Ghanaian musician Vera Hamenoo-Kpeda, better known as MzVee, has joined the chorus of those who think Ghana’s economy is in dire straits.
The exorbitant cost of living in Ghana has recently become a source of annoyance for many in the entertainment industry, even those who fervently supported the NPP administration in power under President Akufo-Addo.
A lot of people are dissatisfied with Akufo Addo’s administration since, in their eyes, this is not the Ghana he vowed to bring during his many campaign promises.
MzVee said in a recent interview with Pulse Ghana that she had been using GHC300 to fill the tank of her car but now she now needs about GHC 700 to fill her tank.
She said: “Hardship has definitely increased in Ghana. I think Ghana is part of the top 5 countries since the Ukraine and Russia war that is like going through it. I was filling my tank for about GH300 but now I fill it for close to GH700 so yeah it’s hard in Ghana. I don’t have a good take on E-Levy because I feel like it’s a double taxation situation.”
