The ‘Baajo’ hitmaker however could let the post slide and shared his opinion as a Ghanaian citizen and taxpayer in a quote tweet of the earlier tweet made my Joy News.

The Rapper mentioned in his tweet that he did not need a cathedral in his current state as a Ghanaian. 

“As a Ghanaian, I don’t want a cathedral”, his tweet read.
