Despite an injunction secured by the police against the #FixTheCountry demonstration which was supposed happen on Sunday, May 9, 2021, multiple award-winning Ghanaian rap artist, Sarkodie has added his voice to the #FixTheCountry campaign.
According to Sarkodie, he has been an advocate of the #FixTheCountry agenda since the inception of his career as a rapper.
He says, “I know they (Politicians and Political Party Follows) intentionally politicize my opinion (even when they know is the truth) to save their party, thinking I’m attacking a particular party.
I don’t explain myself because people with political ears and eyes will never accept it and try to attack My submission and that has been our biggest problem as a country and that’s one of the main reasons why we are stagnant.
We all play a role in building our nation so I support both the #FixTheCountry (to leaders) and #FixYourSelf (Citizens) but at this point, leaders (Government) have more to do for citizens to fix themselves. It takes exceptionally discipline people to try and live right in all messed up system that frustrates your day to day activities.
If you fix the system then you can blame the people 100% for not fixing themselves and that is why you are leaders. Fixing the country automatically fixes the people. God bless my country Ghana.”
