Meanwhile, the award-winning dancehall musician has encouraged the youth to venture into agriculture as that can fetch them good income amidst the high unemployment rate in Ghana.

More clarity: “I think it will make sense to have an audience with the President to be able to let him hear what is on the ground and what is actually happening on the ground”
