The Ghanaian military force that will be sent as part of the ECOWAS unit to deal with the coup in Niger has been advised not to sacrifice their lives in this endeavour by Romanian-Ghanaian rapper Wanlov the Kubolor.
Wanlov’s viewpoint, expressed in a video that has received support from celebrities like Sarkodie, is motivated by his anxiety about the danger that the Ghanaian armed force may encounter if it were to take part in a fight in Niger.
Captioning his thoughts in a video shared on Instagram, he stated, “niger got rid of their akufu addo without a single life lost and now you are going there to put their main problem back in power for france and america against the will of the people of niger to keep exploiting them anyhow • don’t risk your life or kill yor own people for these corrupt people oh! i dey beg vim,”
The “African Gypsy” singer believes that rushing into military action without taking into account the bigger dynamics at play could be harmful, especially if it entails Africans battling one another.
Wanlov also alluded to the fact that France, the former colonial ruler of Niger, still wields a significant influence in the region and is trying to take back control by suing the ECOWAS troops, inadvertently perpetuating cycles of manipulation and exploitation
“Chale what’s up this is Kubolor, I get a message to the Ghana Army. I beg you guys waa make you no risk your lives and go fight fellow black people in Niger because you will be fighting for Macron,” he shared
