Shatta Michy, wife of Ghanaian dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale is in trouble with local authorities because of her newly opened Diamond pub.
Earlier this week Graphic reported that, there was controversy at the Diamond Pub and Grill spot at East Legon in Accra last Thursday when a task force from the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) tried to demolish the structure.
The facility was among some structures lying within the East Legon Green Belt zone and which had been earmarked for demolition. The task force had earlier demolished some unauthorized structures and walls in the area. It, however, had to spend several hours trying to demolish the facility following pleas from Madam Michy and some residents not to demolish her facility.
According to Graphic, Madam Michy initially claimed that the keys to the facility were with one of her workers and was waiting to pack out her belongings to enable the task force to pull down the structure. Officials of the AMA, who heeded to her pleas, finally disconnected her facility from the electricity grid and seized her electricity meter. She was given a one-week ultimatum to pull down the structure.
This generated controversy as some officials among the team from the AMA questioned why other people’s structures had been demolished while others were let off the hook.
The Metropolitan Co-ordinating Director of the AMA, Mr Sam Ayeh-Datey, in an interview, said the developers whose structures had been pulled down would be surcharged with the cost of demolition.
Shatta Michy in a Facebook posts, said:
“It’s only In Ghana that a young lady would try to do something for herself , encourage other young ladies to do same no matter how small & she ends up being fought from all angles. Stronger forever”
”I’m 24, I have my businesses , my education, my wonderful family, & im grinding still, there’s money to be made on these streets & nothing will stop me and my fellow young ladies who are willing to make it out here. You can’t break me . Try something else”
She also took a swipe at Hit FM presenters by posting:
