“Rape has always been one of the leading problems worldwide. But how often do we hear victims speak up. I set up my foundation to help victims of sexual abuse to speak up as well as bring perpetuators to justice”, he stated.
The musician who is fuelled by empathy says the foundation, which was birth from his song titled, “Obimbra”, built upon the Akan word which means cry for help, is to provide physical, mental and financial support to people who suffer sexual abuse.
