Renowned Ghanaian gospel singer Nana Yaw Boakye, widely known as MOG Music, has weighed in on the ongoing demonstrations in Ghana being organized by Democracy Hub dubbed #OccupyJulorbiHouse.
While many celebrities, including Efia Odo, Kelvyn Boy, and Efya Nokturnal, have expressed their support for the protests, MOG believes the protest for a better Ghana is in the right direction; however, he noted that the citizens are partly to be blamed for the hardships we find ourselves in.
In a tweet posted on Friday, September 22, 2023, MOG Music emphasized that the government in power is a result of the choices made during elections and suggested that citizens should not solely place all the blame on the government.
In his tweet, the award-winning gospel singer stressed the need to break the cycle of power between the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
The ‘MALA’ crooner added that he believes that by doing so, politicians will become more attuned to the concerns of the people, realizing that Ghanaians are not willing to accept the status quo.
As much as we want to blame government for the hardship, we are also to be blamed. Our situation is a reflection of how we voted. The day we break the cycle of NPP, NDC these politicians will wake up to the reality that we are not fools. #OccupyJulorbiHouse#FixTheCountry— MOGmusic (@MOGmusic_) September 22, 2023
MOG‘s perspective underscores the importance of citizen engagement and responsibility in shaping the country’s future. While acknowledging government accountability, he encourages Ghanaians to be mindful of their role in the democratic process and the impact of their choices on the nation’s direction.
His tweet partly serves as a call to action, urging citizens to take a more active role in shaping the political landscape of Ghana and working towards the improvement of the nation.
