Movie producer and the chairman of the Film Classification Committee, Socrates Sarfo, has thrown a jab at Pappy Kojo for his recent frustration regarding his stay in Italy and the government of Ghana’s reluctance to come to his aid to repatriate him to Ghana.
According to the movie producer, Pappy Kojo seemed not to understand the situation at hand especially with what is currently happening in the country referring to the COVID-19
He added that Pappy was probably not aware of the things that the government sought to do for Ghanaians who are stranded abroad hence, his persistent ignorant behavior.
This nudge comes at the back of a recent comment by Pappy Kojo indicating that he would not step foot in the country again because he feels unfairly treated by the Nana Akufo-Addo's government after his pleas for the borders to be opened for his return yielded no positive outcome.
"All those times I cried and Ghana ignored me; I sleep with my kicks on, I drink milk every morning and also doing checkups. I’m not coming back I’m sorry," Pappy Kojo is reported to have said.
But speaking on Accra-based Peace FM's entertainment review on Saturday, Mr Sarfo, told show host by Akwasi Aboagye that he could not fathom the persistent lamentations by the 'Tonga' hitmaker and why he keeps on disturbing the ears of Ghanaians hence nobody forced him to travel.
"Who forced him to go and stay there, did anyone of us force him, no he did and so why is he blaming the government for his struggles and frustration out there?" Mr Sarfo quizzed.
He further stressed that there are ministers and parliamentarians who had also traveled outside to work for the betterment of the country and unfortunately, have also been 'locked up' due to the COVID-19.
He did mention the likes of musician Sarkodie and many others who are stuck in foreign lands but are not complaining.
"Even those that the government sent them for something beneficial to the country including ministers and parliamentarians are not complaining. Sarkodie among many others are all forced to stay out there which is not their will and so why would he alone be disturbing us with his tantrums, it is not by force to come so please stay".
Mr. Sarfo also indicated that, the Government of Ghana is putting measures in place for Ghanaians who want to be repatriated.
