You only think about how you will bring it and get your money – Shatta Wale fumes over E-levy

You only think about how you will bring it and get your money – Shatta Wale fumes over E-levy

Ghanaian Dancehall Artist, Charles Nii Armah, known in showbiz as Shatta Wale has added his voice to the masses against the electronic levy brouhaha saying, “it is very insensitive to not think about the voices of the people who voted politicians into power”.

In a video that went viral, Shatta Wale acknowledges the potential returns of E-levy but criticize decision-makers for not showing proof of other tax deductions.

“Everybody is talking about E-levy. Yes, it’s nice. You understand. But create measures. Create things for the citizens not to complain so that when you do this, we will understand that we are all building it. Don’t work as the country is yours. Work with us.”

He mentions America, where “the system” is in place. As a result, he highlights systems that benefit and make life easier for those living in other countries.

“You people say you want to do E-levy, yeah, we understand. It is everywhere in the world. Have our leaders done some for us? Have they created something like that for us? No! And how much does it even take to create those things.”

Shatta Wale urged the administration to listen to the people who entrusted them with the votes that propelled them[NPP] to power.

“But when you people wake up, then you decide in parliament, then you just bring the thing out for people. But it won’t affect your mother, fathers and your generations because that is what you people are securing. But have you taught about your classmate Kwame, who was so intelligent but couldn’t get the opportunity that you’ve gotten? Kwame never had money in school, but he was always the first in class. How will his parents survive if there’s a decision like this? Have you thought about it? No!

“You only think about how you will bring it and get your money. And you just bring it to the people, and you hear them complain. And you don’t pay attention to the people. And these are the same people that put their thumbs on the paper to vote for presidents,” he concluded.
