Stand-up comedian David Oscar has chided actress Yvonne Nelson and her fellow celebrities who are planning the May 16 #dumsormuststop vigil against the worsening power crisis in Ghana.

Yvonne Nelson and rapper Sarkodie, through their lawyers have written to the Greater Accra regional police commander to notify him of their intentions to lead a protest vigil against government’s handling of the power crisis in the country. Ms. Nelson, who started the social media hashtag #Dumsormuststop, announced on Tuesday that every Ghanaian citizen interested in seeing the problem resolved should join the protest.

However, David Oscar in a Facebook post opines that it is hypocritical for the celebrities to take such stands when they have not offered any ideas to remedy the situation.

He wrote:

“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!”.

The planned #dumsormuststop vigil has received mixed reactions from the populace, particularly, people in the creative arts industry. While some believe it is spot on, others are of the opinion that it is needless.
