“This is what I have to say
Psychological, or emotional trauma is damage or injury to the psyche after living through an extremely frightening or distressing event and may result in challenges in functioning or coping normally after the event.
“The statement made by this false prophet has gotten me in a mood of violence since no one in this country cares.
“So the police of this country want to tell me none of them saw those threatening statements online to take action?
“This pastor said on the 18th October, Shatta Wale will be shot and you want to tell me you didn’t see from your cyber crime department nor did you hear or come across anything like that online?”
“I won’t wait for Ghana police to call my father and tell my father his son got shot this afternoon. I won’t wait for Ghana stupid media houses to spread news to my fans about me being shot because all we wish in this country is for dead people and funerals.
“If my life can be threatened and there is no law to take actions on that, then I guess I will do what is right in the eyes of God.
“This is not the first time I have had these threats in this country. Now I am going these emotional trauma alone. My dad has even defended me on radio on this same issue. why? Why? Ghana? Why?
“Yes, my life is in danger and I’m on the run till this country shows me there are laws. Deportee, I’m sorry for taking your phone. Dope, sorry for taking your phone.
“To my fans, I’m sorry, but I will have to fight this fight alone and get it done.
“To my Dad, I say sorry for putting you through stress.
“Pastor always say things and later plan evil to it so that I and you will believe that they are powerful men of God.
“Enough is Enough. The youth of this country are tired of ‘religiousness’. We know God already and that is that.
“If this will make me stop music like how many want me to stop, then so be it. Because I’m tired of the negativity in this country.” (sic)
