Shatta Wale has stated that he did not feel out of place when he was caught and put in jail in 2021 for faking being injured in a gun attack.
The Ghanaian dancehall star said the event did not make him feel ashamed or embarrassed. According to him, the inmates did not treat him any differently than they had treated him in the past because that is how his followers have always treated him.
During an appearance on the program Showbiz 360 on TV3, he revealed that the detainees were quite excited to meet him, and some of them even offered to serve him.
“When I went to jail, I actually felt like I was at home. Because people have been in there for 30 years, and they’ve never seen Shatta Wale. So, as they saw me, they fetched water for me. Some brought me food (mostly from their visitors). Just like the way people see me on the streets and kneel down, it was the same way in the jailhouse,” he revealed.
In addition to this, he stated that “it wasn’t like they took me there to suffer; rather, it was like a vacation. It didn’t humble me very much at all.”
Shatta Wale was arrested and remanded in custody for seven days after staging a fake gunshot incident in October 2021, after one Bishop Stephen Akwasi prophesied that the musician would die in the same manner as South African reggae artist Lucky Dube.
Later on, an Accra High Court found him guilty of the offense of publishing fabricated news after he entered a guilty plea to the charge.
