Mohammed Ismail Sherif Kwaku Frimpong, also known by his stage name as Black Sherif, has said that there is a very clear rationale behind why protesters are staging their actions.
Some Ghanaian residents have held a strident and disorderly 2-day protest over the nation’s economic hardship. Chaos resulted from the protest as protesters and police fought in an Accra neighbourhood.
About 6 police officers were hurt in the altercation between these two groups, and one demonstrator apparently had an eye injury. In a number of videos, the protestors could be seen throwing stones at the police as well as using tear gas to disperse the crowd.
The “Kwaku the Traveler” hitmaker asked the police to be patient and tolerant with the protesters in order to prevent any kind of fatality during a one-on-one interview on Kastle Entertainment show.
He said; “In all things, we give thanks to God but whoever got affected, we pray for healing for them and their families, and I wish them good because it’s not easy to be involved.”
“But with situations like that I think they should relax for the demonstrators and they should understand them because people don’t act like that for nothing,” he stated.
Black Sherif added, “They were not just sitting quietly and suddenly started doing that so in things like that we call for calm but in all things we pray for healings to those who got hurt through the demonstration”.
