Shatta Wale Is Now Born Again!

Weeks back at the Accra Sports Stadium during the Bass Awards Nominees

Jams when Shatta Wale openly apologized to Kaakie for dissing her in

the aftermath of the VGMAs, I got the impression that he has repented

of his old ways and has become born again. On that same stage, he also

went on to confess that he would go down on his knees to beg Samini

for the opportunity for the two of them to record a song to unite

their fans. ''I would kneel down in front of Samini and beg him so

that we can do a track together just to unite our fans'' were Shatta

Wale words. For quite some time now, I have been wondering why the

sudden change in Shatta Wale's conduct. I never thought Shatta Wale

would humble himself so much to the extent that he would apologize to

Kaakie and also beg to record a song with Samini but he did so.

Remember, it's only a fool that does not change his mind. I wouldn't

be surprised if many people have formed the opinion that Shatta Wale

is only trying to win favour in the eyes of the general public.

Winning favour could be a possibility but for how long can Shatta Wale

pretend if he is not really born again? In as much as time would tell,

the Korle Gonno Godfather and Ghana's Dancehall King, Shatta Wale has

gone a step further to really prove that he is not inhuman as many

people think he is, by expressing his regret for dissing Kaakie in a

song, titled ''Letter to Kaakie that he has just released. However in

these few days, there has been an uproar in the dancehall fraternity

as a result of the release of Samini's ''pink sheets''. News making

rounds in the media suggests that the song is a dissing song targeted

at Sakordie and Shatta Wale. When the song was released, it left so

many people disappointed because they never expected such a song from

Samini especially after Shatta Wale had openly expressed his desire to

record a song with him for the sake of peace. To test Shatta Wale's

born again status, many people are patiently waiting to see if Shatta

Wale would release a song in response to Samini's ''pink sheets''or

not. I would be very surprised and disappointed if Shatta Wale

responds to Samini but I guess that would never happen. In an

exclusive with Flex Newspaper, Shatta Wale revealed that he has

listened to ''pink sheets'' but does not hear Samini mention his name

in the song and as such does not think the song is directed at him.

Based on this observation, Shatta Wale is unlikely to respond to

Samini. For now, I am convinced that Shatta Wale is really born again.

However, the big question to ask is if Shatta Wale would not backslide

in the few days to come. Surprisingly, Shatta Wale is yet to

officially ask Samini to join him in recording a ''unity 'song. Would

Samini agree to Shatta Wale's request? How would the ''unity'' song

sound like if both Samini and Shatta Wale forget about the past and

put the enemy to shame? What would happen if Samini does not accept

Shatta Wale's request? Would that be an influencing factor for Shatta

Wale to backslide? Ghana is keenly watching Shatta Wale and time would

tell if he is really born again. I rest my case.
