Manager of Shatta Wale, Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson, also known as Bulldog, says his artiste is worth more than the GHS2 million he allegedly received from the Ghana Exim Bank for an ambassadorial role.
Reacting to the news in an interview with Umaru Sanda Amadu on Citi FM, Bulldog said Shatta Wale would have charged more than the figure been thrown about if the news was true.
“If I was in charge of accounts, I would have charged more because he deserves it. I believe every Ghanaian artiste deserves more. The entertainment industry and creative people in Ghana have been downplayed for a very long time,” he said
His response was in relation to whether Shatta Wale was worth the amount he is alleged to have been paid to serve as an ambassador for made in Ghana products; a move being championed by the bank.
Bulldog has also confirmed that there is an agreement between his artiste and Exim Bank. He noted that the contractual agreement signed a few weeks ago has already commenced. The deal first came to the fore during Parliament’s ongoing Public Accounts Committee (PAC) sittings.
