Satirist, Kwaku Sintim-Misa, popularly known as KSM, has indicated that cancelling entertainment shows supposed to be held prior to and after the November elections will only add to the tension elections come with.

According to KSM, it is advisable for events to be held during that period so as to help reduce tension.

“I think it’s a good opportunity for those of us in entertainment to let Ghanaians understand that the election is not a state of war so maybe we can even help… But once we start cancelling all events, then we are actually adding to the perception that things are dangerous. So I think indirectly, we can fuse into that perception by cancelling events… I believe that those of us in the entertainment industry can even add to the diffusion of this tension by doing what we have to do… At the end of the day, we have the election and get over it… I think that most of the fear is coming from perception and we in the entertainment world can help diffuse that perception,” he said on Hitz FM’s Daybreak Hitz, Tuesday.

Asked whether the tension prior to the 2012 elections affected attendance of his political satire show, KSM replied, “Not at all. And that was the most amazing part… It was one of my biggest box office returns.”

Like every election in Ghana, some have observed that there will be tension before, during and after.
