Dancehall artiste, Charles Nii Armah Mensah popularly known as Shatta Wale says he is ready to meet Reverend Obofour, the General Overseer of Anointed Palace Chapel.
According to him, Obofuor is carrying out exactly the task God sent he [Shatta Wale] to do on earth.
Shatta indicated that, “What Obofuor is doing now is God sent. It’s what God also sent me to do on earth, I want to meet him, I only like to meet people who will be a blessing to my life.”
He added that Ghanaians are so myopic hence feel lazy to foresee their future, adding that God isn’t concerned about some lifestyles as most people think.
“God himself will come within a Ferrari. God also goes to club. Ghanaians are so so myopic that they don’t think into the future, God is a guy, he goes everywhere his children go. Obofuor is really doing what he wants him to do.”
The Head Pastor of the Anointed Palace Chapel noted for singing Shatta Wale’s songs has said during one of his church services that most of Shatta Wale’s songs have better content than the mainstream gospel songs.
He described Shatta Wale as the nation’s preacher because he touches on relevant issues that gospel artistes fail to tackle.
According to him, the content of most gospel songs are jaded. The man of God said he needs songs that will make him dance; songs that will help his congregation burn calories so they do not get knocked down by stroke.
“Who is a gospel artiste? The message in the song is the most important thing. Dances performed in the clubs are also right here in church,” he said.
“Is Shatta Wale not a human being? Those who call themselves gospel musicians are engaging in sexual immorality,” he added.
Shatta Wale is currently on a media run to detail what went into creating ‘The Reign’ album which is scheduled to premiere on October 13 at the Fantasy Dome in Trade Fair.
