Some of your fans are Persons with Disability, stop mocking Stonebwoy - GSPD to Shatta Wale

The Ghana Society of the Physically Disabled (GSPD) has issued a stern caution to Shatta Wale, urging the musician to refrain from mocking his colleague, Stonebwoy, over his disability.

The rebuke comes in response to a recent incident during Shatta Wale's performance at Sallahfest, where he launched insults at Stonebwoy for his absence at the event. Shatta Wale's comments, including mockery of Stonebwoy's manner of walking, sparked widespread criticism after videos of the incident circulated on social media.

The GSPD has expressed concern over Shatta Wale's behavior and its potential impact on the mental well-being of the physically disabled community.

In a press statement released Monday, April 15, 2024, the GSPD condemned Shatta Wale's actions as irresponsible and harmful. The statement highlighted Shatta Wale's remarks, which insinuated that disability equates to being a bad person, as particularly troubling.


The statement said some of Shatta Wale's fans include persons with disability who will not be happy with his comment.

"We want to remind Shatta Wale that a section of his own fans who are making him who he is are persons with disabilities. Did he think how they would feel? or Shatta Wale thinks he has made it so he does not care?

"By this statement, he is trying to say all persons with disabilities are bad, that is why God has made us who we are. This primitive statement should not have come from a high-profile personality like Shatta Wale," the statement read.

The GSPD emphasized that disability is not synonymous with being cursed or punished by a higher power.

They called on Shatta Wale to apologize to the community and take steps to remove the offensive videos from social media platforms.
