Ghanaian rap star, Sarkodie have dropped some new information formerly unknown into the public domain.
Apparently, Apostle Kojo Sarfo Kantanka of Kantanka Companies offered to fix Dumsor but was denied by the government.
This Sarkodie claims he was made aware about, after a visit to Apostle Kojo Safo Kantanka.
Many commenters on the post expressed sadness and disappointment over how we’ve sit and rendered such a talent “useless” for decades when he could have and still can do a lot of good for the country, because of the selfish interests of some politicians.

Others believed Sarkodie should ‘put his money where his mouth is’.
According to these comments, they don’t see Sarkodie patronizing anything Kantanka, including not even driving the Kantanka cars, nor even promoting it through his music, as he brags about some foreign brands of cars.

One commenter implied The Kantankas are partly to be blamed for having little to no success getting to Ghanaians.
According to the user name “2020”, some technological and car brands have found a smart way of getting to the masses by attaching themselves to well known brands and given away ‘freebies’ in promotions.

Here we are,so kantanka marketing team cant step out and give these companies a better and strategic offers ??— VISION 2020 (@wayandtruth) April 8, 2019
Load shedding or as popularly known ‘Dumsor’ have been creeping back into the lives of Ghanaians now for over a month, since March.
The canker was thought to have been rid off, after the “purchase” of Ameri Power, Kar Power etc which gave the country some stable power for years now, since the NDC Mahama led government was voted out in 2016.
