Actor, satirist and television personality, Kwaku Sintim-Misa, known in showbiz circles as KSM, has argued that it is not advisable for entertainment show organizers to cancel events scheduled for the last quarter of the year because of the November general elections.
Speaking on Daybreak Hitz, Tuesday, KSM said a cancellation of events will only intensify the tension elections come with.
He believes such events have the propensity of neutralizing the tension.
“I think it’s a good opportunity for those of us in entertainment to let Ghanaians understand that the election is not a state of war so maybe we can even help… But once we start cancelling all events, then we are actually adding to the perception that things are dangerous. So I think indirectly, we can fuse into that perception by cancelling events…,” he said when asked if he was factoring the elections into his plans for this year’s event.
“I believe that those of us in the entertainment industry can even add to the diffusion of this tension by doing what we have to do… At the end of the day, we have the election and get over it… I think that most of the fear is coming from perception and we in the entertainment world can help diffuse that perception,” KSM added.
The satirist is noted for organising events on 25th December.
