The hardships in Ghana are the fault of Ghanaians, not politicians who misuse our money – Shatta Wale


Dancehall musician,Charles Nii Armah Mensah widely known in showbiz circles as Shatta Wale says that politicians should not be blamed for the hardship in Ghana but the “Lazy” citizens in the country.

Shatta Wale claims that anytime he sees politicians receiving shots for Ghana’s hardship, he laughs uncontrollably.

Speaking in an interview on 3Music TV monitored by, the dancehall enigma has attributed the hardship in Ghana to the fact that the youth in the country are very lazy and never willing to do anything meaningful.

Shatta Wale believes that politicians are doing everything possible to make Ghana a better place but the youth are so lazy that they refuse to grab available job opportunities.

The dancehall musician revealed that there are many job opportunities in the country, but the youth ignore because they are all after white collar- jobs which are scarce.

“Sometimes, when we blame the politicians, I laugh. Politicians are doing everything they can to work as politicians. It’s just that when you’re lazy in your mind and you don’t know how to take advantage of opportunities yourself, you will always be talking about politicians,” he stated.

According to the “Freedom” hitmaker, politicians in Ghana do not use the country’s money for their gluttony, they invest in developmental projects, especially in the rural areas.

“Politicians are like cartels with how they run things. It’s not that they’re disrespecting the people; they promise, and you vote for them. But when they go to the white man and take money from them, the white man thinks that they will use it to provide jobs for the youth. They don’t know that the politician will take that money and give it to cheap labour, those from the rural areas”, he added.

Shatta Wale thinks politicians in the country “know that those who went to tertiary institutions will not apply. Our politicians have realized that the youth want flashy things and to wear suits. They don’t want to go into construction. But there’s a lot of money in construction”.
