I paid for my own ticket to UN Climate Change Conference; Okyeame Kwame

November 10, 2021 By 0 Comments

Ghanaian artiste, Okyeame Kwame, has refuted claims that his trip to Glasgow for this year’s United Nations Climate Change Conference was paid for by the government.

Responding to a social media user who wrote that he was wasting taxpayers’ money, the ‘Love Locked Down’ rapper insisted that he footed his bills to be part of the COP26.

“I work hard! Really hard to be able to do the things that I do. I paid for my own visa fees, my own tickets, my own hotel accommodation, and my own food while campaigning for Climate change. I am not on taxpayers’ money currently. I pray that you will be focused on improving the quality of your life rather than assuming who is paying for whose travels. The problems of Ghana are many, I’m trying to solve Climate change. What are you trying to solve?” He wrote.

This comes on the back of criticism that the government took too many people to the conference.

The conference is being held at the SEC Centre in Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom, between 31 October and 12 November 2021, under the presidency of Alok Sharma.
