The Ghana Society of the Physically Disabled (GSPD) has expressed concern over a viral video in which Reggae Dancehall artiste Shatta Wale mocked his colleague artiste, Stonebwoy, regarding his disability.

The mockery occurred after Stonebwoy decided to boycott the Abeka Salahfest because Shatta Wale was scheduled to perform.

In the video, Shatta Wale stated, “Stonebwoy, a disabled man, you want to fight me, a strong man? I will kick you.”

In response to Shatta Wale’s mockery, the GSPD stated that such a “primitive statement” should not have been made by a high-profile personality like Shatta Wale. The society described the act as irresponsible and called on Ghanaians to condemn the musician’s behavior.

The GSPD cautioned Shatta Wale and demanded that he retract his statement, apologize to all persons with disabilities, and take steps to remove the video from social media.

Additionally, the society reminded him that making derogatory remarks about a person’s disability is a punishable offense under the Disability Act 715. The GSPD advised the public to embrace persons with disabilities and show empathy towards them, as disability can affect anyone at any time.
