Fella Makafui’s rise to fame came through her remarkable performance in the hit youth series “YOLO.” As her popularity soared, so did the public’s interest in her personal life. Her relationship with Ghanaian rapper AMG Medikal became a subject of intense scrutiny and gossip, which placed enormous pressure on Fella’s mental and emotional well-being.
In a recent interview on 3FM, Fella Makafui candidly shared her experience of hitting rock bottom. She recalled a particular incident when her manager informed her about a sex tape supposedly involving her. The news hit her like a ton of bricks, and she felt her world crumbling around her. The weight of the controversy and the potential damage to her reputation became too much to bear.
It was during this harrowing period that Shatta Wale, a close friend of her husband, Medikal reached out to her. Shatta Wale, known for his charismatic personality and unwavering support for his friends, called Fella to clarify that the sex tape did not feature her.

He reassured her that there were distinct differences, such as a tattoo on the girl’s back, which Fella did not have. This phone call, according to Fella Makafui, was a lifeline that pulled her back from the edge of despair.
“I broke down a couple of years ago and nearly took my life. There was this day I was having a meeting with my manager and he just called me and was like Precious I need to tell you something and he was like I know you can’t do something like this but I want you to be honest with me and I was okay what up and he said oh your tape and I am like what ? my sex tape? Where? And then it escalated quickly and I was like I can’t take it anymore.”
“Shatta Wale saved me from that controversy. He called me to clarify that it wasn’t me in the tape and apparently, the girl had a tattoo on her back and I don’t. I would have considered ending my life if Shatta had not called me that night,” she revealed on 3Fm.
