Advise yourselves – Shatta Wale to Ghanaians ahead of 2024 elections

Dancehall King Shatta Wale urges the populace to counsel themselves in advance of the 2024 elections since he has lost faith in Ghana’s political system.


The controversial musician claims that Ghana’s democratic system is nothing more than a place for “family business” as opposed to carrying out the mandate for which it was elected to power.

Personally, Shatta declared that he has abstained from voting and all political activity until a leader emerges who has the interests of the people at heart. He advised Ghanaians to take a similar stance.



In an interview with TV3, he asserted that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP), the two major political parties, have both contributed to the current economic crisis.


He urged Ghanaians to counsel one another and decide unanimously not to cast ballots in the upcoming elections as a result.

“If we can form lines to vote for somebody to come to power and they come and make these blunders… I was in the Mahama administration when people said he wasn’t doing anything, now you’ve brought Akufo-Addo, and you’re saying he’s still not doing anything. If you can go and stand in line to vote for a president this time with the situation you are seeing, then you are your own problem,” he charged.

The “Rising Youth” composer believes that Ghanaians made a poor choice that led to the current difficulties and implores them never to make the same mistake again.

“So let us rise and advise ourselves and find a proper leader for this country because people are dying in this country because of these fuel prices and dollar prices, and I believe you guys need to decide for yourselves because me, I don’t think I’d even have that time to vote for a politician that I know wouldn’t do anything for me,” he added.
