Ghanaian rapper, Michael Owusu Addo, known widely as Sarkodie, has broken his silence on the ‘E-Levy’.
‘E-Levy’ has been topical in discussions in Ghana after the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta, hinted at it in parliament a few months ago.
If introduced, Mobile Money users will pay 1.75 per cent on certain transactions.
The majority of Ghanaians have spoken against this—and they have urged influential people like Sarkodie to condemn it—even though the E-Levy bill has not been passed.
Answering a question about his view on the E-Levy, Sarkodie in a post seen by Newshuntermag.com wrote: “I pay a lot of taxes outside and I don’t complain because I’m using avenues they made available to make Money…( it’s only right ) it’s not same here and that’s why we complain not because the “E Levy” is bad . When you broke, a harmless “good morning “ can sound like a tease.”
