Kwaw Kese gives sarcastic meaning to ‘breaking the 8’ as dollar hits GHC8


Ghanaian musician, Emmanuel Botchwey famed as Kwaw Kese has used, ‘breaking the 8’, a popular mantra of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) to tease the party as the dollar is now equivalent to GHC8.

The NPP mantra, ‘breaking the 8’ is a saying that reminds members and executives of the NPP of the party’s goal to break the status quo that political parties in Ghana after ruling for eight years would be voted out for a new party to assume leadership. As such, ‘breaking the 8’ means ruling for twelve consecutive years.
