Rapper and CEO of Black Avenue Music, D-Black , has lamented the state of the country’s economy while expressing regrets for supporting the current Akufo-Addo-led administration.
He claims that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta of Ghana’s New Patriotic Party (NPP) misled the public by making false remarks.
He’s referring to a moment in 2017 when the government stated that some taxes will be eliminated to assist individuals and businesses. D-Black applauded them at the time for lowering and eliminating taxes, such as those on spare parts, raw materials, and petroleum.
However, on August 18, 2023, D-Black went back to that old tweet and expressed his disappointment.
He wrote, “Man, they fooled all of us with this. I wasn’t the only one they fooled.”
D-Black said that he and others were tricked by the government’s promises to reduce and remove taxes back in 2017. He’s disappointed and feels like they were deceived.
Replying to fans on claims that he had been silent on the country’s current state, D- Black wrote,
“Never quiet. We in a big mess right now . And we gotta rise to make a change . Or make we move go kenya ?” he called.
D-Black joins a list of celebrities who have regretted their open support for the current government due to economic hardships.
Earlier, actor Prince David Osei lamented on Twitter about the high cost of living in the country, 3 years after openly declaring his support for the NPP party.
