Dumsor vigil has made history – Sarkodie

Rapper Sarkodie, who was not in the country for the #DumsorMustStop vigil to protest against the worsening power crisis, has congratulated his colleagues on a successful event.
The award winning rapper believes that the vigil has made history, urging that Ghanaians to continue to push for an end to the power crisis, popularly known as ‘dumsor’.
Thousands of Ghanaians poured onto the streets – from Legon old gate to the Tetteh Quarshie Interchange – Saturday to join celebrities Yvonne Nelson, Van Vicker, Prince David Osei, Barimah Sydney and others, to protest and press government to solve the power crisis.
Sarkodie, one of the main brains behind the vigil, missed out on the event due to a music video shoot with American hiphop star Ace Hood in Miami, USA.
The rapper said in a statement after the vigil that he is really proud of the campaign.
Read Sarkodie’s statement below:
Yesterday (Saturday) a bold statement was made. #dumsormuststop went from being just a social media awareness creation campaign to something we are all now proud of.
History has been created, your way, our way.
To Yvonne Nelson, my other colleagues who joined, and the rest of the team that put this together, I want to say a big congratulations.
A rather tight working schedule in the United States made it impossible for me to be physically present at the gathering.
Long live the good people of this country.
Together let’s continue to push for an end to the current electricity supply crisis.
