Artiste manager, Lawrence Asiamah Hanson, also known as Bulldog has mocked the Ghanaian Creative Arts Ministry, says they have no better creative thinkers.
He made this comment after realizing how South Africans celebrated Nelson Mandela’s 100th birthday in Johannesburg where popular celebrities were invited from across the globe.
According to him, Dr Kwame Nkrumah was by far a bigger person and achieved greater things as compared to Nelson Mandela’s achievements yet Ghanaians doesn’t value him.
Read his letter below.
“Madam Minister, I hope you are witnessing the happenings in South Africa… #GLOBALCITIZENFESTIVAL… #MANDELA100
Let me just remind you that Nkrumah is BIGGER than Mandela and his standing and dominion on the African continent is second to none…
but you see how Mandela’s people have found a way to honour him through entertainment…
Oh let me also prompt you, South Africa has all it takes to host the world… they did the needful before the ‘wantful’ (if there’s any word like that mpo)
We have two things we can package and sell to the world aside from our wasteful and unbeneficial natural resources…
NKRUMAH & PEACE are Ghana’s biggest selling points.
As wanna head die nu…
I sure say by now CAPTAIN AFEKU dey prepare go buy that franchise too anaa?
A creative ministry with no creative thinkers…”
