Ghanaian comedian and ambassador for Castle Milk Stout, David Oscar, will not kowtow to societal pressure and celebrity calls by colleagues to join in the ongoing #Dumsormuststop campaign spearheaded by actress Yvonne Nelson.
The comedian who has been silent since the trend gathered momentum few weeks ago explained the average Ghanaian has not been helpful enough in solving the problems but rather been hypercritic in the constant whining and complaints hence his decision not to join the trend.
“I’m not even gonna be hypocritical and join the #DumsorMustStop trend. How many of us have tried to conserve energy? Thanks to our waste, the dams are suffering.” He wrote.
Knowing very well how people will come at him, he said “Don’t get me wrong, I’m a mindless critic of the president JDM, and I understand that there are alternative sources of energy…”
Just like others have said earlier, David Oscar believes the president would have saved himself all the blames and constant harassment if it was that easy to fix.
“… do you think that if it was that easy to fix the power crisis, the president would not save himself the blames and constant harassment?.”
He however hit at many who are constantly complaining of the power crisis often referred to as Dumsor and said the constant whimpering and whining would not act as a magic wand to turn things overnight.
“As a nation, we happen to be fault seekers and less of vision implementers. Dumsor must stop, but your constant whining and whimpering would not act as a magic wand. Period!”
Ghanaian celebrities including Yvonne Nelson, Sarkodie, Lydia Forson, DKB and many others are waiting on an approval from the Ghana Police Service to embark on a #Dumsormuststop vigil on May 16 2015.
