In the African setting, people name their children after their loved ones to show appreciation for how much they value them. Popular fetish priest Nana Kwaku Bonsam announced that he named his children after Shatta Wale and Sarkodie the love he has for them.

According to the fetish priest, Shatta Wale and Sarkodie are very dear to his heart.

“Shatta Wale and Sarkodie are my favourite artists. That is why I have named my children after Shatta and Sark. My daughter’s name is Yaa Shatta Bonsam, and Sark too.

“It’s official. It’s on their birth certificate. I can show it to you right from my phone,” he told Larry the Oldman on Onua FM’s Anigye mmere show.

He further asserted that his favourite songs are Shatta Wale’s ‘I know my level’, Stonebwoy’s ‘Putuu’, and Sarkodie’s ‘Saara’. Plus he’ll be glad to meet them in person.


“Amongst the musicians, I’ve only met a few. I met Daddy Lumba in Nkoranza at the program and Samini in America. I would love to meet Sarkodie and Shatta. I will be very happy to meet them,” Nana Kwaku Bonsam concluded.
