Rapper Strongman has debuted a new song titled Fix It amid the ongoing #FixTheCountry campaign.
Over the past week, Ghanaians have been protesting virtually against the government led by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo over social and developmental issues in the country.
The new song by the rapper formerly signed to Sarkodie's SarkCess Music can be interpreted as his contribution to the discourse. Strongman points out the need for the government to make a conscious effort to address the issues raised by the citizens.
He also encourages citizens to do their bit to help in the development of the country. Some social media users have been reacting to the song.
"Volume no w) f)m afe wei Okyeame obiaa hia one Mic “ the Wordplay," commented Gabby Sarkcess.
Joseph K. Manu added: "For me to comment on YouTube for the first time, it means this track is on fire. Full of wisdom, knowledge, and understanding."
Meanwhile, Ernest Owusu Bempah, the Director of Communications for the Ghana Gas Company Limited has expressed remorse for his heavy-handed comments targeted at the #FixTheCountry supporters.
Days ago, Bempah referred to the conveners of the campaign as "social misfits, self-styled comedians who [dabble] in social media politicking and people [who] can't even fend for themselves let alone fix their boring life."
He also claimed that celebrity supporters of the cause live fake lives: “What exactly have these celebrities fixed by themselves apart from their fake social media lifestyle and living on borrowed glory?"
In a Facebook post seen by YEN.com.gh, Bempah offered an apology to those he called names because of #FixTheCountry campaign saying he "is not against any free-thinking Ghanaian involved in any legitimate exercise to get government accountable to the people."
