Ghanaian hip-hop and hiplife artiste, Pappy Kojo, is crying out to the Ghanaian Government to come to his rescue as he is stranded in Italy where the coronavirus pandemic is spreading at a fast pace.
A few weeks ago, Ghanaian artiste, Pappy Kojo took to Twitter to announce that he has been stuck in Italy after thousands of people were infected by the coronavirus.

The death toll from the coronavirus outbreak in Italy has moved from 627 on Friday, March 20, 2020, to 4,032, which is the largest daily rise in absolute terms since the pandemic hit the country a month ago.

On Thursday, Italy, a country with 60 million citizens, recorded more deaths from the coronavirus than China, the source of the epidemic with a population over 20 times larger.

Living in this fear, the musician pleaded with the government to evacuate all Ghanaian citizens in the country.

“ I’m not safe, I live just across a busy street and people keep using that road every minute which is not safe for me, I’ve been calling out to the government [President Akufo-Addo and his ministers] yet no response, I’m a Ghanaian and I’ve done a lot for this country in terms of creative arts.

“The Ghanaian Embassy in Italy recently reached out to inform me about the death of some two Ghanaians residing in Italy which I told them I’ve heard the news.

"Sincerely I’m not safe, I have something to feed on now but I’m afraid I might soon run out of food." Pappy Kojo told MzGee on Accra-based 3FM.

Aljazeera Network reports until Friday, Italy had never recorded more than 475 deaths in a single day, while China, where the contagion has slowed sharply, has never reported more than 150.
