Stonebwoy, a Ghanaian dancehall artist, has released a song in support of the #FixTheCountry movement.
The movement, which is primarily made up of youth, is calling for better living circumstances and government accountability through effective mechanisms.
Stonebwoy’s song “Outside” is a clarion cry for residents to be steadfast in their pursuit of a country worthy of calling home.
Prior to the release of the new track on July 1, the outspoken singer took to social media to express his displeasure with the execution of two people of Ejura by security forces while protesting the murder of a social activist a few days earlier.
“Kaaka didn’t have to die,” Stonebwoy agreed, adding, “Kaaka didn’t have to die.” He was merely pushing for the betterment of his fellow citizens’ lives, including those who murdered him. He was assassinated for refusing to remain a bystander.
The murders have been widely condemned, with many demanding for the culprits to be brought to justice.
He went on to say, “His compatriots in Ejura didn’t have to be attacked.”
Meanwhile, President Akufo-Addo has ordered Interior Minister Ambrose Dery to launch an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the deaths of two people.
In addition, the President gave the Minister 10 days to submit a thorough report on the investigation.
