One of the biggest things to emerge out of the doom and gloom world of COVD19 has been the deeper adoption of internet platforms that drive digital trends especially by celebrities across the world. Musician and the self-anointed “Fante Van Damme” Pappy Kojo currently in Italy has been having lots of fun with that on social media, from throwing out challenges, giving out funny replies, and more.
Through that he has become known for is his mimicking videos. His first mimic of his fellow artist was Asem’s Beef freestyle and now he has turned his eyes on the African dancehall king Shatta Wale.
Shatta Wale’s live videos are filled with intense emotions, which is a major promotional tool for his brand, music, and fan interactions. He’s been seen to go after his perceived enemies and opponents like Stonebwoy, Sarkodie, and even his own squad the SM Militants group in these social videos.
That’s why it’s delightful to see Pappy Kojo’s rendition of a Shatta Wale piece. From the facial gestures to hand movements, he nailed the emotions and motions, making this mime one of the best you will come across in recent times.
With Pappy Kojo setting the pace, can anyone do a better job than the “Awoa” hitmaker? Use the #MyShattaMime and share your best Shatta Wale mime. Tag @muse_africa (Instagram: @museafrica) and we might just surprise the best person who does it.
