As Ghanaians, our motherland is the only land we truly have and the peace of Ghana is something we must all work and seek to maintain. As a musician and a public speaker, Prairie is using the thought-provoking lyrics of his peace song titled “Love Like Fire [a call to peace]” to preach a “Let Peace Reign in Ghana” message. ; a number of live performances on a TV and radio tours in some selected regions in Ghana are intended to push the “Let Peace Reign in Ghana” initiative.
