A man identified as Mohammed Mardah and claiming to be the Chairman of the African Advisory Council to the Bronx Borough President’s office has come to clear the air on the Shatta-Wiyala gaffe.
Mohammed Mardah has taken full responsibility for the misunderstanding that happened in the presentation of Wiyaala’s citation at the SummerStage festival on August 13, 2022.
Wiyala aired her displeasure on Facebook about the SummerState festival organizers undermining her in front of thousands of fans.
She suspected Shatta Wale as the master brain behind this sabotage and questioned the unity he has always been preaching.
Explaining what happened, Mohammed wrote in a post sighted on Facebook: “I want to state categorically and emphatically that! The Bronx Borough President bears NO RESPONSIBILITY for what happened last night at Summerstage 2022. Shatta Wale bears NO RESPONSIBILITY for what happened at Summerstage 2022 in the Bronx.”
”That was MY fault. So, I am hereby rendering an unqualified apology to Wiyaala and her team,” he further noted.
Social media users believe there are still some unanswered questions the organizers and Vanessa L Gibson, the President of The Bronx Borough must clear to put this whole issue to rest.
