Ghanaian Hip-Hop singer, Kojo Asare known widely as Yaa Pono, has said that Mother’s Day celebration is more honoured in the country compared to that of Father’s Day.
According to the rapper, people highly patronise the occasion of Mother’s Day to show their appreciation because the male counterparts are often not understood.
“Most of us are unaware that Father’s Day is approaching, but we remember the mothers day weeks before the actual day. We honor our mothers more than our fathers because we do not understand our fathers.”
The ‘Obia Wone Master’ hitmaker made the statement on Y’adwumanie show, a mid-morning programme hosted by Ohemaa Woyeje on Thursday, June 16, 2022, on Accra-based Angel FM.
Yaa Pono who admitted that fathers endure a lot while raising their children, noted that the men should be celebrated equally in the manner done to mothers.
Accounting the role his father played in his life he said, “when my mother died, my father took care of me but i did not understand a lot of what my father did at that time, but when i grew up i understood everything he did because i was not in his shoes.”
“Also, we should value our fathers the same way we value our mothers, because they go through a lot to sacrifice for us [Children]” the rapper advised.
Appreciating his father contribution to the success he has chalked in the music industry, Yaa Pono disclosed that he was one of the first African artists to be featured on YouTube.
He used the opportunity to inform his follows of the release of his new album, THOG (the hand of God) which will be done at the Eastern regional capital, Koforidua, on Friday, July 1, 2022.
