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

The mockery follows Stonebwoy’s decision to boycott the Abeka Salahfest because Shatta Wale was billed on the list of performers.

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

Responding to the mockery by Shatta Wale, GSPD noted that such a “primitive statement should not have come from a high-profile personality like Shata Wale.”

The society described that act as “irresponsible” one and called on Ghanaians to condemn the musician’s behaviour.

GSPD cautioned Shatta Wale and demanded that he should retract and apologise to all persons with disabilities and initiate steps to take down the video from social media.

The society also reminded him that making derogatory remarks about a person’s disability is a punishable offence by law with reference to the Disability Act 715.

“We advise the public to embrace persons with disability and be empathetic towards them. “Disability indeed can be anyone’s lot at any given time,” GSPD added.
