Ghanaian rapper Edem has spoken against what he describes as sheer discrimination against the third largest ethnic group in Ghana, the Ewes.
According to him, the wanton show of disregard for people who are predominantly from the Volta Region of Ghana is quite crazy and needs to stop.
Tweeting about this volatile ethnocentrism issue on Twitter, Edem pointed out instances where Ewaes are treated with disdain just for the sake of it.
According to him, Ewes are disrespected, looked down upon and sometimes refused marriage. Edem believes the time is up for Ewses to be treated fairly.
In a nutshell, Edem is speaking against Ethnic superiority or tribal supremacy where individuals of different ethnic or tribal inclinations are treated badly and looked down upon.

Freddy wrote: that perception is very disheartening and i hope people would see it’s long overdue they put a stop to that. Sometimes it’s very difficult being an ewe in some places
