Ghanaian rapper, Jerry Anaba, popularly called Okomfo Kwadee in entertainment circles, has asked the President, Nana Akufo-Addo to give some attention to mental health issues in Ghana.
The “Meyere Ne Menpena” hit maker made this submission earlier this week, when a delegation from MUSIGA paid him a visit at the Willing Ways Foundation rehabilitation center in Kumasi.
“I stand in for all the people here, and ask the leaders, especially the president to create awareness for people with mental issues, so they are not neglected. Let’s all pay attention to such people so they feel like they are part of the society”, he said.
He also announced that, he will soon be staging a comeback, which will be geared towards campaigning against drug abuse and its effect on the youth.
“When I return, I am going to be doing more on the effects of drug abuse among the youth”, he added.
The visit by the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), was triggered by recent reports that his family had abandoned him at the rehab centre.
After a long absence from music scenes, Kwadee returned with ‘Fiifii’ and ‘Di Kan’, but was not successful as his condition aggravated and he was taken to the Willing Ways Foundation rehabilitation centre.
Fans of Kwadee have puzzled about the current mental state of the rapper, however, according to the MUSIGA delegation that visited him, he is doing better now than before.
The musician has songs like ‘Aboro ne Bayie’, ‘Ataa Adwoa’, ‘Ka Wo Nan to So,’ among others.
