Ghanaian rapper, Edem has made a passionate appeal to whom it may concern for politicians to be banned from possessing firearms if musicians are not allowed to do the same following the nasty 2019 VGMA incident between Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale.
The police swiftly stormed Stonebwoy’s and confiscated his gun whilst revoking his license to own one in the meantime. In that vein, Edem is suggesting that the same principle should be applied to politicians.
Explaining his stance further in an interview with SVTV, the rapper noted that artistes are adult who must protect themselves because they have a family hence if the government wants to prevent artists from carrying guns, then ministers must also stop carrying guns.
I Mean You’re An Adult And You Must Protect Yourself. You Have A Family, Kids, House And So You Must Protect Yourself And Your Family Once It’s Licensed. So I Don’t Think They Should Cease An Adult’s Gun Once It’s Licensed Then If So They Should Also Cease Ministers Who Carry Guns Too, Cos All The Ministers, Corporate People Too Carry Guns.”
