Ghanaian singer and songwriter, Kofi Kinaata has sent a caution to Fante kenkey vendors. This comes after the musician noticed that the kenkey sellers use white rubber to cover it before cooking.
In a video shared on his official Facebook page, the singer was captured unwrapping the leaves of a kenkey and noticed that a white rubber was used to cover the kenkey.
He stated that using rubber in making food in the country is too much. Citing some examples, he said rubbers are used to tie groundnut, plantain and everything else.
“What type of life is this? When did this design come into existence? When was it launched and we did not hear about it?” he questioned in the video.
He pleaded with them to refrain from using rubber because our ancestors never used it and lived for so many years without it.
“Did we ask for rubber? When did we, the consumers, organize a meeting to request rubber be used?”
