Award-winning Ghanaian dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy, in a latest development has expressed his displeasure in current developments in the Volta Region, especially the level of violence that has characterized the activities of the secessionist group, Homeland Study Foundation.
Volta Region has faced some form of uprising in different times within the year after a seccessionist group made claims to that part of Ghana, requesting to be made independent.
In the latest episode of Paul Adom Othcere on his Good Evening Ghana Show, Stonebwoy said that regardless of how any group of people in the Volta Region feels about happenings in the country, there are always better ways of handling things which do not include violence.
“It’s an election year, first and foremost we need peace. All that is happening in the Volta Region I am not happy about because I am a 100% Voltarian who has his roots inside of Togo and beyond.
We can always address our grievances in a better manner than violence. Except it is highly necessary for us to defend ourselves,” the 'Bawasaaba' singer said.
Stonebwoy who hails from the region used the opportunity to appeal to the people of his home region to avoid perpetrating violence which will creating a negative image of the people of the Volta Region and may bring about negative consequences which will be suffered by generations to come.
“We don’t want to continue to have such bad names. It goes a very long way to affect generations even after us because once that mindset is keyed people would carry it along,” he added.
Delving a little bit into politics, Stonebwoy said he expects to exercise his civic duty in the upcoming elections and urged all Ghanaian voters to look beyond what politicians claim and promise, and make a choice that is favourable to their well-being as well as the development of the nation.
