Liberian Afrobeat artist Jzyno recently shared an honest account of the difficulties he encountered and the peace he discovered in Ghana, his new home.
The producer of the popular song “Butta My Bread,” who spoke on Onua Showtime With Mcbrown, spoke about his personal migration from Liberia to Ghana.
Jzyno claims that both difficulty and peace have been a part of his time in Ghana. “My time in Ghana has been difficult, yet quiet. I am mobile at all times.
He continued by contrasting his experiences in Ghana with those in his own Liberia, highlighting the widespread safety issues there.
“Truth be told my country has not got that level of safety. Every time you hear a little got missing or raped. Someone coming home from work just 10 o’clock got robbed. There are things happening in Liberia,” he told Nana Ama Mcbrown
The musician, who is currently based in Ghana, opened up about the security challenges his fellow Liberians face, saying, “Liberia is a blessed country, we want to be peaceful and our government is trying but because of the ex-combatants, those who passed through the war and were not able to get themselves back.”
Jzyno acknowledged the efforts made by the Liberian administration to uphold peace but emphasized the difficulties faced by the nation’s turbulent past and how it continues to affect some facets of the populace.
“They just closed themselves so they feel like there’s no way. They live certain lives and their children follow and other people around them have accepted their lifestyle too,” he submitted.
Jzyno said that in contrast to his experiences in Liberia, Ghana had given him a sense of security and tranquility.
He stressed his capacity to concentrate on his music and personal development as well as the tranquil setting he has found in his new house.
He noted, “Ghana has really been tough but Liberia has been smooth because that’s where I’m from. Making it out here it took me a lot of years but, like I said, it’s been very peaceful so I prefer being in a peaceful place and hustle.”
