Just recently the SWAT Unit of Police in the Ashanti Region shot and killed seven purported to be armed robbers in Asawasi, Kumasi. This was in response to the killing of a policeman who was also a member of the SWAT Unit, by armed robbers at Manso.
But information came through that they were not really armed robbers but were gainfully employed, had families and had not a single criminal record. Some were even members of NPP’s task force who guard the President whenever he is in the Ashanti Region.
This didn’t sit well with the youth of Zongo communities in Kumasi and Ghana as a whole. It was noted that this wasn’t the first time Zongo youth were killed for no reason. It happened in Tafo, when there was a dispute between the chief of Tafo and the Zongo youth where one gentleman was shot dead by a Police Officer for no particular offense.
Also, just some few months back, the asante youth of Ahwiaa butchered and killed a Zongo youth over a quarrel and still the case is hanging.
All these put together has angered and triggered the conscience of the Zongo youth for justice. Why does it always have to be the Zongo youth who are tagged with armed robbery, extortion, rotten deeds???
It is to this effect that Marvelous Kings Records has put together a song featuring prominent Zongo artistes called, ” Justice For Zongo” which is aimed at, first of all, bringing all Zongo youth together and secondly, with one voice and accord, cry out to the societal leaders to bring justice or else action must be taken to appease the innocent souls gone.
The song which headlines the major artiste of Marvelous Kings Records, Soundcard, features Fancy Gadam, the prince of the North, Jubilant, Brown Nyzz and SBeez.
