But, in a Twitter post sighted by GhanaWeb on May 8, 2021, the rapper who might have read some of the posts targeted at him made some revelations.

He wrote: “I’ve always supported #FixTheCountry agenda since the beginning of my career through my music. I know they (politicians and political party followers) intentionally politicize my opinion (even when they know it’s the truth) to save their party, thinking I’m attacking a particular party.”

A host of celebrated personalities including actress Yvonne Nelson, Afia Odo, Lydia Forson, Wanlov among others have added their voice to calls for proper management of the country’s affair on the part of the government.

Notwithstanding, some persons have blamed citizens for the woes of the nation, demanding that individuals rather fix their attitude if they wish to see the country progress.

“We all play a role in building our nation so I support both the #FixTheCountry (to the leaders) and #FixYourself (citizens) but at this point, leaders (government) has more to do for citizens to fix themselves,” Sarkodie added.
