Just as the internet predicted, Shatta Wale has come out with guns blazing against his critics who are calling for his head over the infamous Hajia4Reall case.
This online portal earlier reported that Ghanaian social media influencer Mona Faiz Montrage, popularly known as Hajia4Reall, has been extradited from the UK to the US for allegedly defrauding elderly, single Americans and American women of over $2 million in a twisted singles scam heart, federal prosecutors said Monday.
Mona Faiz Montrage, 30, of Accra, Ghana, appeared in federal court in Manhattan days ago for her alleged involvement in a series of romance programs targeting elderly people who lived alone, prosecutors said.
She has pleaded not guilty to the charges and is expected to be released in the coming days on $500,000 bail with a GPS ankle monitor, her attorney confirmed to The Post.
Montrage — who at one point had around 3.4 million followers on her Hajia4Reall Instagram page — was involved with a group of West African con artists who assumed false identities to make people think they were in a relationship from at least 2013 to 2019 using emails, text messages and social media messages, the feds said.
The scammers would then get victims to wire them money under false pretenses — such as helping move gold into the U.S. from overseas, to settle a bogus FBI investigation and aid payments to bogus U.S. military officers in Afghanistan, court documents allege.
In one case, Montrage allegedly tricked a victim into sending her $89,000 through 82 wire transfers under the guise of helping out at her father’s farm in Ghana, court documents allege.
She tricked the person into believing the couple had married by sending them a tribal marriage certificate using her real identity after a series of phone conversations, the filing alleges.
Montrage also received money from several others who were defrauded by fraudsters in her network, prosecutors allege.
In all, Montrage made $2 million in funds the group stole from victims into bank accounts it held in the Bronx and elsewhere, including one opened in the name of 4Reall Designs, an alleged clothing company.
Days after news of his best friend Hajia4Reall’s arrest for a romance scam dominated social and mainstream media, Shatta Wale unleashed all the vitriol in his veins by unleashing his usual ferocity on the internet targeting those calling for his arrest.
According to Shatta Wale, authorities at the Kotoka International Airpot should investigate drug smuggling activities involving Ghanaian artistes traveling outside the country while reacting to the current issue for the first time.
In this new development, during a Facebook Live video, the leader of the Shatta movement vehemently denied any involvement in fraudulent activities and expressed his irritation at being associated with such allegations.
He questioned his motivation for such illegal activity, claiming that influential Ghanaians were eagerly awaiting his arrest because of his notoriety.
“When they arrested Hajia 4Reall, some stupid people in this country instigated the FBI to arrest Shatta Wale. Your mother, your father, your mother again, your father again,” he said
Additionally, Shatta Wale said that the Kotoka International Airport is aware and is monitoring the drug smuggling of various Ghanaian musicians and entertainers. He alleged that airport officials were aware of the illegal activities of several Ghanaian artistes who were smuggling drugs out of the nation.
“I was once told that there are Ghanaian artists who are smuggling cocaine out of the country and the airport is tracking them. The airport knows, go and ask them how many artists they know are traveling with coca!ane,” he revealed.

WATCH: We both have daughters, we shall see- Yvonne Nelson tells Sarkodie after he ‘insult£d’ her in new song
Yvonne Nelson has swiftly reacted to the new diss song aimed at her by her former lover Sarkodie over some claims she made about him in her popular autobiography, I am not Yvonne Nelson.
In a new song called Try Me, the legendary rapper presented his version of the events, claiming that even though he wasn’t ready at the time, he wanted her to keep the child but Yvonne refused on the grounds that she was in school.
Sarkodie talked about how he was in love with Yvonne Nelson for real, but it later turned out that he was probably only one of many guys who Yvonne had lined up like Cuban links.
He claimed that he had intended to keep that element of his life a secret until after his death, but he now feels compelled to do it because Yvonne Nelson disseminated a lie that serves her interests.
“I’m not going to lie, we had a thing. First, I thought we had a think until I had the hint that there were many guys. I tried to stay away but then you came that you were pregnant. But then I wasn’t ready but I told you to keep it.
“You told be you were schooling so you needed to complete it but till today, I don’t believe it. I told you to let my doctor take care of you and you sent a text later that your friend has recommended a one of the best doctors…
“So don’t you make it seem like I was the one pushing you for abortion. Baby girl make you no try me”, he raps on Try Me.
The song, as expected, became viral online. The actress was drawn to this, and she quickly refuted several of his assertions.
“Insults won’t work Michael, Respect womanhood. I’m happy the world gets to see how you are playing this and the real you. Young women get to learn from this. You would get the applause for a rap. still doesn’t change the truth,” she posted.
