National Democratic Congress (NDC) flag-bearer John Dramani Mahama has reacted after Sarkodie and Samini endorsed Nana Akufo-Addo, ahead of the general election.
In spite of these major campaign songs, John Mahama says it will not hamper his relations with the entertainment personalities.
In an interview on Starr FM, Mahama said that he likes Sarkodie and Samini and their latest endorsements won’t affect his attitude towards them.
“I don’t have any antipathy or anger with anybody who endorses Nana Addo. That’s their decision”, he said
“I like them, they’re young talented musicians and my attitude towards them doesn’t change. Samini has been somebody that I like…and so if he’s endorsed Nana Addo it doesn’t change my attitude towards him.” he added.
The NDC flag-bearer however stressed that he has refrained from using celebrities for campaigns because the public misconstrue their endorsements and their careers suffer.
“Musicians will make music for you and all that but it doesn’t really amount to an endorsement, we don’t understand some of these things. In Ghana when a musician when a musician makes music for you or a political party then he comes against a lot of antipathy from the supporters of the other party, that shouldn’t be the case,” he explained.
