Tourism Minister for Ghana, Hon. Catherine Afeku has defended comments made by Shatta Wale that ‘Ghana is a village’.
According to her, what the Dancehall musician said is a wakeup call.
She noted that she watched Shatta Wale’s London Concert Live so she saw what led to him saying “Ghana is a Village”
And that Shatta didn’t mean to degrade Ghana but rather call on Ghanaians living abroad to come back home and help develop the country.
“I watched the concert he did in London and Amsterdam on YouTube There is a lot of diaspora that he was more like you at the environment you live in…look what you left home. Why don’t you come and also build the home that you left; for me, that was how i interpreted it, Hon. Afeku said.
Being very positive, I felt that he was making a call to duty for our diaspora…he was not denigrating…but it was a call to action”, the Honorable Minister further said.
