The Ghana Federation of Disability Organizations (GFD) has threatened to sue popular dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale, for reportedly describing music artiste, Stonebwoy, as a disabled person. Speaking with Mike 2 on Adom Entertainment Hall, the President of the Federation, Ofori Debrah, noted that they are looking forward to an apology letter by Shatta Wale, else a legal action will be instituted against him.
“We see it as an insult on all of us, and as such we are going to use Article 191 of the Disability Act to file a case against him,” he threatened.
According to him, they would first write a caution letter to Shatta Wale, so that he can respond with his apology letter.
Failure to do that, he went on, will lead to the filing of a suit against him. He went on to say that the reason the federation delayed was because they wanted Stonebwoy to first take action against Shatta Wale.
However the ‘Baafira’ hitmaker declined to comment when contacted on the matter. YEN.com.gh earlier reported on exchanges between the two dancehall artistes on Facebook, a social media platform.
Words used in describing each other attracted attention from a cross-section of Ghanaians, who condemned the entire incident. Credit: yen.com.gh
