Entertainment pundit, Whitney Boakye has suggested that any parent who allows their children to nurture the thoughts of having Shatta Wale as a role model has failed.
On the surface, her statement sounds like a big insult to Shatta Wale and his legions of fans but a further explanation she offered reveals she’s right on point with her perspective. In Whitney’s own words, it’s better to have Wale’s songs to motivate you rather than trying to personify him wholeheartedly which is impossible.
Whitney Boakye blurted out; ”I see it as a failure on the part of you, as a parent, if your child’s first role model is Shatta Wale.”Your child can like Shatta Wale or Stonebwoy’s song or how Messi plays football. I get inspiration but to say you want to be like Shatta Wale when you grow, you can’t be like Shatta Wale . . . No! There’s only one Shatta Wale. You can only imitate but you can’t be him,” she said on Peace FM‘s ‘Entertainment Review.
