Controversial musician and political critic A-Plus is very disappointed in the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), a party he openly campaigned for.
A-Plus, a close friend of President Nana Ado Dankwa Akufo-Addo, is not happy with the performance of the NPP government.
According to him, he is disappointed in some people in government and the failure of the party to fulfil some of its campaign promises to Ghanaians.
He cited the recent decision by the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture to invest $4.5 million to host the All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) in Ghana as one of the worst decisions taken by the ministry.
The controversial musician said “the industry is collapsing. Shirley Frimpong-Manso has put so much into sustaining this industry” and instead of the ministry supporting her, they are giving money to AFRIMA.
He alleged that the money was given to AFRIMA under the guise of boosting tourism. “What are they coming to watch; the motorway that has not got streetlights?”
“Your own people are crying” but they have given money to AFRIMA, who he alleged that brought foreigners to the country to organise the event.
“I hate it when Ghanaians are not given the same opportunity that is given to outsiders,” a peeved A-Plus said.He fumed that, “You even have venues to hold events” but can give money to AFRIMA.
