“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.
