On Tuesday, October 17, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo set social media ablaze when he sent a tweet wishing dancehall artiste Shatta Wale happy birthday.
What made that tweet unique was that the President addressed the dancehall artiste in pidgin.
When Shatta Wale, born Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jnr. on October 17, 1984, turned 33, he received a rather exciting message from the President.
President Akufo-Addo wished the ‘Taking Over’ hit singer “Happy birthday @shattawalegh!”
Shatta Wale would have been satisfied with the fact that the President recognized him on his birthday but the First Gentleman was not done yet.
Taking things a notch higher and in pidgin, the President added that, “You for come visit me for Flagstaff House o!”
Overwhelmed by the message from President Akufo-Addo, the dancehall artiste swiftly responded, “ah! but @NAkufoAddo U be guy oo!! pidgin reply paaa…i feel you ruff..lol”
Shatta Wale thanked the President for the birthday message and noted that he will pay him a visit soon. “Thank you, your Excellency. I will follow the necessary procedures and pay a visit soon Mr President. I hope my land cruiser will be ready”
