Multiple awards winning Ghanaian Born Reggae/Dancehall artiste, Livingstone Etse Satekla, professionally and executively known as, Stonebwoy has concocted a work of art, precisely a song that has the objective of speaking against the xenophobic attacks in some African states.
Stonebwoy in the yet-to-be-released educational and revolutionary reggae song, touched on some iconic statements made by African leaders of the past including Ghanaian great Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, on why the African states need to come to together to drive forward the positive agenda of the continent.
This project comes at the back of some youths believed to be South Africans unleashing their anger on fellow Africans who have migrated to the country on the southern region on the continent in quest of seeking greener pastures to feed their families. This development has led to the death of several in the recent anti-African immigrant violence. This has also resulted in reprisal attacks on South African owned establishments in the Africa states whose citizens have been affected by these attacks.
According the 2015 Black Entertainment Tv (BET) “Best International Act – Africa” awards winner, the dislike of or prejudice against people from other countries; xenophobia and mental slavery is a major tool that is being used to divide the African indigeons that has the potential of making the continent a safer place for the natives.
According to the 5 times Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) “Reggae & Dancehall Artiste of the Year, xenophobia has an adverse effect on the society as well as economy of a region, explaining that, it goes without saying the community will be looked down upon by others and on a global platform as well.
Stonebwoy also noted that, the social impacts of xenophobia is, it breeds an atmosphere of hostility and distrust in society. This he explain can lead to the decline in the number of migrants to that particular society, adding that, the situation in turn has a negative impact on the economy, that will be deprived of the influx of talent and resources.
He revealed that, the xenophobic attack will, more or less, turn into a closed one, where there will be no introduction of new ideologies, innovations, and thought processes, adding that, it will also have a long-term effects on the tourists as well, who will be advised against and also prefer not to visit such a volatile region. This, according to him, will result in the loss of a chunk of revenue, and various industries that come associated with the tourism sector will be hit.
