The Ghanaian musician and songwriter from the Western Region, Martin King Arthur, popularly known as Kofi Kinaata, has raised a controversial issue on his official Instagram page. In a video, the Fante Rap God said that because of some of the words in our national song, some Ghanaians do anything they like.
He cited an example using one of our popular national songs titled, "Yɛn ara asaase ni. Ɛyɛ abɔ den den de ma yεn". This literally means "This is our own native land; What a priceless heritage". But according to Kofi Kinaata, some Ghanaians abuse the words, "Our own native land".
This is the reason why some Ghanaians put up their building in any place they like because they have been told in the song that this is their own native land. Kofi Kinaata also said that people also put their kiosks in any place they like because of these same words in our national song contributing to lawlessness in the country.
Do you agree with Kofi Kinaata that these words have effects on why some Ghanaians put up their buildings in any place they like? Share your view.
