“Filth has engulfed the country to our national shame. This is troubling because a healthy environment is a healthy nation. All media houses, private sector entities, and stakeholders must join the campaign to rid the country of filth as was the case with the war on illegal mining last year.”
These were the words of Ghanaian reggae musician of international repute, Rocky Dawuni who has expressed his quest to help keep Accra clean.
Rocky, who is a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador for the environment in Africa, in an interview with AJ Sarpong on Citi TV’s ‘Hall of Fame’ said, he is ready to assist in making Accra the cleanest city in Africa.
“Having this designation this year, I’m gonna go sit with the Mayor of Accra and discuss how together we can help keep the environment clean,” he disclosed.
He added that he was at the Geneva Conference of Clean Air where he performed for the world leaders who were gathered and also had interaction with some mayors across the world.
He, however, intimated that the responsibility of keeping the environment clean is not the preserve of only government.
“Government can put out ideas but when the people to take it up and keep it going are not willing to support, it won’t succeed. Government is not all-seeing eye and all-doing head. The people are the government. So once you miss the equation of the people within the bigger idea there is no long-lasting impact on the ground,” he noted.
Rocky Dawuni is currently in Ghana to shoot videos for his upcoming album which has been scheduled to be released on the 8th of March.
The African Reggae legend Rocky Dawuni has officially signed up to the African biggest music library, Play Africa for online scream of his yet to be released album and subsequent ones.
The focus is to have all songs ever recorded by the reggae legend to be listed on the African biggest music library and streaming service.
