Award-winning Ghanaian Dancehall artiste and CEO of Shatta Movement, Shatta Wale has openly declared that he will not be a an ambassador for Covid-19 if he won’t be paid for his services xorlali.com can confirm.
Shatta Wale in an interview monitored by xorlali.com on 3FM with host MzGee stated that if the government wants to employ him to be an ambassador to create an awareness of covid-19 he would not render his services for free.
Adding that once the government charges him tax and their royalties as artists are not rightfully getting to them, he in this regard, taking an ambassadorial mandate for free will not be the best option for him.
They’re working and they’re getting paid… They’re charging us with taxes here and there and we understand. Our royalties are not getting to us so we’re not even making that kind of money that we have to make; so if the government wants to engage me, Stonebwoy, Sarkodie or any other, they should know that there is something that needs to be done. It’s a tradition.
We can’t come out and say we’re going to do it for free. I’m not part of their political party. It’s best for them to put a package down. Doing it for free will be very hard for someone like me.” Shatta Wale explained.
