I went to jail but jail no make I fail – Shatta Wale writes as he rides with Medikal
Shatta Wale and Medikal, two popular Ghanaian artists and closest friends, were arrested and imprisoned on various counts, and they spent some time in the cells as a penalty for their crimes before being given bail to reappear before court.
Shatta Wale was charged with “Spreading False Information” and “Causing Fear And Panic” along with other colleagues, while his colleague rapper, Samuel Adu Frimpong, also known as Medikal, was arrested after posting a video of himself holding a Ruger 9mm handgun on Snapchat, a popular social media platform.
Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jnr, popularly known as Shatta Wale, the boss of the Shatta Movement, after being locked up in cells for a week a few months ago, it appears that he gained some motivation and inspiration while he was there, enlightening him of the real struggles of life especially in prison. His spirit was re-energised by the emotional situations he watched whilesn there, as well as the scenario he witnessed with the detainees, to the point that he wrote a song dedicated to them.
After being freed from prison, Shatta Wale and rapper Medikal coined the phrase “Deeper Than Blood.” The dancehall singer tweeted a video of the two riding together with the message below:
Yes I went to jail with my gees, I saw niggas like me ano see u der ,
Yes I went to jail but jail no make I fail
dem no believe as I come back and sign another deal 👑👑💎💎
