Ghanaian hip hop musician, Samuel Adu Frimpong otherwise known as Medikal, has advised Ghanaians to be careful with the lives they live and also appreciate the sense of freedom they have.
The hip hop artiste on his twitter page wrote that Ghanaians should appreciate freedom as there is no VIP section in jail. He also added that the law is no respecter of persons.
“There is no VIP section in jail, when you wake up to see an inmate taking a shit right before your eyes in the same room with the smell and everything, you will cherish freedom. Be extra careful in this life, no one should end up there, it is not a place to be!” He posted.
