians are listening to me and you won’t watch me as just Shatta Wale and start to encourage me and come together and support me, I will stand on my feet and leave the music and contest in the next four years election and see if we cannot win hands down,” he added.

In response to questions about the educational requirements for president, Shatta Wale stated that if he was elected as president, he would run the country with the experience and assistance of intellectuals.

He expressed his dismay at the state of Ghana today, pointing out recent instances of inequality and human rights violations and bemoaning the fact that Ghanaians live in a state and not a country.
