Ghanaian actor, Prince Yawson, popularly known as Waakye, has made a passionate confession about his involvement in politics.
Waakye publicly endorsed Akufo-Addo and the NPP in the electioneering campaign in both 2016 and 2020, and even moved out of his sickbed to campaign for them.
According to Waakye, he was moved by frustration to do what he did, adding that he had long been reserved when it comes to taking sides in politics.
He explained that John Mahama’s administration affected his acting career with dumsor and that frustrated him so much.
In an interview with MzGee, wakye said “I don’t do politics. I beg anybody who saw me on the campaign platform but then, before 2017, we were sleeping in darkness. We didn’t have power and as a result, it affected my job – I couldn’t fool [act] because we needed power and after acting, one would need power to watch.”
“It kind of kicked me out of job. It was out of desperation that compelled me to do it because if someone had promised restoring the power, why won’t I campaign for him?” he questioned.
Waakye is making this confession because he said he has earned many enemies for getting involved in politics.
