Opanka has issued a press statement debunking claims that his new song titled ‘Sh*thole Country’ supports Donald John Trump’s alleged reference to African countries.
Opanka released a new single titled ‘Sh*thole Country’ a couple of days ago inspired by a comment US president, Donald John Trump allegedly made in a closed-door meeting. Opanka made a song using the sensitive phrase as the titled and rather addressed issues he thinks Ghana should rather be concerned about and not spend time discussing an insult from someone.
TalkMediaGhana got the press exclusively and decided to share with the public since we all deserve to know what his intentions were when writing the song.
”Barely 24hrs after the release of my new song ‘shithole country’ I had a call from my big brother Reggie Rockstone and he broke it down to me why I shouldn’t have used Donald Trump’s inexcusable rant about African Countries or his image to express my heart felt concerns about Africa and Ghana which I totally got the point after our conversation.
It’s unfortunate how the the title and artwork might seem to support what Trump said, but it’s something I personally wouldn’t want to be a part of and therefore in no certain terms will I want to endorse it.
I am an entertainer and a black revolutionist who doesn’t seek to only entertain but also churn out good music towards the development of Ghana and Africa as a whole. It was in this vain that as a creative person I did ‘shithole country’ to throw lights on the needful things as citizens and not rather waste our precious time on things that are of no? national interest and help make Ghana our motherland a safe haven to be.
I humbly apologize to any quarters that will feel hurt or offended by my reference to Trump’s comment. Long live Ghana and Africa.”
