Shatta Wale could not hold back his tears when he saw the mammoth crowd that besieged his Freedom Wave Concert which he headlined with his bestie Medikal at the Accra Sports Stadium.
The honcho of one of the biggest bases in Ghana- the Shatta Movement, almost filled the 40 thousand-capacity Sports Stadium and the sight of his fans coming out in their numbers to support him overwhelmed him.
Unable to suppress the emotions building up in him, he slumped on the stage in tears.
Intermittently, he put himself together and uttered;
“…if we want to fill the Accra Sports Stadium we can fill it but when we fill it they should say we have filled it because it is not easy…this December the fans can come and fill the other side. We want to invite everybody to come to celebrate Christmas with us,” the dancehall artiste said.
“I believe companies will pay huge sums to see the crowd lined up like this…all you see at the stadium is love…All those people you see at the stadium are like family members. We don’t stress to even get these numbers to the stadium…this show (last year) we put out the flyer a week to the show. We didn’t do a billboard or promo.”
After the success of the show, he took to Twitter to thank his loyal fans for showing up for his concert, writing: “Thank you SM Fans. Thank you again loyal blood SM fans. I owe you my life.”
