Social media backlash has targeted rapper Medikal and Dancehall star Shatta Wale for showering cash on fans upon their return from a triumphant UK concert.

After a sold-out show at the Indigo O2 in the UK on May 3, 2024, which Medikal headlined, the duo landed at Kotoka International Airport on May 14, 2024, to a warm reception.

Videos circulating on social media depict Medikal, born Samuel Adu Frimpong, and Shatta Wale distributing cash to ecstatic fans, even pausing traffic to continue the cash spree.
