Young Ghanaian rapper Black Sherif garnered praise for his criticism of the detention of #Occupyjulorbihouse demonstrators, who marched to the streets to express their disappointment to the administration.
His choice of diction in his Twitter post, sighted by 1Family Radio, has been hailed by many netizens.
His remarks follow the police’s detention of protesters who gathered inside a bus at the 37 Military Hospital and decided to carry out the planned peaceful demonstration despite the police requesting an injunction only 24 hours prior to the protest.
The young musician said that he finds it incomprehensible why Ghanaians are treated unfairly for demanding government accountability about the country’s current situation.
He also questioned the administration about how borrowed money is used without being held accountable to the people of Ghana, who gave them the power to take charge of affairs.
“Left the UN Conference in New York right after the president of Ghana’s presentation. I’ve never heard a figure like what he asked for from the UN,’’ he wrote.
“So, if they carry all this money, where them dey take pass?” Hand on my heart, I dey tell you there’s no evidence for all the money these people dey borrow in our name.’’
“And if people, whose struggles you document to go ask for money, want accountability, you send Koti make dey beat them? The Lord knows this battle is ours. Wonna go hear am,’’ he added.
