It’s clear that the statements from Shatta Wale have come back to hunt him after as a throwback video has surfaced on the net where he is requesting the Inspector General of Police (IGP) with the responsibility to detain and prosecute disgruntled musicians and celebrities for redress.
In one of his social media rants, the self-acclaimed African dancehall king urged police to be logical in their determination to keep peace and order by arresting famous individuals who use their social networks to be a nuisance or “fool around.”
Shatta Wale was convinced that by doing so, it would be an aversion to musicians and other celebrities who were enthralled by their status to play around. He demanded regular confinement of these famous people to jail terms that ranges from 2 to five months.
He believed that the entertainment system needed to be cleaned, and musicians and stars like him who violated the law ought to be prosecuted.
In the meantime, Shatta Wale has fallen short of his request for the IGP and has commenced the period of seven days in the police’s custody for allegedly launching a hoax to conceal the threat to his life.
Although the fear expressed of Shatta Wale following a prophecy that predicted that he would die on the 18th of October is understandable, the way he handled it has been scrutinized and was criticized.
As an example is always better than a precept Shatta Wale has followed the initiative by spending some time in police custody, effectively proving the importance of his warning towards IGP not to spare the rod, and ruin the child so in the case of misdeeds committed by the so-called famous ones is concerned.
