Immediate past United Kingdom’s High Commissioner to Ghana, Mr. Jon Benjamin, has once again renewed his membership as an SM fan.
The Brit diplomat who is a diehard fan of the biggest artist fan base in Ghana, Shatta Movement Empire, right from the get-go has said to hold a high office in the movement.
In a latest tweet he disclosed that, he’s the God father of the multiple award-winning reggae and dancehall artist Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jr affectionately called Shatta Wale’s movement, the ‘Shatta Movement Empire’.
This revelation comes after a user on the microblogging software Twitter platform suggested the outspoken ambassador is the patron of the Shatta Movement.
In a reply within a blink of an eye, proud Jon Benjamin responded saying he is actually the Godfather of the Shatta Movement.
