Controversial Ghanaian Reggae artistes and songwriter Shasha Marley has said the 1979 coup d’etat of the late Former President Jerry John Rawlings was very instrumental and necessary because Ghanaians needed it to make their lives better.

“Let me state it categorically that I’m not partisan and I don’t support politics, but what I can say about Rawlings is that, at the time he made his first coup in 1979 I think we needed him. At that time Ghana needed somebody like him to reform the country and to stabilize the country”,Shasha Marley said this in an interview with Kumasi-based Pure FM monitored by MyNewsGH.com.
