Only a ‘thief in sheep’s clothing can make business out of a deadly virus—Blaq Aroma shades Elikem for selling Ghc2 cloth mask for Ghc85
Ghana’s hip life icon, Blaq Aroma has expressed regret in the manner some fashion designers are taking advantage of the “No Face Mask No Entry” campaign to dupe the citizenry of their meagre earnings.
According to him, the action of those unscrupulous individuals including Elikem Kumordzie the Taylor, who is an actor and a fashion designer was dwindling the economy of the country.
Speaking with Spot On News in an exclusive interview today in Accra, Blaq Aroma bemoaned that the outbreak of the novel coronavirus had already left people moneyless, thus they could hardly feed themselves.
“This is the time that people have to support each other to help curb the virus, not to swingle people in the name of business,” he added.
Blaq Aroma regretted that people were rather making business out of the deadly ailment which had a tendency of destroying the entire country and its people.
He established that the mask should be sold in an affordable price for a common man to own one, adding that ” for Elikem the Taylor to sell the mask for Ghc85 while some reports say it is sold for Ghc2 in Kumasi is a no no and should not be encouraged.”
The “Nana Nyame” hit maker observed that health experts even frowned on the wearing masks by healthy people since it has no assurance that it could prevent one from contracting the virus.
He said through an update by World Health Organisation the mask should be changed within every three hours, “so how can one buy Ghc85 mask and dispose it meanwhile the cloth face mask has no medicated substances to kill the virus.”
Blaq Aroma advised Elikem and other fashion designers to be patriotic and do what is right to drive the developmental agenda forward.
