Ghanaian musician, Ofori Amponsah, has implored Ghanaians to stop celebrating the dead more than the living.
The famous Highlife musician bemoaned Ghanaians celebrating the dead more than the living during a discussion with Nana Ama McBrown on Onua Showtime.
He said Ghanaians should not wait for people to die before they celebrate them.
“Sometimes people want you to die before they celebrate you and say oh as for this guy he was good. I really don’t like funerals that much, so I rarely attend.
“I believe in celebrating the living. If someone wants a cup of water, offer it to them, don’t wait for them to leave this earth before you go and buy stuff for their funeral,” the ‘Nyame Ama’ singer stated.
“You can ask someone for 1 cedi and they’ll not give you but wait and let me die, they’ll find large sums of money to buy a coffin or give donations, I don’t understand this behaviour, we really need to celebrate the living,” Ofori Amponsah added.
Ofori will celebrate his 25 years in music in 2024.
