“Dumsor” is an Accra pandemic – David Oscar

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Comedian David Oscar believes the current outrageover the ongoing

power crisis is a bit exaggerated.

Describing it as an "Accra pandemic" and not a "national disaster,"

the comedian does not understand why people are becoming excessively

emotional about the subject.

On Joy FM's Ghana Connect programme, Friday, Oscar said he had

traveled to some regions within the past month and can say on

authority that the power outagewhich has now been christened in Ghana,

dumsor, is not as severe inother regions as it is in Accra.

He mentioned Kumasi in the Ashanti Region, Koforidua in the Eastern

Region, Volta Region and Cape Coast in the Central Region as some of

the places he visited where the situation was not as badas it is being

made to seem.

The comedian had already courtedanger amongst some of his colleagues

for criticizing a planned procession by celebrities against the power


The procession dubbed the 'dumsormuststop' vigil was triggered by a

post on twitter by actress Yvonne Nelson.

She has had enough of the power crisis and took her frustration to

public with a #dumsormuststop .

Whether by design or coincidence, rapper Sarkodie also released a

track titled the masses in which hechided government for what he says

is the high cost of living in thecountry, worsened by a power crisis.

He would later join forces with Yvonne Nelson, comedian Derrick Kobina

Bonney (DKB), actress LydiaForson and a host of others, who have vowed

to be part of the dumsor vigil.

David Oscar said it would be hypocritical for him to be part of the

vigil, a comment some of the celebrities found insulting.
