Some Level 200 students of the University for Development Studies (UDS) have been asked to give ‘relevant reasons’ why controversial musician Shatta Wale described Ghana as a village during a performance in London about a month ago.
According to the question, the students were to use their knowledge about development problems of villages and give reasons for the musician’s infamous comments that “Ghana is a village.”
With reference to your knowledge about development problems of villages, state five relevant reasons why Shatta Wale described the whole of Ghana as a village,” the question reads.
While performing at the Indigo O2 Arena in London, Shatta paused and said “I just wanna share that word with you. Shatta Wale is a very nice guy. All that you keep reading about me on google from Ghana…Ghana is a village, say village, village.”
When he realized some of the patrons started booing him offstage for his statement he said “no no, girls let me tell you, don’t get pissed. Look at how you are looking beautiful, nice, sexy, sumptuous.”
While some criticized him for painting Ghana in a bad light in a foreign land, there were people who also believed he said the ugly truth about Ghana considering the myriad of problems plaguing the country.
