Shatta Wale is on the verge of being invited by the Ghana Police service to answer some questions concerning an alleged assault incident after the victim storm the East Legon Police Station to file a complaint against him and if he should be found guilty then it could lead to a possible arrest.
The big question is what will be the reaction in the Ghanaian media should he face the law just like other Citizens and be arrested? Would there be hashtags dedicated to his Freedom just like in the case of other Celebrities?
Rolling it back to the arrest of Ghanaian actress, Rosemond Brown who is well known professionally as Akuapem Poloo, the Ghanaian social media scene was flood with the hashtag ‘Free Poloo’ and that even intensified after her conviction of 90 days imprisonment.
That aside, currently there is a social media campaign against the Government termed ‘Fix The Country’ with intense pressure been put on them to lay down some strict factors that will push the country away from ongoing hardship being it through disciplinary actions or infrastructure development, in fact everything that will help the country be a better place to be.
No doubt Shatta Wale is one of the most influential personalities available in the country and his arrest would lead to some crazy reactions but that certainly might not involve calls for his release since we are the same people calling on Government to Fix the country including complaints that many are not punished for their wrongdoings hence the reason there is high level of indiscipline.
Considering the heat we turn up on Government , In fact we all will be described with a term beyond the usual ‘hypocrites’ should a large section of the media support a hashtag dedicated to Shatta Wale’s freedom incase he is thrown behind bars.
