Music, apart from its entertainment value is also a tool for social change; the reason Stonebwoy put together a song to address issues pertaining to illegal mining.
The new song titled ‘Greedy Men’ highlights the detrimental effects of illegal small-scale gold mining in Ghana often known as galamsey.
In the song, Stonebwoy speaks on the economic loss, greater loss of life and property, poisoning of soil and groundwater, biodiversity loss, chemical leakages, and other long-term negative repercussions the activity is having on the country.
He also mentions how foreign companies engage in illegal gold mining in Ghana in their quest for riches at the detriment of the local people.
