A driver who has identified himself as Liman Akwara shocked onlookers when he cut short his trip to meet his idol Shatta Wale at Hitz FM, Friday.
He was transporting a minibus full of passengers to Accra from Accra New Town when he made an abrupt stop in front of the Joy FM building because he saw the musician entering the premises.
In a bid to finally meet his icon, Limann left his car in the middle of the road and later directed his passengers to get down and ordered his conductor to return their fare to them.
A number of obviously angry passengers insulted him but he turned a deaf ear to their harsh words.
Mr. Akwara who has tattooed the dancehall singer on his back told Myjoyonline.com that he has been waiting for “this moment all my life”.
After drawing the attention of members of Shatta Wale’s team, the starstruck driver was finally led to see the singer who was in the Hitz FM studio for an interview with Andy Dosty.
Overwhelmed with emotion, the driver broke in tears and prostrated before the musician who was happy to see him as well.
Mr Limann Akwara revealed that he lost his mother this morning but seeing Shatta Wale in person has assuaged his grief.
Later in his interview with the host of Daybreak Hitz, Andy Dosty, Shatta expressed shock at the passion of his fan.
“You know me when I cry my face is not nice. In life, this is why I want to show everybody love because it’s nice to love.
“When I see people like this doing this to me, sometimes I ask myself, who at all is Shatta Wale?”
“I keep asking myself questions. I just want to help and see if he’s okay. You can imagine where people like him are from. Look at the tattoo on his back. That’s why I pray for God to bless us so we also bless some people. I don’t want to cry , don’t clean my make-up,” he said with teary eyes.
