John Dumelo on his Twitter handle on January 28, 2016, said although he had nothing against Nana Addo, he did not expect him to win the election in November.

In an interview on Accra-based Kasapa FM Wednesday morning, the movie star said some anonymous people keep forwarding life threatening messages to him since he tweeted on Nana Addo.

"I keep on receiving threatening messages from anonymous persons. They are threatening my life...so many things for making a statement. But I give everything to God. They are issuing the threats on social media, anonymous phone calls and things," he said.

He added that " I think it has not gotten to the point of reporting to the security yet. I am a very security conscious person. Wherever I go I just have this security thing around me. I just don’t stay at a particular place at a time. The truth is that even most of the time I am not in Ghana and when I am in Ghana people really don’t know where I live and people don’t know my movement and whereabouts... so I take it very serious but at the same time I have a very security conscious mind. So, I think I will be okay for now."

Meanwhile, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Hannah Serwaa Tetteh who doubles as the Member of Parliament for the Awutu Senya West constituency, has lauded John Dumelo.

The minister who took to social media described John Dumelo as a really talented actor.

In a tweet, she said, "I think you are a really talented actor & do a great job, just got back from Addis & was watching your film on Kenyan Airways."
