Music icon Okyeame Kwame has waded into the protest staged by residents of Adentan over the unavailability of footbridges.
Speaking on the Zone on Starr FM on Friday, the ‘Rap Doctor’ said the chaotic protest shows signs of hardship in the country. He believes the hardship in the country is as a result of the economic situations around the globe.
“I think the nation is becoming a little hard because of the global economic situation. Britain is in Brexit, Europe is suffering herself so instead of sending their money to Africa, and they send it to Greece.
America is suffering, they have a bad leader. All these things are affecting our economy. So I think the politicians should come up and have a dialogue with the people again,” he noted.
The death of a 19 year old female student on the Madina-Adentan Highway in Accra on Thursday, is reported to have triggered angry residents set tyres ablaze on the road.
However, the protest has yielded some positive results as government has given an indication that works on the footbridges will begin as early as next week.
Okyeame Kwame recently launched his “Made In Ghana” album and it features 10 different artists from all the 10 regions of Ghana and picks different sounds and sights from all over the country and is set in the post-independence era.
He has been appointed as ambassador for the ‘Made in Ghana’ campaign of the Ministry of Trade and Industry, with his song being adopted as the theme song for the campaign.
The campaign is aimed at encouraging Ghanaians to patronize made-in-Ghana goods and services.
