During the interview, Shatta Wale boasted of maximizing his executive privileges to leave the country despite the nationwide lockdown, he said:
Anywhere his excellency can pass, I can as well. I swear, I carry myself in a way that when I say they (government officials) should write a letter for me, they will give me VVVIP pass, I can even park in a termac and sit on top of the flight. I have privileges around me so when people wonder about how I traveled in spite of the close borders. I just smile. If something is important for Ghana, our leaders will help unless if you don't approach. Our leaders are always there.
Self-acclaimed ‘Dancehall king’ further expressed his personal secrets to maintaining executive relationships and how much of a big deal it was for him to be present in Beyonce’s video collaboration. In his words:
There are a lot of things happening out there that people take for granted. Like for me, when you introduce me to Mr. So so and so, I want to keep a relationship, I want to share ideas so, me shooting a video with Beyonce was koko for me. I had to visit here and there to make it happen.
