Hiplife musician, songwriter and comedian Patapaa seems to be playing the “no one is above the law” cards this week. The “One Corner” hit maker has expressed worry over restrictions on events in Ghana and has asked politicians to put same restrictions on political rallies if they don’t intend opening up public events soon.
Speaking to Sammy Flex in an interview on Showbiz Agenda on Zylofon 102.1 FM, he lamented about the current condition of artistes and events in the country. “Churches have been opened, restrictions on funerals have been lifted so why are events not going on? Why are artistes not playing shows? They have to lift restrictions on public events so artistes can play shows to make money. People gather at churches now, attend funerals. I am asking that are the people that meet presidential candidates at rallies not more than the crowd that attend events? If they don’t want us to play shows, then they shouldn’t also do political rallies. They should campaign on phones. Just as we do virtual concerts for fans, they should also do same. Yeah because it is not fair at all” he opined.
He added: “This is very bad. It is like giving others opportunities over others. I am not saying this because I am hungry but the work must go on. If not for COVID-19, some of us will be playing shows outside the country. How can you even open airport and close embassies? How do we travel when we have not visited the embassy?” he queried.
Patapaa is currently promoting his singles My Lady featuring AY Poyoo and ‘Adam Konkonsa’ featuring Akwaboah and Gojit.
