Disabled begging for money saddens me - Pozo Hayes

High-life musician Pozo Hayes says his condition as a physically challenged person has moved him to help make life less difficult for persons living with disabilities.

He is therefore embarking on a musical tour to raise funds for a charity project that will help the physically challenged in Ghanaian orphanages.

He is scheduled to perform at Bronx in New York, Woodbridge in Virginia and North Brunswick with his PH International Band by the end of this year.

The musician said it would be an honour to put smiles on the faces of persons living with disability especially those who have no one to cater for them.

“Although I cannot solve all the problems facing the physically challenged persons in Ghana, I believe my little contribution will help a lot,” he added.

He lamented that the physically challenged are mostly left on the streets and no attention is given them.

“It saddens my heart when I see physically challenged person on the streets begging for money. Because I am one, I feel like weeping when I come across them. The show is to raise funds for the physically challenged and the orphanages and I wish corporate bodies can come on board to help,” he added. The tour is being put together by Royal Community Services and Eternal Life Ministries in Somerset NJ, USA.

Known for songs like ‘Akeka akeka’, ‘Odo mu nsohwe’, ‘Obaa Lydia’, Pozo said he waited a long time to thrill his fans who have not heard from him in these few years.

Pozo was awarded Best Singer at the Entertainment Critics Reviewers Association of Ghana in 1988 and Voice of the Year at Sunshine Music Society the same year.
