Ghana’s rap icon Sarkodie has finally come out to submit his thoughts on the campaign. His reaction comes after social media users have called him out to give his thoughts about current leadership issues in the country.
A few days ago, social media saw a tsunami of calls for people in leadership positions to direct the affairs of the country well. With the hashtag #FixTheCountry mostly an agenda being pushed by youths (that is non partisan) has seen a huge followers hip.
There have been calls for movers and shakers in Ghana mostly celebrities to join in the campaign so their voices can be heard more loud.
Prominent of them is multi award winning rapper Sarkodie who many believed did endorsed the current Government.
After about four (4) days of social media protest, Sarkodie has finally come out to submit his thoughts.
This he made on his twitter page
“I’ve always supported #FixtheCountry agenda since beginning of my career through my music. I know they ( politicians and political party followers ) intentionally politicize my opinion ( even when they know it’s the truth ) to save their party, thinking I’m attacking a particular party. I don’t explain myself because people with political ears and eyes will never accept it and try to attack My submission and that has been our biggest problem as a country and that’s one of the main reasons why we are stagnant. We all play a role in building our nation so I support both the #FixTheCountry ( to the leaders ) and #FixYourself ( citizens ) but at this point, leaders ( government ) has more to do for citizens to fix themselves. It takes exceptionally discipline people to try and live right in an all messed up system that frustrates your day to day activities. If you fix the system then you can blame the people 100% for not fixing themselves and that’s why you are leaders . Fixing the country automatically fixes the people … God bless my country Ghana”
