In an audio clip making the rounds online, Mama Shatta noted how she can barely afford to feed herself, yet her son is showing no interest in her welfare, Ghbase reports.
In her words; “I am Shatta’s mother. I had him in the Police Hospital and suffered much. It was 13 months and 9 days before I gave birth. My hospital costs were covered.
“I had him circumcised and paid for it. I was the only one who raised my kid. I stood by him while he was Bandana. I was his support even when he couldn’t compose music for a decade. It was all mine. This kid is my womb. I nurtured him to become Shatta Wale. Shatta Wale, who promised to help me, didn’t even accompany me to Kaneshie.
“Ghana, I am so hungry. I’m ravenous. Stop calling this a fad. What do I need hype at my age? I withheld things from you for a long time. I simply haven’t been conversing. I’ve lost everything. I’m telling you the truth. Should I, at my age, return to the streets? Sleeping in buses? Shouldn’t he take care of me if things are better now?
“I am in need of aid from Ghanaians, preachers and dignitaries alike. Help me warn Shatta. I’ve remained quiet through it all. But this time I will speak out. I’ll tell it everything.
“Look at what Shatta does to me, his mother. His actions against me are justified because he arrived on Earth. But if not, the elders should counsel him. He shouldn’t make me speak.”
This comes a week after she revealed that the house her son claimed he bought for her was a rented one and the landlord has evicted her.
