“Shatta Wale wanted the roadworks to be extended to his office”- Road contractor finally speaks 49



Earlier, reported that Ghanaian Dancehall musician, Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jnr., well known as Shatta Wale descended heavily on some roadworkers he reportedly paid to construct the road at Adjiringanor.

According to reports, the dancehall act attacked the workers with some boys believed to be some of the hoodlums in Nima to beat up the workers for delaying the work.

Sources say that Shatta Wale had paid the constructors an amount of GHC4 million for the construction of the road before he left for his USA trip.

Videos were being circulated on social media which captures the moment Shatta Wale ordered the workers to stop the work.

Well, the road constructor, Mr. Kennedy Acquah who was allegedly slapped during the confrontation has finally narrated his ordeal.

Speaking on Starr FM, he detailed that he was slapped and the hoodlums ordered his workers to stop working because of a disagreement he had with Shatta.

In his own words, he said;

“He sent someone to us on Saturday to tell us to extend the road to his office but we told them the length of the road and areas covered are contractual matters and not decided by the site workers. We asked them to pick the matter up with Urban roads who are supervising the project.”

“We were working today when he (Shatta Wale) just drove past the roadblock sign and came through where we were working despite the fact that we had just laid the asphalt, and asked who was in charge, I went close to tell him I was in charge and before I could explain anything, one of the guys with him just slapped me and he was looking on. There were a number of guys on motorbikes with him”.

“The incident was captured on video by people passing, the police came there but did nothing about the assault on me, they rather exchanged pleasantries with him and told me to be careful”.

However, Mr. Kennedy revealed that he has visited the hospital for treatment but will later file a complaint against the musician for the assault.
