The mother of dancehall musician, Charles Nii Armah Mensah who is widely known as Shatta Wale, Elsie Evelyn Avemegah is once again in the news and this time, she was heard in a leaked audio where she said that she carried her son in her belly for 13 months.
This comes after she made headlines some days ago after she claimed she has no place to sleep after she was evicted from her place of abode.
After making this known, Shatta Wale reacted to it and according to him, even if his mother is sleeping on the streets, he does not care. It is due to this that the woman has dropped some revelations surrounding the musician’s birth.
In the audio, she said;
“I am the one who birthed Shatta Wale. I gave birth to him at the Police Hospital and suffered a lot. It took thirteen months and nine days before I went into labour. I paid my hospital bills. I circumcised him and paid for it.
I am the only one who looked after my child until he was old enough. I was his support when he was Bandana. I was still his support when he couldn’t make music for over 10 years. It was all me. This child comes from my stomach.
I looked after him for him to become Shatta Wale. Shatta Wale, who talked about what he will do for me, didn’t even take me to Kaneshie.
“People of Ghana, I am very hungry. I’m so hungry. Stop all that talk saying this is hype.
What hype? At my age, what hype do I need? I have hidden things from you for a long time. I just haven’t been talking. I have lost everything. I’m sharing the truth with you. At my age, should I go back to sleeping on the streets? Sleeping inside buses? I used to sleep in buses with him, and if today things are better, shouldn’t he take care of me?
Help me caution Shatta. All that he is doing I’ve been silent. But this time, I will speak up. I will say it all. Look at what Shatta is doing to me, his mother. Since he came on earth, if he has seen someone doing what he is doing to me, then he should continue. But if not, The elders should advise him about the things he is doing. He shouldn’t force me to speak.”
