It started as a simple request from dancehall artiste Shatta Wale on Twitter on October 13 to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
He asked the president, “Your excellency, Tuesday is my birthday ..what are you giving me ..@NAkufoAddo ”
Shatta Wale, born Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jnr. on October 17, 1984, turned 33 on Tuesday.
Following his tweet, the artiste received an exciting message from the president.
President Akufo-Addo wished the ‘Taking Over’ hit singer “Happy birthday@shattawalegh!”
Shatta Wale would have been satisfied with the mere fact that the president recognized him on his birthday but the First Gentleman was not done yet.
Taking things a notch higher and in pidgin, the president added that, “You for come visit me for Flagstaff House o!”
Overwhelmed by the message from President Akufo-Addo, the dancehall artiste swiftly responded, “ah ! but@NAkufoAddo U be guy oo !! pigin reply paaa…i feel you ruff..lol”
Shatta Wale thanked the president for the birthday message and noted that he will pay him a visit soon.
“Thank you your Excellency .I will follow the necessary procedures and pay a visit soon Mr. President. I hope my land cruiser will be ready”
