According to Amanzeba, aside Mahama’s ability to govern the country, he admires the first gentleman of the land. He noted that his admiration increased after Mahama in an interview mentioned him as his favourite artiste.
Amanzeba intimated that although he has respect for Nana Akufo-Addo, presidential candidate for the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), he supports Mahama because they are friends.
“Parties don’t attract me. I look at personalities, the relationship I have with you. I have a lot of respect for Nana Akufo-Addo, I have a lot of respect for Mahama but what makes me relate to Mahama is, a sitting president goes for an interview in the whole of United States and says Amanzeba is his favourite artiste and you think it’s a joke?” he said on Adom FM’s Work and Happiness.
Amanzeba indicated that the relationship between him and Mahama has existed for long. The musician recounted visiting him [Mahama] during his days as the vice president of the country.
“[He was my friend] before he became the vice president and president. When he was the vice president, my uncle was the president. Professor Mills was my uncle. And whenever I went to the castle, I spent more time with him than my uncle. You show loyalty to friends,” he noted.
The former member of defunct NAKOREX music group however wished Nana Addo well and urged all to support whoever is elected president.
He disclosed that he respects Kwabena Kwabena for declaring his support for Nana Addo.
“You know why I respect Kwabena Kwabena very well? Because he comes out to state his position. Why will people have a problem with him stating his position?” he said.
