Wife of dancehall artiste says Mahama’s endorsement is an honour
The President during his Accountable to the People tour at Tema commended Shatta for his creativity upon hearing 'Mahama Paper' for the first time.
“When I came to Tema this morning, we were walking to these grounds and I learnt a new song. They were playing ‘Mahama Paper’. It’s my first time of hearing it. But I was trying to wonder what the ‘Mahama Paper’ was about and I remembered that one of the times during the ECOWAS summit, my page thirteen was missing. And so I was asking where my paper is. I’m sure that is what he used to sing the song. But I want to thank Shatta very much,” he said.
Shatta Michy in an interview on Accra FM’s Entertainment Capital expressed gratitude but added she is yet to listen to the audio.
“I heard [about it], but I haven’t actually listened to this audio. It’s a quite an honour,” she said.
‘Mahama Paper’ is a song produced by Shatta Wale (The Maker) and released in 2015. The song gained massive airplay and was embraced by many music lovers.
The afrobeat track talks about the Ghana Cedis which Shatta decided to call it ‘Mahama Paper’ because of the fact that President Mahama is the leader of the country.
