This I pray!” he said Titled “Justice for Mahama”, the song underscores the need for Ghanaians to “get wise” and stop the senseless acts of mob justice else one day “we will lose our lives from these things”, and urged Ghanaians to “let’s love ourselves, we don’t need this in our country…” He asked “Ghana where is your love,” stating that “if you’ve got love, you won’t do this” to Captain Mahama.
