Multiple award-winning Reggae/Dancehall artiste, Ras Kuuku, known in real life as Kojo Kurankye has joined a host of Ghanaian most celebrated personalities who have expressed their disappointments in the John Mahama-led government over their failure to end the erratic power supply currently facing the country.

In an exclusive interview with Pulse.com.gh, the "Gyene" hit maker aggressively stated that his name should be changed to 'aponkye' (Akan name for a goat), should he participate in the forthcoming Ghana's general election.

"I will never vote (in the 2016 general election), I tell you. How can I vote for someone who can't work for me. It's not easy to walk under the sun from 7:00 am - 5:00 pm just to find job and at the end ,the government disappoints us. All they know is promises after promises," he said.

Rating the overall performance of the incumbent government, the 2013 BASS Awards' "Reggae Artiste of the Year"  award winner stated categorically that the government has done absolutely nothing for the country as compared to Dr. Kwame Nkrumah's regime.

"They've done nothing for the country. I will give them 26%. Look at the way they are treating mother Ghana. In 1950s when the nation hasn't developed to this level, Dr. Nkrumah was able to serve the whole country with electricity. We always had light," he stated.

Touching on the negative impacts the power crisis has had on musicians work, he stated "When you pay directors to shoot a video, they don't due to lack of electricity. I am even standing in front of a recording studio but I can't record due to light off. We can't promote shows (on TVs, Radio and Social media) because people will miss the adverts which could lead to low turn up," he lamented.

Ras also stressed that, come Saturday, May 16, he will join the Yvonne-Sarkodie-led #DumsorMustStop demonstration and will subsequently release a new track titled "Omo De No Light off" to draw the government's attention to the power crisis facing the country.
