He made the point in an interview with Kumasi-based Luv FM as part of his media tour ahead of the launch of his “Reign” Album.
“This time, I’m even releasing more songs but people are not even aware. I’m just trying to make people take their minds off certain things,” he said.
“I’m trying to put controversial stuff in the industry for Ghana to be interesting but the country is becoming hotter and hotter each and every day,” he added.

He appealed to the President to do something to improve the standard of living of Ghanaians.
“I beg the president to do something. Ghanaians are suffering. I just want to say this on air for him to know that I also care about the country. The way he wants Ghana to move is the same way I also want Ghana to move but people are complaining too much. Like there’s no money, businesses are collapsing.”
