Self-acclaimed African Reggae/Ragga & Dance-hall King, Charles Nii-Armah Mensah, professionally known as Shatta Wale, has announced that he will be staging a free concert “Faith Concert” from the comfort of his home, live on youtube.
This “Faith Concert” decision from Shatta Wale comes at the back of Ghana’s President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo announcing an enhanced measure, including a ban on public gatherings and school closure from Monday to contain and combat the COVID-19 outbreak in the country.
The public gatherings include conferences, workshops, funerals, festivals, political rallies, sporting events, and religious events such as services in churches and mosques.
Captioned the “Faith Concert”, the event will be dedicated to his aficionados or supporters, who are enthusiastically devoted to his craft. The event has the objective of urging fans to keep faith in these challenging times as humanity is faced with its extinction and also believing that God will take Ghanaians through this trying phase and knowing that, they all count and can make an effort to stay safe as these daunting hours of COVID-19 pass by.
In a Facebook post, the controversial artiste revealed that the “Faith Concert” will be transmitted live, through all his social media handles, with the date of the event yet to be made public. Meanwhile, he stated that he’s not asking anyone to come to any venue for a show but sit at the comfort of their homes whilst you watch him on any gadget on YouTube just to strengthen themselves in these serious times.
However, the Reggae/Ragga & Dance-hall artiste has shared 1,000 hand sanitizers to a section of Ghanaians as part of mechanisms arrayed to prevent them from contracting the deadly Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) disease.
