‘I usually tear Psalms 35 chapter from the Bible, soak it in my bath water’ – Shatta Wale

The unconventional ways that Ghanaian dancehall artist Shatta Wale uses to manifest God’s word for protection have been revealed.


Just as popular Jamaican reggae musician Steel Pulse asked fans to ‘Chant a Psalm a day’, Shatta Wale has taken his a notch higher by’soaking and bathing his Psalms’.


Shatta disclosed that he typically tears the Psalm 35 chapter of the New Testament, soaks it in water, and takes a bath with it in an attempt to clarify how he “runs” to the Bible for comfort from life’s setbacks.

The Shatta Movement leader claims that this is a better approach than his prior practice of putting that particular scripture in his mouth.


One of my favourite and longest scriptures is Psalm 35, which I always open when I am anxious. I occasionally teach my followers how to understand Psalm 35. It is a weapon that defends you from attacks on your life, which is why I read it every time. I took a shower with it once. I am the only friend who shreds Psalm 35 from the Bible and soaks in it.


I was given that instruction by God a long time ago. I took a small New Testament with me wherever I went. During those times, I would rip the Psalm 35 page and devour it. I wanted the Bible more than anything else, even though I knew the ink was not good. He stated, “Psalm 35 has been my guide in life,” in an interview with GTV’s Kafui Dey.

Speaking further, Shatta asserted that the majority of his friends worry that he might be desecrating the Bible and that they find this a strange practice.


But he also emphasised that every Christian should maintain their own doctrines and beliefs, warning his followers not to let this practice sway them.


“I tell my friends that even though the Bible is a printed book, it contains the words that I want, even though they do not understand why I tear pages out of it. My only desire is to be filled with the Word of God. Each person holds unique beliefs. He was very clear, “I am not encouraging anyone to go tear up the Bible.”
