Honour the living more than the dead – Lil Win advises government

Honour the living more than the dead – Lil Win advises government

- Actor and musician, Lil Win, has suggested that the government should pay more attention to celebrities who are currently alive

- According to him, this can help with the promotion of locally-manufactured products

One of Ghana’s most popular entertainers. Kojo Nkansah, better known as Lil Win, has cautioned the Ministry of Creative Arts against honouring the dead more than the living.

According to a report by MyNewsGH.com, the celebrated actor and musician argued that Ghana has done little in making use of its celebrities in the promotion of Made-in-Ghana goods.

This, he went on, is in contrast to the government’s desire to ensure that Ghanaians patronize locally manufactured goods.

According to Lilwin, it was wrong for GTP to name a cloth after Ebony after the musician lost her life, as the dead are of little relevance.

“Use us whilst we are still alive. How sensible is it to produce a cloth in our names when we are dead? Look at Manifest; he always brands himself with GTP products, but have you ever seen a billboard of him projecting their brand?", he quizzed.

He added that a country that honours its dead people more than the living ones isn’t on the path to ensure the success of its local products.

Lil Win therefore appealed to the government to take a second look at the how to best make use of Ghanaian celebrities, as the focus isn’t money to be received, but a future that all will be proud of.
