At a global entertainment event that was taking place at the Black Star Square in Accra, the President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, was booed while he was on stage.
The Global Citizen Festival, which featured a variety of performances by local and international artists, drew in thousands of attendees to the location where it was held.
A portion of the audience started clapping and chanting “away, away…” when it came time for the President to give his presentation.
While people are chanting “away, away,” the president is seen on video being filmed in Ghana and claiming that “the whole world is in Ghana today.” GhanaWeb saw this video.
