Ghanaian dancehall artiste Shatta Wale has launched a new commercial ride system, Shaxi to reduce the unemployment rate among the youth.
According to Shatta Wale, Shaxi was created from his inspiration to create employment avenues and create a sustainable business focus for the Ghanaian youth.
Speaking on how the initiative was birthed, Shatta Wale wrote on his official Twitter handle:
“Well, let me share this story with you today. Everybody that knows me knows I love the youth of Ghana, and I always want to see them doing well. I want to see the boys and girls in the ghettos move from being unemployed into having gainful employment.
“That’s how the #Shaxi dream was born. My team and I set out to create a sustainable business with a focus on providing employment for the teeming unemployed Ghanaians. That’s our drive and not profits. At the end of the day, we want to make an impact and leave our mark.”
The ‘Taking Over’ hitmaker further stated that even though he is the brain behind the business, it is also a business for all Ghanaians.
According to Shatta, the initiative is a dream come true. He expressed gratitude to his team and all who supported the initiative and fueled its success.
“Shaxi is for not just Shatta Wale and friends. It’s a Ghanaian project for Ghanaians. So let’s all embrace it and make it happen. Thank you for your support, and thank you to the entire team behind the Shaxi project, couldn’t have done this without you. #Shaxi Recreational vehicle. It’s time to ride.”
