‘Young Ghanaians can only write st*pid articles on the internet, but they can’t demonstrate.’ – Shatta Wale on the Ejura demonstration.
Shatta Wale, a Ghanaian dancehall musician, blames the youth for the country’s issues, claiming that they are unwilling to fight for their rights and can only post ‘nonsense essays’ online.
His remark came in the wake of today’s news of military brutality in Ejura, Ashanti Region.
A number of protestors took to the streets to denounce the death of a ‘Fix The Country’ activist, according to reports.
The military is accused of shooting into the crowd, killing two unarmed protestors and injuring others.
In response to the news, the “Ayoo” hitmaker stated Ghanaian young have failed to stand up and fight for their rights, and he blamed them for the country’s issues.
On Tuesday, June 29, he stated this in a tweet.
“As for Ghana, dierr, the issue is that we, the youth, are unable of standing up and fighting for our rights…
“It’s nonsense,” he wrote on Twitter.

He claimed that Ghanaian youth can only protest online and that this will not solve anything.
Shatta Wale went on to urge that people should rise up and fight, and that they should stop writing “crap essays” on social media.
“On a daily basis, I type on the internet…
Massa, you’re not going to fix anything ooo, get up and fight instead of writing silly essays!! “I believe it was Mek,” he added.
Rapper Edem reacted angrily to his tweet, saying that the youth rose up but were shot and died, and that ‘no one is safe’ in Ghana.
“Bro…Pls rise dem they shoot them…..Ebi that one we’re going to fight…
No one is safe when people are shot and killed,” he said, quoting Shatta Wale’s post.
Shatta Wale and Edem aren’t the only Ghanaian celebrities who have spoken out about the Ejura demonstration.
