Singer Krymimusic and others call for protection for Emmanuel Nimo
He needs protection!
Protect this guy!
@occupygh, yes true talk.
@occupygh_ imagine they are charging him money before they do the testing for him. Herrrr Ghana Awurade hehe we for come take this guy out of Ghana soon to Europe n see what'll happen hmm.
Future Ghanaian billionaire. Let’s pray no greedy politicians to try to lure him with lies he wants to invest in his business which would end up stealing his hard-earned Wisdom and initiative.
@krymimusic That's the first and most important thing.
The government will sleep on him and give the money to Slay queens, Americans will come for him and make the business big and sell it back to us.
Charlie, we get the minds but the support. I hope the test goes on positive.
Can't we open a Gofundme account to generate the 2K for him as a way of supporting him as a youth? It's about time we embrace and push our own. After all, it's for our own future.
If they send this guy to further his education and expose this bright invention of his, that will be the end of his life.
Something that will benefit the whole nation, they are there charging money. So that money they’re charging wouldn’t it get finished. What is wrong if they test it free for him? I am sure after testing koraaa they will be the first people to use it. Aaah black man, this is the reason why the nation is not developing. Please, I came in peace oooo.
