According to the 'Wo' hitmaker, it is important that government legalizes the use of 'wee' and finds ways of regulating its usage instead of arresting those who use it.
In an interview on Happy FM, Ras Kuuku said if Africans and Europeans have the same level of wisdom, why is it taking so long for countries in the African continent to legalize the use of 'wee'.
The musician, who is known in real life as Kojo Kurankye, dismissed the myth that suggests that using 'wee' causes mental illness or ultimately gets people to go mad.
“The European’s wisdom is equal to that of the African. But how come they’ve legalised weed and mental illness has not increased because of the use of ‘wee’. This is a misconception we need to clear. ‘wee’ doesn’t cause mental illness,” Ras Kuuku said.
In other news, Ghanaian television presenter and newscaster Serwaa Amihere has won the support of her fans for blasting the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government.
According to Serwaa, the NPP came into power claiming to be against corruption but have become worse than their predecessors.
“For a President who swept to power on the back of anti-corruption, it has been disappointing watching the canker deepen with constant outbreak of scandals.
He hasn’t provided the no-nonsense, all-action leadership against corruption that we were promised.
I honestly cannot recollect one instance where any corruption case was seriously tackled with So corruption for me has been a major downside of this government,” she tweeted.
