Vic Mensa Gives More Than 200k People In Ghana Clean, Drinkable Water

Vic Mensa has landed in Accra, Ghana, where he will perform at the free Black Star Line Festival on Friday, January 6, and is spearheading efforts to get over 200,000 locals access to clean water in the days beforehand.

The Chicago rapper said he became moved by the filthy water and other living conditions in Accra and joined forces with his Ghanian father to bring clean water to three towns.

“We’re building three boreholes in different communities in Ghana to provide clean drinking water; the first being the Asokore Zongo in Koforidua, where my family lives, which is already built,” Mensa said.

He continued: “The other locations are a nearby community called Effiduase and then our ancestral village in the Volta Region, Amedzofe. “Most people in communities like this in Ghana experience constant waterborne diseases.”

The name of the festival, according to a prior statement by Chance, came to him as he was writing the lyrics for his upcoming sophomore album, Star Line Gallery.
