Ghanaian afro-pop songstress Rebecca Acheampong, known in showbiz circles as Becca is likely t become the first Ghanaian musician to donate proceeds from a song to help the fight against Coronavirus, Pulse Ghana reports.
According to the musician who is set to release a new single titled “Overcome” on Friday, May 1, proceeds from the song will go into the COVID-19 Trust Fund set up by the Government of Ghana.

The “Beshiwo” hitmaker made this known through a long Instagram post on Thursday.
“When the going gets tough. That’s when the tough gets going... In the face of adversity, they stood for us.. The wind blew and many trees fell. The earth shook and many times, the grounds almost opened. The skies threatened to fall,
but they only grew stronger and resilient. To the doctors and nurses, To the scientists and pharmacists, To the frontline medical workers, Security and law enforcement... You’re risking your lives for us. Your tenacity and dedication, Competence and diligence, Compassion and love. We say thank you/Medase. The battle is not over, but the victory is assured. With your cooperation and mine, this too shall pass,” Becca wrote.
This is not an official single release but a message of hope, love, resilience, and gratitude to these courageous women and men and to everyone who donated and still donating to this course, in one way or the other... tangible or intangible... May God bless you.
Proceeds from this song will be donated to the COVID-19 Trust fund set up by the Government of Ghana,” Becca added.
