According to the versatile artiste, he sees nothing wrong with a political party approaching him and him accepting the offer. He however added that the amount is dependent on what his role will be required to play.

“I wouldn’t mind campaigning for any political party if they ask me to. I’m a brand and they are also looking for a brand that can help them reach the masses. If a party should call me, I will have my team take a look at their offer. And this will depend on what they want me to do because my team would have to know if they just need me to do a song, perform on their platforms or more. If a political party needs me to campaign for them, it will take nothing less than a million new Ghana cedis,” yfmghana.com quotes him to have told Hitz FM.

Others however said that once the constitution of the land provides for freedom of association, celebrities should equally and freely enjoy that political right.

Over the years, some showbiz personalities have declared their respective support for the two main political parties – New patriotic Party (NPP) and National Democratic Congress (NDC).

While Kwabena Kwabena, and Socrate Safo have announced their support for NPP, John Dumelo and Clement Bonney (Mr. Beautiful)are for the NDC.
