My team and I set out to create a sustainable business with a focus on employing teeming unemployed Ghanaians. That’s our drive and not profits. At the end day, we want to make an impact and leave our mark. 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 🚙🚙 It’s time to ride’
