Renowned Ghanaian gospel musician, Kwaku Gyasi has said that there’s nothing wrong if travellers abroad wash bowls to survive.
According to him, it is better and noble than getting involved in robbery.
‘I want every Ghanaian to understand that if someone has gotten the opportunity to travel abroad and even if things have become difficult to the extent that the person makes a living out of washing cooking utensils, so far as the person doesn’t steal I feel that is much better.‘
The musician was, however, quick to add that he never got involved in such menial jobs as speculated.
He disclosed in an interview on GBC Radio Central that he was fortunate when he travelled to Canada – he was gainfully employed as a Music Director by his church whilst he continued his education.
‘We should have a positive mindset and stop making mockery of those abroad who do petty jobs to survive. However, when I was in Canada I got the opportunity to further my education and because I’m gifted with the ability to play musical instruments, God didn’t make me do any difficult jobs.’
