Shatta Wale And Medikal Were Chastised For Dousing Fans In Cash After Returning From The UK.

Rapper Medikal and dancehall artist Shatta Wale have come under fire from certain social media users for leaving cash lying around the streets after their return from the UK.

The pair had just returned from a sell-out performance on May 3, 2024, at the 2,800-seat Indigo O2 in the UK, which was hosted by Medikal.

Some A-list Ghanaian musicians, including as Sarkodie and Bisa Kdei, joined them.

Shatta Wale accompanied Medikal, whose true name is Samuel Adu Frimpong, when they arrived at Kotoka International Airport on May 14, 2024, according to videos that Yes Ghana Online saw on social media.

Large crowds of people had gathered to welcome the artists and congratulate them on their achievement, and they greeted the two.

The pair could be seen in one video carrying bundles of cash, scaling a car’s roof, and dousing the ecstatic supporters in cash.

Another video shows Medikal’s caravan stopping in the middle of the road, causing cash to fly into the street and hawkers scurrying to get their hands on the bills.

However, the pair came under fire on social media from many who took offense at the spectacle.

Some advocated for more responsible and intimate forms of giving. Some defended the gesture, arguing that it helped individuals who were having a hard time financially, while others, citing similar instances in Nigeria, saw it as a risky conduct that could result in accidents or even legal penalties.

“I find it unfortunate that some people will be getting their mouths cut off somewhere tomorrow. We greet you, IGP, oo,” wrote a social media user.

“Had he been in Nigeria, he would have been taken into custody and appeared in court. The precise reason behind Bob Risky’s arrest. Respect for the money is required,” wrote another social media user.

“May God show pity on these men who can’t care for their moms and children yet have five cedi notes to spray in public. I’m sorry I’m depressed,” remarked someone else.

“Why can’t you give the money to them personally?” another was included.

“Please speak for yourself; those who are saying this need to stop. Ghana is a harsh country; occasionally, a person needs those coins to stay alive. You’re OK, so don’t come ruin things for anyone. Not everyone works hard and gets paid well. Permit the street,” someone argued.
