Ghanaian rapper and musician, Peter Famiyeh Bozah, known by the stage name Fameye, is deeply saddened by the gas explosion that struck Appiatse, in the Western Region of Ghana following an accident involving a truck carrying explosives and a motorcycle.
Fameye expressed his worry and vision for his people and followers in a passionate talk with the TV3 NewDay team, on Friday, January 21, 2022.
“I saw it last night… A whole community is down. And Appiatse is one area that I know. I have been there before. It is not in Bogoso, but it is just close to Bogoso. It’s more or less like Bogoso is the capital of all these towns. Recently I was crowned as the Nana Wassa Nyankonton. This happening there makes me feel like there is a huge responsibility on me. I am in mourning. This is too much. This hasn’t happened before. A whole community, everything is down.”
The ‘Nothing I Get’ crooner also talked about his experiences with mining logistics and etiquette in the community.
“Sometimes when you are going to Bogoso, you meet all these big trucks and sometimes you have to park for like 30 minutes for these trucks to pass before you move. Because they are way too big. So for that road, big trucks carrying timber, bauxite, dynamite happen most of the time. So this thing happening is actually going to tell us to find ways and means to solve this problem. Because it is something that is happening there already.
Fameye ended with a heartfelt message for the bereaved, victims, and townsfolk whose lives had been forever changed by the calamity.
“I send my condolences to everyone who has lost a relative or suffered from the explosion. God knows best, but we will also support with prayers. We will come to the town and offer whatever support we can. And have a sit down with the elders to put things in order.”
