Popular figures who have openly criticized Ghana's youth as lazy include Kennedy Agyapong of the NPP and Kwadwo Safo Jnr., CEO of the Kantanka group of firms.
This claim does appear from time to time, but many young people dispute it.
Given those young people from Ghana are in great demand in the West, they have characterized it as unjustified. Justification: They receive compensation for the amount of labor they put in in the form of salaries.
Archipalago, a singer and entertainment critic from Ghana who lives in the United States, disagrees. The controversial figure expresses a different opinion in an interview with Sammy Kay on the Go online show.
Archipalago holds the opinion that young people in Ghana are lazy. Many young people, he said, spend their entire lives mindlessly using social media and the Internet.
Archipalago continued by saying that since the government cannot address every issue, young people must create chances for themselves.
