Stop using chemicals and focus on organic farming; Afro-Roots musician, Rocky Dawuni advises African youth

Afro Roots and Reggae musician, Rocky Dawuni has advised African youth to focus on organic farming and desist from the use of too much chemicals. The two times Grammy awards nominee made those comments whilst speaking on a Ghanaian television station, TV3.

According to him, the same chemicals pumped on plants end up affecting the soil quality and is also washed down into the streams serving as sources of water for some communities.

He however advised further that, the farmers should research about innovative ways of going about their activities to help scale up their production base.

The musician whose album themed “Voice of Bunbon, Vol. 1” has been nominated in the category of “Best Global Music Album” at 2022 GRAMMY awards gave this advise on a holiday edition, celebrating the hard works of farmers across Ghana.

This is the second time he has earned the nomination on the GRAMMYS. The Afro Roots star was earlier nominated in 2016 with his “Branches of the Same Tree” album. With the recent call-up, he will face competition from the likes of Daniel Ho & Friends, Angelique Kidjo, Femi Kuti, and Wizkid
