Ghana’s King of Dancehall Charles Nii Armah popularly known as Shatta Wale has described Denkyira Obuasi as an evil town and has vowed never to step foot there.
Shatta who was speaking in an exclusive interview on Peace FM’s “Entertainment Review” insisted that no amount of money or security would make him go there.
“I will never go! For me knowing the type of people there that this is how they are, I don’t think my God will even allow me to go there no matter how much money. Even if you offer me $10 million, I will not go because money is the root of all evil. Even if you bring former American President George Bush’s security, I will not go. I don’t believe in money I believe in God and I want to say that no amount of money can make me go to a place with such evil minds”.
“That town is a deadly town. Major is not the only person they have killed; they have killed a lot of people there. I am not saying this because I have prove but how mothers just stood by and watch and even the Assemblyman of the area told them to beat him, I don’t believe Major is the only person they have killed. That town is devilish”.
