Edem says insult rained on David Oscar shows the absence of tolerance even among elites.
Denning Edem Hotor, known in showbiz as Edem has said the insults at David Oscar following the latter’s statement that he will not join the “dumsor vigil” shows the level of intolerance for divergent views among Ghanaians.
The stand-up comedian chided actress Yvonne Nelson and her colleagues in showbiz for planning a vigil against government’s handling of the power crisis in the country.
He stated that it was hypocritical for the celebrities to take such stands when they had not proffered solutions to end the power crisis. “I'm not even gonna be hypocritical and join the #DumsorMustStop trend. “How many of us have tried to conserve energy?
Thanks to our waste, the dams are suffering. Don't get me wrong, I'm a mindless critic of the president JDM, and I understand that there are alternative sources of energy, but do you think that if it was that easy to fix the power crisis, the president would not saved himself the blames and constant harassment? “As a nation, we happen to be fault seekers and less of vision implementers. Dumsor must stop, but your constant whining and whimpering would not act as a magic wand. Period!” Oscar wrote on his Facebook wall.
His comments have been met with invective statements by a section of the public. This, according to rapper, Edem shows the absence of tolerance even among elites. “The attack on David Oscar shows the absence of tolerance for divergent views…Even among elites”, he tweeted.
