Reacting to the accusations on his social media handles, Shatta Wale expressed his frustration and disappointment with those condemning him without knowing the full story. He emphasized that his mother’s decision to bring their family issues into the public eye has caused him significant distress.

“I’m very disappointed in my mother for publicly making those accusations against me. She has tarnished my name to my uncles and the rest of the family. She is bringing our issues to the public for me to be criticised. We don’t handle family issues like this,” Shatta Wale stated.

He went on to detail the support he has provided for his mother over the years, aiming to counter the narrative of neglect. “I gave my mother 4 cars and rented a house at an estate for her. You do not know about these things yet you talk nonsense about me always. She doesn’t appreciate all the good things I did for her,” he explained.
