On Tuesday, October 17, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo set social media ablaze when he sent a tweet wishing dancehall artiste Shatta Wale happy birthday.

What made that tweet unique was that the President addressed the dancehall artiste in pidgin.

Born Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jnr. on October 17, 1984, turned 33, he received a rather exciting message from the President.

President Akufo-Addo wished the ‘Taking Over’ hit singer “Happy birthday @shattawalegh!”

Shatta Wale would have been satisfied with the fact that the President recognized him on his birthday but the First Gentleman was not done yet.
