Mama Elsie, mother of self-acclaimed dancehall king, Shatta Wale has responded to Mark Okraku Mantey’s comment that his son’s reckless behaviour should be attributed to her stating that Mark to stop accusing her of supporting Shatta’s dirty games.
Earlier this week, Mark Okraku Mantey in the studios of Hitz FM posited that we should put some blame on Shatta Wale’s mum for her son’s reckless behaviour we see daily. According to him, Shatta Wale once insulted him in front her, and she told him, her son is straightforward and so he should keep quiet & listen to the insults. He said;
“Anytime I listen to her mom in public trying to defend her son’s actions and behaviours, I just shake my head. When Shatta Wale insulted me in front of his mother, I told his mother and she said her son is straightforward so I should keep quiet and listen, let’s blame her mom for her son’s behaviours.
In response to Mark Okraku Mantey’s allegations, Mama Elsie has cautioned Mark to stop misquoting and misrepresenting her:
“This is not the first time Mark is saying this…Mark hates me so much, so am not surprised ..but let me remind Mark that, I have never insulted him before, if you are owing somebody, and I tell you that my son wouldn’t lie for saying you are owing him, does it mean am supporting his dirty games?”
“How can a mother support everything her child does?… We’ve only met once and that was when I went to his house with my son to collect money he was owing to my son which he paid …So, in this case, did I act correctly or not? Where did I go wrong? Even on that day, Mark rather insulted me…and it happened during the Bandana from Ghana days…I like Mark’s submissions on radio and on TV, I like him as a person but he should stop peddling those dubious allegations against me”.
She further pleaded with the general public to forgive Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy over their brawl and ended with an advice for Mark that:
“I’m in one of my trying times…My son and Stonebwoy are in court, give me the peace of mind to sympathize with them…more so, I will entreat Mark to go to Hot FM and Peace FM so that they give him some of the interviews I granted them and check whether I support everything Shatta does”.
