UK-based Gospel Musician and Preacher Sonnie Badu has stated why he doesn’t reside in his native Ghana but rather in the United States of America.
The “Baba” hitmaker who was responding to allegations that he lied about acquiring a degree, Masters, and Ph.D. in 4 months, said most Ghanaians are always looking for an opportunity to pull each other down.
According to him, there is a mindset problem especially with some section of the youth in the country, hence his decision to live away from the West African country.
He made the comments during a Facebook Live presentation that centered on his work in God’s ministry, his booming reputation as an author, and also a response to social media trolls questioning some recent academic qualifications he “announced’.
“Young people have the audacity to disrespect, it doesn’t move me, it doesn’t touch me because I know them, and you have others jumping yaaay, yippie but I know the mindset. I know the mindset of my people that is why I don’t live there.”
Sonnie also added “But think about it, if we keep going on this way, will our nation move on. If we keep going on this way especially in Ghana, killing our heroes, somebody has the audacity to question my presidential lifetime achievement award…honourary citizenship, keys to the city of Brentford…”
He also said a prayer for Ghanaian youth: “I pray for the youth of our nation, I really pray for them. I do not live in Ghana but I pray for the youth that God has mercy on them. I love Ghana and I pray for the youth of Ghana that God should have mercy and help them.
