Zylofon Music signee, Shatta Wale has added his voice to the developing story surrounding ‘Strika’ of ‘Beast of No Nation’ fame who was spotted begging on the streets of Accra.
He bemoaned the fact that minors were exposed to violence and wielding guns and other weapons in the movie and leave them to their fate afterwards.
“It is really sad to see that the little boy has been left to beg for alms. They could have set up an educational trust fund. How can children be made to handle such arms in a movie? What if these children turn out to be criminals later engaging in all sorts of social vices”, the ‘Dancehall King’ said.
According to the ‘Gringo’ hitmaker, in making the movie, he was contacted together with other musicians because their songs were used as soundtrack.
He made this revelation to Arnold Elavanyo Mensah on Showbiz Agenda:”Several emails were sent to me when they were shooting the movie. I received 15,000 cedis and my colleagues took ‘cheap’ 300-500cedis each for using our songs as soundtrack.”
Emmanuel Adom Quaye, popularly known as Strika, was recently spotted on the streets of Accra by one Caleb Boye begging for alms. He starred in ‘Beast of No Nation’ and ‘Jungle Justice’ from which he earned a good amount of money.
