John Dumelo has come out with a hammer and sickle to attack the COVID-19 virtual concert held about a week ago.
The concert came off last week Monday and was officially a part of the launch of the COVID-19 tracker app.
It has generated a lot of controversy in the aftermath – case in point John Dumelo launching a barrage of missiles at government for organizing it.
According to the actor turned politician, it was a needless event and a waste of taxpayer money at a time of extreme need among Ghanaians.
“…Look, we’re in crisis; the government wants to launch an application to help COVID-19 and they’ve also gone to organize a concert, I mean it’s totally needless. It would have been more helpful if they had even invested that money used to organize the concert to, perhaps, buy more PPE or pay more allowances to the health personnel or used it for something more practical related to the COVID-19 crisis.” Dumelo fired on Accra Fm this past weekend.
“The musicians who performed, it’s their business, they were doing the job they were assigned, so, I don’t blame the musicians, that one it’s not a problem. I just blame the organizers for setting up that concert.
“I don’t know how much they spent but at the end of the day, what is the point? People are sick, people need food, people need things, people are dying and they say they want to organize a concert to launch an app? What will the app also do? It’s pointless and needless.” Dumelo concluded.
