Veteran Musician,Bessa Simons, has disclosed that Ghanaian musicians are set to collaborate on a new song that will sensitize Ghanaians on the novel and deadly coronavirus.
In an interview with Happy FM’s Doctar Cann on the Showbiz Xtra show, he stated that this initiative was a way musicians could contribute in the fight against virus.
“A song to fight Coronavirus is in the pipeline. As musicians, we influence society through music. We have done that in the past and we can speak of events such as peaceful elections, among others. We are preparing and very soon we will contribute”, he said.
He, however, advised musicians to develop themselves by working on how they write their songs and also practice more with their instrumentals in this time when they stay at home due to the deadly virus.
The Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, recently announced that Government did not intend to pay any celebrity to become ambassadors of COVID-19.
However, this initiative by Ghanaian musicians to sensitize people against Coronavirus with a song proves that musicians do not need an incentive to join the campaign to educate Ghanaians.
