The Ghana Society of the Physically Disabled (GSDP) has demanded a retraction and an apology from Award-winning dancehall artiste Shatta Wale.

This comes after the self-acclaimed Dancehall King, Shatta Wale made a disparaging comment about fellow musician Stonebwoy, describing the latter as a cripple.

The Ghana Society of the Physically Disabled in a statement dated Monday, April 15, 2024, described Shatta Wale’s comment and conduct as primitive and demanded an immediate apology and retraction.

‘In the said video, Shatta Wale said among other statements ‘you are a bad person that is why God made you a disabled person. you are a disabled person, don’t try and fight an able person.’ By this statement he is trying to say that all persons with disabilities are bad that is why God has made us who we are.

“This primitive statement should not have come from a high-profile personality like Shatta Wale. This act is irresponsible and this should be condemned by all,” the statement said.
The Society noted that the actions of Shatta Wale contravened Ghana’s constitution, the Disability Act 715.

“We want to remind Shatta Wale that a section of his own fans who are making him who he is, are persons with disabilities. Did he think about how they will feel? Or he thinks he has made it so he does not care?

“The GSPD takes exception to this statement and ask Shatta Wale to retract his statement, remove such video from social media and apologize to all persons with disability and Ghanaians.- the group demanded.
