Ghanaian musician and MUSIGA Presidential aspirant, Ras Caleb Appiah Levi, born Emmanuel Obiri Kwesi Appiah has revealed why he is never seen around without his peace-signifying catapult.
Speaking to Foster Romanus on e.TV Ghana’s Late Nite Celebrity Show, he stated that he has had his catapult since infancy because the catapult is what David used in defeating Goliath. According to him, it represents the peace sign which is to serve as a reminder that Goliath has been defeated.
‘’I have had this particular one since 1992. I used it performing at Showtime at the National Theatre but by then I had the sling on it so I used to hang it on my shoulder. I don’t carry my luck just for pleasure. There are a lot of battles going on’’, he said.
Ras Caleb concluded that when there are battles, the catapult, representing the peace sign, teaches one to mellow and settle issues in a peaceful way, thus, his reason to keep it with him always.
