Highlife artiste Nat Brew, popularly known as Amandzeba,
has condemned the act of vilifying leaders when they are alive and singing their praises when they are no more.
The ultimate prize winner at the 7th International Alphine festival held in Saas Fee, a tourist village in Switzerland has expressed worry over how Ghanaians celebrate their leaders adding that “in our part of the world, what we mostly do is to mourn the dead whom we have helped to castigate when they are alive”.
In an interview on Gold Power Drive on Monday, Amandzeba intimated that “we all have two sides as human beings which are the positive and negative sides. People like Kwesi Pratt Jun. who saw the good side of the late president were tagged as enemies”.
He further acknowledged the efforts of the late president in building a better Ghana contesting that “this was a visionary person who wanted to build a better Ghana for all. If we can appreciate others for what they are doing, there will not be the need to fight”.
He also noted that 99.9 percent of Africans celebrate their leaders when they are dead adding that “in our various endeavors let us highlight those who are contributing to this country”.
Amandzeba further pledged his support for President Mahama noting that “I will be very glad to celebrate President John Dramani Mahama because I have realized that he is competent and capable of leading this country to achieve the better Ghana agenda. If we don’t want president Mahama, who else do we want? It is time Africa celebrate her leaders when they are still alive”.
