Sarkodie has in a new tweet revealed the health condition of fellow rapper, Pappy Kojo who’s stuck in Italy due to the Coronavirus lockdown.
The ‘Fante’ rapper in several tweets, interviews, and social media posts appealed to the Government to help fly him back to Ghana with a private jet.
“ I’m not safe, I live just across a busy street and people keep using that road every minute which is not safe for me, I’ve been calling out to the government [President Akufo-Addo and his ministers] yet no response, I’m a Ghanaian and I’ve done a lot for this country in terms of creative arts.
“The Ghanaian Embassy in Italy recently reached out to inform me about the death of some two Ghanaians residing in Italy which I told them I’ve heard the news.
“Sincerely I’m not safe, I have something to feed on now but I’m afraid I might soon run out of food.” Pappy Kojo told 3FM’s MzGee sometime back in an interview.
Well, Barbara Oteng Gyasi who’s the minister of tourism, arts and culture told Pappy Kojo that his request to return to Ghana can’t be met.
“Currently, traveling is out of the question. We’re not encouraging people to come to Ghana,” she said.
“Ghanaians can return home but if you’re in a country which is locked down and you don’t have flight coming in, then how do you travel? He wants to be jetted back to Ghana? How is that possible? We cannot arrange a jet to bring an individual back.
“We’re trying to contain a situation and the directive is that for countries which have recorded over 200 cases, we are not allowing people from those countries into Ghana because we are also trying to contain the situation here. And I believe that wherever he finds himself, if he follows the guidelines from the protocols, he will be safe,” she added.
Well, rapper Sarkodie in a new tweet is saying that he’ll pay anything to get Pappy Kojo back to Ghana.
“I’m also locked up out here but I will pay anything to get
@PAPPYKOJO back home … he’s not well”, he tweeted.
As it stands now, Italy has 128,948 confirmed cases of Coronavirus and they have recorded 15,887 deaths.
