Government Bank Exposed For Allegedly Paying Shatta Wale GH2m As Brand’s Ambassador

A new corruption scandal involving Ghanaian Dancehall Act, Shatta Wale and Exim Bank has rocked the nation.

The government bank allegedly paid 2 million Ghana cedis to the Dancehall Act to serve as its brand ambassador.

In a report by, Members of Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC) have questioned the basis for which the state-owned Exim Bank allegedly paid about ¢2 million to the dancehall artiste.

The committee believes the at by the bank makes no economic sense for a country like Ghana.

“I mentioned ¢2 million that went to Shatta Wale but the Deputy CEO says they wouldn’t know who the vendor selected and this is not to say that we have a problem with Shatta Wale getting some amount of money to do whatever work.

“But the Ghanaian public deserves to know how much went out and who got it because their answers were not satisfying.”

But responding to the matter at PAC sitting Wednesday, the Deputy Chief Executive Officer with oversight of the Finance and Administration Division, Kwame Adu-Darkwa insisted that he has not signed or sighted any cheque doling GH¢2 million to any artiste.
