“I Haven’t Endorsed Any Political Party”, Stonebwoy Speaks On NPP Endorsement Brouhaha

Published

on

With just approximately 14 days to elections, Politicians are leveraging on creatives with outrageously large influence on the society to canvas for votes. With the majority of talents availing themselves to be used by politicians to incite electorate’s decision, just a few are on the notion that, staying neutral and allowing the electorate to elect president and parliamentarians based on achievements is the best.

Multi award-winning reggae & dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy, has, in a recent interview on an Accra-based Okay FM, stated that, though he is going exercise his civic responsibility on the day on December 7, he has not made any public declaration for any political candidate to be elected or re-elected for office. But, however believing that, electorates should be given the opportunity to access the political party they feel deserves their votes.

“I won’t endorse any political party for now but I know our father, H.E Nana Akufo Addo has done a lot of good things which are endorsable”, he told host of Ekwanso Dwodwo, Abeiku Santana.

Earlier, Ghanaian born hiplife artiste Batman Samini, endorsed Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in a hot single “Kpoyaka” which outlines the achievements of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), a liberal democratic political party which was registered on 28 July 1992, Government under the leadership of Nana Akufo-Addo.

Sarkodie also dropped “Happy Day” featuring Kuami Eugene. The ambiguity and or inexactness of the song produced by MOG Beatz and Mastered by Possigee has left consumers in a state of uncertainty, as it has become very difficult to interpret it to be a Gospel or political campaign song for the governing New Patriotic Party. However, some part of the lyrics suggest it is actually an agenda driven campaign so for President Nana Akufo-Addo and also a Gospel song to keep nerves calm in these hard times.

Ghana Election 2020 – mybet.africa Put Out Odds

Published

on

With 19 days until election day, sportsbook giant mybet.africa has put out competitive odds on who becomes the President of Ghana.

12 presidential aspirants are vying for the ultimate position to steer the affairs of the country for the next four years come December 7, 2020.

However, mybet.africa believes the spotlight in the presidential election will focus mainly on incumbent President Nana Addo and former President John Mahama. Both aspirants have been in the high office and will want to draw on the experience to convince the electorate to vote in their favour.

But most political pollsters are of the view that the management of the economy will play a vital role in deciding who wins. The incumbency may have the advantage of having managed the economy in a better way as compared to previous John Mahama’s government with the resources available, according to some pollsters.

However, other pollsters have a strong view and believes both governments have equally managed the economy best with the resource available.

Notwithstanding the views of the pollsters, the deciding factor will rest solely on the electorate who holds the power to vote who to handle the economic issues of Ghana.

Mybet.africa has odds on the candidate to have the most votes in the first round and the likely candidate to win the election to become the President of Ghana.

American Rapper 50 Cent has, in a recent interview on “the most dangerous morning show” – Breakfast Club on Power FM, alledged that, Lil Wayne received a payment for his widely trashed Trump-Republican Party endorsement.

37 minutes into the interview, 50 recalled being offered a large amount of money to attend Trump’s inauguration. According to him, the Trump team was reaching out to him—as they did with other artists ahead of the 2020 election—as part of an effort he says was aimed at attracting voters. 50 explained he was initially offered $500,000 to go to the inauguration, though that offer was later bumped up to $1 million.
