Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie is the 2014 Ambassador for the Ghana National Breastfeeding Campaign.
In his acceptance speech, the award-winning artist explained the importance of breastfeeding.
He believes that breastfeeding can prevent illness thus saving parents money which would be spent on medical bills
Speaking at the launch of the 2014 World Breastfeeding Week by the Ghana Health Service last Wednesday, he said : “Breastfeeding is very essential and it is to save yourself the cost and the stress of going to hospital all the time just because your child has fallen sick because he/she has not taken the right nutrients which are derived from breast milk.”
The ‘Adonai’ rapper went on to urge young mothers to breastfeed for at least a period exceeding six months and that the rate of breastfeeding among young Ghanaian mothers is very low.
He added: “I will let my followers know about the importance of breastfeeding exceeding six months… I will do everything I can to promote the idea. I will use my social media platforms to educate the public on the need to breastfeed babies.”
