The Ghana Export-Import (Exim) Bank is teasing the release of a song by its brand ambassador Shatta Wale.
The song titled I AM MADE IN GHANA drops on Friday, September 18, 2020, and is expected to be rolled out under the Exim Bank’s which ‘Made-In-Ghana 4P’ campaign.
The aim of the campaign is to encourage Ghanaians to support products made in Ghana and to make local industries competitive. It focuses on four thematic areas namely; produce, promote, purchase and prosper.
As part of the campaign and in tandem with GEXIM’s support for the Creative Industry, the Bank has contracted brand ambassadors and influencers including Shatta to promote the campaign.
In a post on its official Facebook page, the bank posted;
The relationship between Shatta and Exim Bank came to light recently at the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) of Parliament when Kumbungu MP Ras Mubarak raised concerns over a GH₵2million payment to Shatta Wale (known privately as Charles Nii Armah Mensah).
The MP said it was not prudent for Exim Bank to pay such an amount to an artiste to promote products made in Ghana.
