Reggae/dancehall artist Shatta Wale has finally broken his silence after reports went viral that he was attacked and killed by strangers.
On Monday evening, his personal assistant and several others posted on social media that the head of the Shatta Movement had been shot and was receiving treatment at a medical facility.
This revelation caused a stir on social media, with many questions about his health condition.
But via Facebook in the early hours of Tuesday, Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jnr popularly known as Shatta Wale has stated that his life is in danger and he is currently on the run.
He noted that until the country’s security agencies stepped forward to address such a threat, its whereabouts would not be known.
“If my life could be threatened and there were no laws to take action on it, then I imagine I will do what is right in God’s eyes.
” This is not the first time I have had this threat in this country now I am experiencing this emotional trauma alone , my father even defended me on the radio about the same issue.
Why? Why? Why? Yes, my life is in danger and I am on the run until this country shows me that there are laws…”.
A prophecy about the death of the dancehall artist, who turned 37 on Sunday, has resurfaced on social media after a portal reported on his alleged assault.
In the above-mentioned social media video, discovered by Vimhype.com Bishop Stephen Akwasi predicts that a Charles, known in the music industry for his roles in the danceroom category, will meet an untimely death.
He compared the anticipated tragedy to the disappearance of South African reggae artist Lucky Dube, who was murdered on October 18, 2007.

Reacting to this, the `Already` hitmaker noted that the false prophecy has since gotten him into a mood of violence.
He bemoaned what he referred to as the inability of the police to take action on the lifethreatening statement.
“This pastor said 18th October Shatta Wale will be shot, and you want to tell me you didn`t see from your cybercrime department, nor did you hear or came across anything like that online?” he quizzed.
He added: “I will not wait for the Ghanaian police to call my father and tell my father that his son was killed this afternoon.
I’m not going to wait for Ghana’s stupid media houses to spread the word to my fans about me shooting at me because all we want in this country is for the dead and funerals.
Shatta Wale further states that he may have experienced psychological and emotional trauma as a result of the prophecy.
He then called for an end to those predictions with the hashtag #StopFalseProphesies. “Psychological or emotional trauma is damage or injury to the psyche after this experience.
This development comes after the police indicated that his group had begun investigating the whereabouts of the ballroom artist.
“Police attention was drawn to widespread news of an alleged firearm attack against a certain Charles Nii Armah Mensah known as Shatta Wale.
“After hearing the news, the police have launched an investigation into the matter, including being in contact with several close friends and family, and all of whom claim to have no knowledge of where he is or the alleged incident.”
According to the report, interactions with relatives and friends of Shatta Wale and visits to his residence found no clues to his whereabouts.
The Service, however, noted that the search for Shatta Wale was continuing and urged members of the public to contact police once they had information on his whereabouts.
Meanwhile, the president of the Shatta movement selflessly apologized to his father and fans for their unfortunate situation.
Furthermore, he accused the priests of orchestrating “evil plans” under the guise of prophecy to be considered mighty men of God.
“Deported, I’m sorry for taking your phone Drugs, I’m sorry for taking your phone. To my fans, I’m sorry, but I had to fight alone and make it through. To my dad, I’m sorry for stressing you out.
Pastors always say things and then plot evil, so that you and I will believe that they are powerful servants of God… Enough.
The young people of this country are tired of religiosity, we already know God and that’s all. Shatta Wale concludes, stating, “If this isIf this is going to make me stop music like a lot of people want, then so be it because I’m tired of the negativity in this country.”
