Ghanaian musician, Maradona Yeboah Adjei, widely known as Guru, has opened up about his plans to venture into politics.
He disclosed in an interview with Candymann on Asaase Radio 100.3 that he is currently studying political science at the University of Ghana.
Guru stated that being an entertainer is not enough because he wants to serve his people.
“I have realized being an entertainer isn’t enough. I’m in a position to serve my people to make Ghana a better place. In the past, I have donated 200,000 dollars to one politician to give back to society. I expect those in politics and government to do more of these but if it’s not happening, I’m getting the qualification as a politician to do it better for our people,” he said.
According to him, making the country a better place is not the sole responsibility of the government.
“For example, the issue of galamsey that’s affecting our rivers and other water bodies isn’t the work of the government alone to stop it; as citizens, we must know we destroy nature when we venture into it and refuse to do the right thing,” Guru posited.
