Maestro drops a new single, which he said ‘
Got this idea for this song this summer when I was fortunate to link up with some youths from Lizzy F.C,got inspired by how they upheld themselves at the NorwayCup Tournament. Their joy of winning together and spirit of creating a good atmosphere, which added value to entertainment gave me a good vibe to write this song.What I saw in these youths is what I expect to see in our leaders. Our diversity should be our strength. No selfish leadership and yes to more youth programs with the aim to educate and break down barriers of corruption. Food clothes and shelter we know are the basic needs. I got inspired, I hope mother Ghana does as well, vote for your right candidate, respect n manners to keep the peace. God bless our homeland Ghana!!!’
