Yaw Sarpong Mobbed in Kumasi After Electrifying Show
Ace Gospel Musician, Yaw Sarpong, was mobbed at Adum, the Central Business District (CBD) of Kumasi on Monday morning.
This was after he had treated hundreds of music fans to sumptuous gospel tunes, which sent a chunk of the crowd onto the dancing floor.
The occasion was when Yaw Sarpong, who had been in the music business for over four decades now, started the ‘Peace for Ghana’ project.
Per the project, Yaw Sarpong would be visiting the ten regional capitals in the country, where he would use music to sustain Ghana’s peace.
The laudable programme would also see top personalities in the regions that he would visit, preaching about peace to the citizenry.
During the maiden event in Kumasi, Yaw Sarpong, who has 26 tracks to his credit, performed for about four hour’s non-stop in the street.
Several shop owners left their shops as they gathered in the street, which had been blocked because of the show, to watch their idol perform.
Later on in a chat with THE PUBLISHER, Yaw Sarpong noted that he witnessed how Liberia, which was very peaceful, was destroyed by war.
He said he started his music career in Liberia, adding that the country was very peaceful until war nearly collapsed the once peaceful nation.
Yaw Sarpong therefore entreated Ghanaians not to take the peace in the country for granted, saying “We should work to protect our peace”.
According to him, he knows the devastating effects of war therefore he would work to ensure that Ghanaians protected the peace in the country.
Yaw Sarpong said he was using his own resources for the Peace for Ghana project, saying that he would welcome support from corporate bodies and individuals.
