Four budding musicians who are famed for being part of the originators of Kumerica have teamed up to produce a song aimed at trumpeting the need for peace before, during, and after the December 7 presidential and parliamentary polls.
Kizo Dripz, Naa Sei, Tony Dath, and Rapper Abaaze say it is imperative for all to cherish and protect the peace the country is enjoying and avoid any actions that could put the enviable trait into jeopardy.
In the song titled ‘Asomdwoe’, an Akan word translated as ‘Peace’, the musicians propagate the dos and don’ts at polling stations as communicated by the Electoral Commission and encourage electorates and the general public to heed in order to avert any commotion.
“We want peace; Kumericans are for peace,” they chorused.
