A Ghanaian Youth and Change Activist Richmond Anane-Simon, AKA Rasyung Deking is set to release a reggae song to send a message of hope to Ghana and the rest of the world even as the country goes through very trying times.
According to him, the novel coronavirus may not end up killing as many people as fear and panic could.
It is for this reason that he decided to come up with this reggae song titled “Hope for the world”.
Though the song is set to be released and made available on online platforms on Friday, March 27, 2020, it is believed that the project will be accompanied by colourful visuals.
Mr. Anane-Simon, who also doubles as the founder of Rassam Initiative, in an interview stated that “The world is going through very trying times. We see and hear reports of people dying in different parts of our planet as a result of a deadly pandemic called Coronavirus. Currently, there is no cure for it and hence people are frustrated, depressed, gripped by fear and panic.”
“As an activist and a leadership-driven person having operated in civil society for a while now I have tried my best to build a better society for all through my gifts and talents, but one that has been suppressed for a while now is music. I have been having sleepless nights over the Covid 19 and what we can do as a people. I have been stirred to give hope to the world through this horrifying times hence the title of the song.”
