Ghanaian musician and influencer Diamond Michelle Gbagonah, known as Michy, believes that her separation from her former fiancé, Shatta Wale, was God’s plan.
On August 12, 2023, the TV star voiced her thoughts on Accra’s Joy FM during the Showbiz A to Z program with host Kwame Dadzie.
Dadzie had brought up an interview Michy had given to Delay, in which she stated that her relationship with Reggae/Dancehall artist Shatta Wale would be tough to reproduce with any other man. She described them as best friends, with Wale acting like a brother.
“I won’t take those words back though,” Michy said.
She explained that she “always told him we’re better of best friends, we’re better off business partners than dating and God has found a way, no matter how difficult that way came through or by, to bring us back to what we’re supposed to be”.
Michy also mentioned in the Delay interview that “if I were a man, I’d like to dress and look like” Wale, with whom she had a son.
Dadzie commented that it indicates how much she misses her ex-boyfriend.
“Fond is the word,” Michy exclaimed enthusiastically, acknowledging her enduring fondness for Shatta Wale. She also acknowledged the difficulty in replicating the special connection they had shared.
Michy, formerly Shatta Michy, started to date Shatta Wale when she was 17-years-old going on to 18 in a “few months”.
