Liberian Dancehall artiste, Chillout Badman has revealed the mad love Liberians have for Ghanaian Dancehall act Shatta Wale.
The artiste who is currently in Ghana for a project and paid a courtesy call on Shatta Wale told Sammy Flex on Showbiz Daily that Liberians have embraced Wale and his music so he has even urged the fans to officially starts a fan base to honour him.
“The idea started from nowhere. I am a dancehall artiste and I have been following Shatta Wale for years. The vision of Shatta Wale is what prompted us to follow SM. We started the movement in Liberia by walking from one ghetto to the other ghetto just to talk to the ghetto youth about the movement. We dedicated ourselves with my man Don Kalon and the rest of the team to various ghettos just to put the youth together to support Shatta Wale.
You see, when it comes to music, Liberia is a country that we don’t discriminate because we’ve got a mixed culture. We’ve got the American culture, life style and the African life style. Aside that, Ghana and Liberia have very tight relationships. Ghana is a country that Liberia look up to. During the war, Ghana was the country that gave us refuge. So Liberia supporting Ghanaian artistes is basically because of the things that have been going on way back, for years” he stated.
He further stated that Shatta Wale’s music is not just any music but something that really inspires the ghetto youth. He added;
“I will tell you this, the day Shatta Wale will come to Monrovia, it`s going to be something else. Shatta hasn’t been to Liberia yet. He has only been on radio to say he is coming and everybody is desperately waiting, including the president His Excellency George Weah. He wants to meet Shatta Wale and support the movement. We have about 3million Shatta Movement supporters in Liberia” he disclosed.
