Musician Amandzeba spearheads the concert being organised by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign Ghana.

Amandzeba told Showbiz that the concert was motivated by the historic struggle of the Palestinians which is similar to that of the people of South Africa who endured suffering under apartheid.

According to him, “The Palestinians have suffered assassination and detentions without trial while their farms have been destroyed and lands stolen from them and denied access to basic needs such as water. Palestinian refugees have also been denied the right to return to their homeland.

“We are protesting against these crimes against the Palestine people hence a number of musicians including; myself decided to organise this concert,” he explained.

Amandzeba, therefore, called on other stakeholders— Members of Parliament, trade union leaders, political parties, youth and students’ groups, chiefs and the public to join them during the concert.
