Ghana?s reigning highlife musician, Daniel Amakye Dede, who has carved a niche for himself yesterday called on Ghanaians to desist from any act that seeks undermine the peace the country has enjoyed since independence.

In his quest to support peace in the country ahead of the Supreme Court ruling on the election petition filed by the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Abrantie Amakye Dede has released a peace and unity song titled ?Democracy? to help solidify his peace message and campaign.

In the song which featured Okyeame Kwame, the evergreen highlife musician said in the there was the need to promote democratic governance and rule of law which should be a guiding principle to prevent anybody from taking the law into their own hands regardless of the circumstances.

He urged those seeking leadership positions to understand that they could turn to be losers if they preached violence and negativities that had the potential of undermining and destroying the country.

Abrantie Amakye Dede told BEATWAVES in an interview that as a musician he decided to use music to encourage young people to support peace and to refrain from acts of violence after the Supreme Court judgment.

The award winning musician whose music has gone down well with music lovers in Ghana and beyond, stressed it was necessary to purge the minds of the youth of what he described as utterances that will encourage them to do things to destroy the peace the country is enjoying.

He noted that Ghanaians cherish peace and tranquillity; therefore there is the need for tolerance and understanding of each other to create an enabling environment for social protection and development.
