Shatta Wale, a Ghanaian dancehall musician, has written to the Ghanaian government, demanding that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo appoint him and other artists as ambassadors in the fight against the novel coronavirus.
This was announced on Shatta Wale’s official Twitter page on March 2, 2021. Ghana is the first country outside of India to receive COVID-19 vaccine doses from the COVAX Factory.
The president, along with the First Lady, Vice President, and Second Lady, administered the vaccine live on television in order to minimize the need for vaccination among people.
Given all of the knowledge and headlines about the lethal virus, some Ghanaians do not feel the vaccine is beneficial. Shatta Wale, the Shatta Movement’s chief executive officer, has proposed that the government make artists with the largest fan bases in the country lead by example.

He emphasized that doing so would promote and inspire their supporters to get vaccinated. He named Sarknation’s head Sarkodie, Bhination’s Stonebwoy, and Amg Medikal as people who should have their fans vaccinated.
