Video: ‘Ghana is a village’ – Shatta Wale tells London fans

Though it was a completely sold out concert at Indigo, 02 in London, Shatta Wale sparked a bit of controversy when he referred to Ghana as a "village".


The “My Level” hit maker took his ‘Reign’ album tour to the UK, as he performed at Indigo, 02 in London over the weekend.


Though it was a completely sold out concert, Shatta Wale sparked a bit of controversy when he referred to Ghana as a village on stage.

Whiles performing his numerous hit songs, the artiste paused and told his fans that they should disregard any negatives news about him on the internet which emanates from Ghana.

He went further by ordering the fans to repeat after him that “Ghana is a village”, to which they duly obliged.

“Shatta Wale is a very nice guy, all that you read on Google from Ghana [are not true]. Ghana is village, say Ghana is a village, say village,” he said, as the fans repeated after him.

The Zylofon Media signee, however, later gained some redemption when he urged Ghanaians living in the UK to return and help build Ghana.


He called on them to return home and claim the country from the hands of politicians so that Ghana can be as developed as Dubai.

“Ghana is a country that you have to come back and fight for. Because we are suffering in Ghana; the politicians are lying to us too much. Our music industry is not good. So whatever education you have here today, make sure you come home so that we build Ghana like Dubai,” Shatta Wale added.
