Shatta adds that he wants the Nigerian politician to accept him as his son. “You excellency everyone says I look like you ,so please come and take your son from Ghana ok lol,” he said.
In a tweet that is going viral, he added that “they always say my father won’t come for me ,so please come for me so perform for u one of my songs Thank you My president ,May you live long Dad“.

The incoming Nigerian President is yet to react to this post. On 1 March 2023, INEC declared Tinubu the winner of the 2023 presidential election.
He was declared president-elect after he polled 8,794,726 votes to defeat his opponents. His runner-up Atiku Abubakar of the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) polled 6,984,520 votes.
