According to the neo soul vocalist, songwriter, performer, the energy crisis has brought unbearable situations in the life of the Ghanaian - a reason why all should be present at the vigil.
Jane Afia Boafowaa Yahaya Awindor, known in showbiz as Efya has called on Ghanaians to join the ‘dumsor vigil’.
According to the neo soul vocalist, songwriter, performer, the energy crisis has brought unbearable situations in the life of the Ghanaian. She is optimistic that there would be an improvement if the authorities are made to feel the frustrations of the populace.
“If you are feeling the effects of the erratic power supply, then you need to be there. It is time we started speaking up, let them know that we are not happy with what is going on. It is our country and we have to fight for it. There are people dying, hospitals don’t have lights to do operations, mothers are delivering in the dark, even the hospital that is supposed to be safe is not safe”.
The May 16 #DumsorMustStop vigil, which will be held at Green Park opposite the Villagio at the Tetteh Quarshie Interchange, according to organisers, is a non-partisan event which seeks to give an amplified voice of the many Ghanaians who are afflicted by the phenomenon of the current power cuts in the country.
Celebrities expected to join the May 16 vigil include Yvonne Nelson, Sidney, Ama K. Abebrese, DKB, Kweku Elliot, D-Black, Eddie Watson, Becca, Deborah Vanessa, Efya, Kwaw Kese, E.L, Nikki Samonas, Van Vicker, XO Senavoe, Confidence Haugen and many more.
