Dancehall artiste Shatta Wale has urged Ghanaian voters to retain President Akufo-Addo in the upcoming general elections in December 2020.
The controversial dancehall artiste, whose dad is a member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), said it would be a wise decision to take as he endorsed Akufo-Addo’s presidency for a second term.
Speaking on Joy FM Saturday afternoon, he said, “Nana Addo has done a lot and needs to be commended. Ghanaians should open their eyes.”
In his reckoning, he indicated that the President is not only doing well, but how his leadership has been able to handle situations during this pandemic makes him deserving of a second term.
The endorsement has come less than a day after his former best friend, Pope Skinny, accused him of being a member of the opposition NDC, yet he is dining with members of government.
NEWS-ONE has also gathered his endorsement of Akufo-Addo is causing a lot of panic in the camp of ex-President John Mahama, who is the NDC’s flagbearer in the upcoming election.
Some Ghanaian musicians and movie stars are noted for supporting politicians and political parties, especially during election years.
Musician Lucky Mensah was the first entertainer to endorse the current President for the 2020 elections in October 2019. He recorded a single in that regard. Now, it's Shatta Wale who has also endorsed the President.
