Kwabena Kwabena said, it would have been prudent for government to rather apologize for the failure to tackle the energy problem, instead of rain insults on those who demand answers.
Highlife musician, Kwabena Kwabena, has added his voice to the ongoing demand by celebrities for solutions to ‘Dumsor’
He asked the President, to sit up, and solve the situation which is greatly affecting the life of Ghanaians.
“Dumsor is indeed affecting us and in due course, you will hear from me [on it]…the President must sit up…,” he said.
He revealed that he spends approximately GHC 100.00 on fuel daily, as a result of the persistent energy crisis.
He added that, this daily expenditure and the five percent tax deducted from his income after every show, adds to the reasons he deserves the right to comments about politics in the country.
For the past few days, other celebrities have also taken to their social media pages to address the situation, something former aide to the Chief of Staff, Alhaji Halidu Haruna, did not find very pleasing.
He described celebrities above thirty years and unmarried as ‘irresponsible and prostitutes’ but has however, since, apologized.
However, the Adult Music singer speaking on Accra-based Oman FM, reacted to the insults; saying such comments "shocked" him as he believes it would have been prudent for government to rather apologize for the failure to tackle the energy problem, instead of rain insults on those who demand answers.
“I think they [administrators of this country] should be apologizing everyday to the people…,” he said.
Kwabena Kwabena urged public office holders to see their mandate as service to humankind instead of lording it over the citizenry.
