Edem has sent a word of advice to his colleague musicians and other celebrities to desist from being under pressure from fans to donate their last money towards the fight against Covid-19.
The fight against the deadly virus that has claimed lives all over the world has seen several celebrities donating items and cash to support their country.
Many fans and followers of celebrities have called on their idols to come to the aid of the needy in society.
In the past few weeks, we have witnessed celebrities like Sarkodie, Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, Dr. Osei Kwame Despite and other notable persons donating to institutions and persons as their contribution to the fight of the virus.
Cleary, VRMG Boss, rapper Edem does not believe in that act especially when a celebrity feels pressured by his fans to make donations.
He has, therefore, advised his brothers and sisters who have attained the ‘celebrity’ status to be careful how they go about making donations.
Edem revealed this in an interview with Cape Coast based Radio Central on a show hosted by Amansan Krakye when he was responding to a question as to whether there is unnecessary pressure on them by fans to make abnormal donations at this unusual period.
“If you are a celebrity and you don’t have money right now don’t donate to anybody. You can’t give what you don’t have and suffer in silence whilst you’re hailed publicly”
“If you have 10cedis and you’ll give someone 1cedi and still be alive it’s better because when you die there will be no one to depend on so it’s better you stay alive and carry more people on your shoulder”
“Everybody should do their little. It doesn’t have to do with only celebrities because if you have a neighbour who needs gari and you have some give them to help them stay home to avoid the spread of coronavirus”.
Edem also used the platform to caution all to be extra careful so they won’t be infected.
Meanwhile, there seem to be a good side to Ghana’s coronavirus cases. Currently, 83 people are reported to have recovered from the virus.
