This comes a few weeks after a popular Ghanaian prophet, Bishop Stephen Akwasi, aka Jesus Ahoufe, has predicted that dancehall musician, real name Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jr would be shot.
He dished out this doom prophecy during an interview on Accra FM on Tuesday, September 28.
He likened Shatta Wale’s doom prophesy to the death of South African reggae star, Lucky Dube, who was shot dead in the Johannesburg suburb of Rosettenville on the evening of October 18, 2007.
