Ghanaian musicians who have been stuck outside the country due to the closure of Ghana’s borders, as part of measures to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, have incessantly called on the government to open the borders to allow them to come back home.
Reggae/dancehall musician, Samini, who is also currently stuck in Canada after a show prior to the lockdown, has stated that coincidentally, he has been having a family time abroad since Ghana’s borders were closed.
The ‘Linda’ hitmaker told Andy Dosty on Hitz FM’s Daybreak Hitz on Friday, 29 May 2020 that the move by the government to close the borders was in good taste, no matter how much “pressure his fellow colleagues mount on the government” because it had prevented the possible hike in imported cases in the country.
The Pebilii Naa was of the view that the pressure from his colleagues was not as strong as the one put on the government by the deadly implications of the COVID-19 pandemic.
He, however, commended Ghanaians, as a whole, for properly managing the COVID-19 pandemic so far.
“I think, so far, across Africa, we are doing, if not the best, we are one of the best in managing COVID-19 pandemic,” he added.
