M?nsa, a member of the FOKN Bois band, has urged musicians to sing about social issues and challenges to drive change. The artiste, who has recently stirred a lot of controversy with his partner Wanlov, says Ghanaian musicians should limit singing about love and women and focus on issues to bring change to the masses.
“In a country like Ghana where politicians do not care about the citizenry, the only powerful tool to get to them and bring to bare the social issues and challenges is music but it hurts that most Ghanaian musicians who are super talented do not even know the power of their http://www.ambien-online-now.com craft and skill and would therefore sing all about women and love,” he lamented in an interview on Kapital Radio.
“We have the power to change the fortunes of our country but we are just lazy. We need to do something different than just jumping to the bandwagon.”
Buttressing his argument and a call for the Ghanaian musician to be conscious of the tool they possess, he quoted Nigerian Afro beat legend Fela Kuti who once said, “the African musician should not sing about love, because we have more important things to talk about”.
