Highlife sensation, Kuami Eugene, has clarified his position on the #FixTheCountry campaign on social media.
Ghanaians have besieged President Nana Akufo-Addo and his government to fix the many problems in the country.
The campaign which started on Twitter weeks ago has gathered momentum outside social media with many putting pressure on the government to solve problems ranging from the economy, power, roads, to health.
Amid the campaign, the Dollar On You hitmaker ruffled feathers with a comment that suggested that there has to be a change in the behaviour of the citizens first.
The singer's comment brought him a lot of backlash with former TV3 Presenter, Bridget Otoo, among those who slammed him for his comment about #FixTheCountry.
But in an exclusive chat with YEN.com.gh, the reigning VGMA Artiste of the Year has explained his statement was taken out of context.
According to him, his 'fix your mentality' comment was meant for every Ghanaian to work on themselves first before going at others and not as a response to the campaigners.
"If I say fix your mentality first, it's with regards to anywhere we find ourselves, individually. So we fix yourself in your job, homes, workplaces before anything [and] I said that prior to what is going on.
"I wasn't even talking to the president. I wasn't talking about what is going on. I was talking about people trying to feed into other people's life. Just fix yourself," Eugene explained to YEN.com.gh.
Touching on the fix the country campaign, Eugene pointed out that living conditions in Ghana are not the same for different people and that makes it difficult for everybody to sing that chorus.
"People have problems and others are okay regardless [of] what they think others are going through. So it depends. If someone is saying fix the country now, someone is somewhere okay. It will not be the same," he said.
He, however, added that just like many Ghanaians, he also wants certain things fixed in the country.
For him, the Coronavirus situation is what he needed to be fixed as soon as possible because it was affecting his job as a musician.
'What I want to be fixed right now is Coronavirus because we are suffering. My job is important to me so if I something to be fixed, [it is for] the economy to be fixed towards the direction where we can all be okay regardless coronavirus," he told YEN.com.gh.
