Kendrick Lamar’s presence in Ghana keeps sparking some conversations among Ghanaians on social media.
Over the weekend, an image of the American rapper went viral. He was seen drinking sachet water popularly known as ‘pure water’ in the picture.
This amazed many social media users who believed the 14 time Grammy Award winner should be at least drinking bottled water.

However, some Ghanaians say the rapper drinking pure water is not something that should be a surprise to people.

Ghanaians should stop the unnecessary comparison and understand Kendrick Lamar does not drink pure water where He stays.He is only strategically selling Himself to Ghanaians by living our life. Sarkodie is a Ghanaian and has achieved enough to live the life He is living pic.twitter.com/A4tJHxJz7X

This reply is in 2 parts .. Firstly, @kendricklamar is NOT the benchmark for how we should live our lives ..
Secondly, bottle water is a lot safer than pure water since the brands don’t give copyright to bottled water. Yet they would easily give for pure water 💧 https://t.co/1hRDEwuhO7
