Ga chiefs give Gospel artiste Diana Asamoah 3 days to apologise over derogatory ‘Homowo’ comment

Gospel Musician, Evangelist Diana Asamoah, has been given a three-day ultimatum to retract derogatory statement and render an unqualified apology to the Ga-Dangme community.

A statement issued by the Communication Directorate from the Office of the Gborbu Wulomo-Shitse has indicated, the directive follows the interception of a video in which the artiste was seen passing the disparaging comment about the Homowo festival.

“In the video, Diana Asamoah by her comments seemed to be lauding one Patricia Asiedu known widely as ‘Nana Agradaa’ for alleged reprentance from Idolatry while suggesting that it could be through her that the celbration of one of Ghana’s most revered festivals, homowo, could be permanently stopped,” the statement issued on May 5, 2021 said.

The Gborbu Wolumo-Shitse countering the derogatory remarks, noted that the “Homowo festival which has been celebrated for centuries, is an integral part of the Ga-Dangme culture and is in no qualms with no religion or culture.”

The traditional ruler therefore finds the statement derogatory and disrespectful to all the Ga-Dangme fraternity for which reason they demand that she retracts the statement and apologise.
