Thus, Shatta Wale has asked government to declare today a holiday in celebration of his collaboration with Beyoncé. To Shatta Wale, it would be great if the Akufo-Addo led administration take his request into consideration and make July 19 a work-free-day.
He said that will be a way we can celebrate the success of our musicians in the country for entertaining us with good songs and putting Ghana on the map.

Speaking on the Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, Shatta Wale urged Ghanaians to rally behind the musicians in the country because they are doing extremely well and need to be celebrated, noting that it is not easy to write songs.
“This morning I was telling Bulldog, this should be a day we should all be happy about from today we need to celebrate our musicians for their successes.
“Being in a studio is not an easy thing. Andy you’ve been there a couple of times and you know what I mean. To rack your brain to write lyrics is not an easy thing. So I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everybody,” he told Andy Dosty.
He added , “Today should even be a holiday if the ministry and government are listening to me”. More importantly, Shatta Wale pleaded with the government to pay attention to the creative arts industry like the sports industry.
