Controversial musician Kwame A Plus has stated that he is ever ready to serve jail term because of TV license fee.
The incensed musician questioned the kind of content shown on the state broadcaster (Ghana Broadcasting Corporation) to warrant TV license fees.
He hinted of hitting the streets to halt the collection of TV license fees from Ghanaians adding that he will be the first Ghanaian to go to jail for non payment.
A Plus said Ghanaians will vote against the Akufo-Addo’s government in 2020 elections if it does not rescind its decision.
‘What is on GTV that anyone must go to jail for not paying to watch? First, it was tow levy. Now it’s this nonsense. I will never pay. 2018 I will organize a demonstration against TV license. I want to be the first to go to jail for not paying TV license. Ghanaians are under pressure already. Bring this nonsense and jail them and see what will happen in 2020. Abi you remember the motor court?,’ he fumed.
There has been public outcry following a decision by the Chief Justice Sophia Akuffo to set up a special court to punish TV license fee defaulters after management of the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) appealed to her.
But the controversial artiste described as ‘wicked and clueless’ any government which charges citizens for owning TV sets.
“Any government which charges it’s poor people import duty for TV sets and charge them annually for owning it is very wicked and clueless!!! Give me liberty or give me death,” he pointed out,’ he stated.
