Ghanaian reggae-dancehall artist, Shatta Wale has squared off with his biological mother Madam Elsie Evelyn Avemegah after she took to the media to accuse him of neglect and abandonment.
According to Mama Shatta as she’s fondly called in Ghana, her son has refused to send her money for her upkeep and even her landlord has thrown her out of his house because her rent is due.
However, Shatta Wale has dismissed all the accusations from his mother in his most recent Instagram live session with his fans.
During the Instagram live session, Shatta Wale revealed that his mother is the reason he struggled while growing up.
He went on to further disclose that his father had the intention to relocate all the family abroad but his mother destroyed that plan by running away for her own selfishness.
“I am from a broken home. My mother left my father. Let me tell you, people, something. When I was in SHS 1, we studied thirteen subjects in Ghana. I’m not a machine or factory to learn thirteen subjects a day. So I told my father that I can’t continue schooling,“ Shatta Wale said.
He added; “Then, my father planned to relocate the family to Miami (USA). The first time I heard Miami, it was from my father. When I was a child, I travelled to London and others. He had gotten a contract in America, so he wanted to relocate his family. Oh, my sister and brother, my mother left my father. She rubbished the plans. She run away and left my father. My father tried, tried and tried. God is our witness.”
