Shatta Wale exploded with anger and expressed his outrage at those demanding his arrest, days after reports circulated about his close friend Hajia4Reall being arrested for a romance scam. In his first response to the trending topic, Shatta Wale, during a Facebook Live video, strongly denied any involvement in fraudulent activities and criticized the individuals connecting him to such accusations.
He questioned why he would engage in such illegal actions and alleged that influential people in Ghana were eagerly awaiting his arrest because of his notorious reputation. He expressed his frustration by stating, "As they have arrested Hajia 4Reall, some stupid people in this country have been inciting the FBI to arrest Shatta Wale. Your mother, your father, your mother again, your father again."
Moreover, Shatta Wale asserted that the authorities at Kotoka International Airport should investigate drug smuggling activities involving Ghanaian artists who travel abroad. He claimed that the airport officials were aware of the illicit activities of several Ghanaian musicians and entertainers who smuggle drugs out of the country.
At one point, he disclosed, "Once upon a time, I was told there are Ghanaian artists who smuggle cocaine outside the country and the airport monitors them. The airport knows, go and ask them how many artists travel with cocaine that they're aware of."
