Ghanaian dancehall artist, Shatta Wale, has alleged that some fellow musicians smuggle drugs such as cocaine through the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) with the knowledge and supervision of the airport management.
The controversial artist made the startling revelation in response to allegations of fraud in the arrest of his friend, Hajia4Real, over a romance scam in the United States.
In a video shared on Twitter, Shatta Wale expressed worry over people's perception about him as bad person due to his controversial character, despite not involved in fraudulent activities.
He claims he had been told how some Ghanaian artists smuggle drugs out of the country with the airport's knowledge.
“As they have arrested hajia4real, some people have been asking the FBI to check me. I’m seeing everything on the internet and I didn’t have the time to react but now I am,” he said angrily in a video that has been shared on Twitter.
“Do you think I’ll do fraud? Why would I engage in fraudulent activities? Big men in the country have crossed their arms and are waiting to see if I’ll be arrested, saying because of the way I am,” he continued.
Shatta Wale alleged, “Once upon a time, I was told there are Ghanaian artistes who smuggle cocaine outside the country, and the airport monitors them. The airport knows, go and ask them how many artists travel with cocaine that they're aware of.”
