APlus blasts Ghanaians over Akufo-Addo’s “plagiarized speech”

Published

on

 
Controversial Ghanaian musician has yet again emerged with another controversial posturing as he chided Ghanaians for accusing President of plagiarizing sections of the inaugural speeches of US Presidents, Bill Clinton and George Bush.
Social media went rife Saturday, January 7, as several persons criticized the newly elected President for having disgraced the country by lifting his inaugural speech from previous ones delivered by the former US Presidents.
Musician A Plus however thinks Ghanaians are over dramatizing something he describes as a “mere human error”. According to him, it was simply an omission on the part of the President, one he says is evident seeing that he credited previous quotes to the original authors. He added that President Akufo- Addo lifted those words in relation to current trends in Ghana.
He accused critics of being bias by focusing only on the errors in the speech instead of directing their attention to the great words contained in the speech, asking probing questions that will lead to an eventual growth in the country and rallying behind the President to push for development in the country.
“who said the speech is George Bush', he also took it from a source. Nana Addo quoted everything else; Kwame Nkrumah once said, JB Danquah once said, he only forgot to mention George Bush, is he not human to forget? ….The speech is a great one, it relates to our lives, Instead of taking the sense in the speech, we are talking about plagiarism….we should be questioning the probability of the promises being actualized and helping him actualize them…..”
The President in his speech at the inauguration ceremony Saturday stated, “”I ask you to be citizens: citizens, not spectators; citizens, not subjects; responsible citizens building your communities ……..and a nation of character.”
Checks reveal that Former US President George Bush said same in the last 6 paragraphs of his inaugural speech.
“What you do is as important as anything Government does. I ask you to seek a common good beyond your comfort, to defend needed reforms against easy attacks, to serve your Nation, beginning with your neighbor. I ask you to be citizens: Citizens, not spectators; citizens, not subjects; responsible citizens building communities of service and a nation of character.
Following this, Press Secretary to the President, Eugene Arhin rendered an apology stating an oversight as the reason for the unfortunate blunder. He added that failure to acknowledge the source of the quote like he did for previous ones from Dr. JB Danquah, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and the Bible was not a deliberate act.

Sister Derby

On Wednesday, February 28, 2024, a bill against homosexuality was unanimously approved by Ghana's parliament.

“After three long years, we have finally passed the Human Sexual Rights and Family Values Act,” said Sam George, one of the main sponsors of the bill on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Introduced in 2021, the bill criminalizes not only relationships between LGBTQ people but also individuals who advocate for LGBTQ rights.

The bill has been passed by the Ghanaian Parliament, but it still needs the president's assent to become law.

Already, there a lot of reactions to the passing of the bill, with many people expressing diverse opinions.

While some people believe it is right to criminalize the act, others, including the CDD, have publicly condemned the act.

Amid the reactions, Ghanaian singer, who is known on record to be a vocal spokesperson for the rights of LGBTQ people has also come out to lament and described Ghana as a failed state.

In a post as a reaction to a report that the South African police has arrested the people who murdered rapper AKA, stated that Ghana is yet to find the murderer of Ghanaian music exective, Fennec Okyere after so many years.

She added that instead of the leaders of the country trying to get the country to the level of South Africa, they are rather emulating a country like Uganda.

Published

Epixode

Dancehall artiste, says he is very open to doing campaign songs for any political party that approaches him.

According to the musician, he will not hesitate to take such an offer regardless of the polarised nature of Ghanaian politics.

However, said he will reserve the right to compose the song devoid of interference from the political party.

He indicated that, he would only engage in projects that promote and inspire hope in the Ghanaian populace “not necessarily politics”.

Speaking on Joy Prime's Celeb Biz, the dancehall artiste said; “There are disadvantages, but it is work. It's only in this part of the world that celebrities are found wanted for making their political affiliations public. But if a political party comes to me for an anthem knowing that the message is positive, I would do it. Not to give the people hope and later be disappointed.”

Epixode is concerned about how divisive the country has become, making it difficult for artistes to express their views on pertinent issues bothering the country.

He revealed that some of his colleagues in the creative industry have been maligned as a result of expressing their opinions on national policies.
