Ghanaian rapper Medikal has returned to Twitter after his original account was blocked in November 2022 for impersonating Ghana's President Akufo-Addo.
The new account, created on Wednesday, March 28, 2023, has already garnered over 14,000 followers in less than a day as at the time of this publication.
Medikal's original verified account had over 320,000 followers, but it was shut down after he flouted a warning from Twitter CEO Elon Musk that any account found mimicking a popular figure without indicating "parody" will be blocked.
The rapper’s new account is to promote his upcoming album, which is set to be released in the coming days.
He has already followed 19 accounts on the platform, and is expected to use the microblogging app as one of his main means of promotion.
Medikal is one of Ghana's top rappers, known for hits such as "Omo Ada" and "La Hustle".
He has a large following on social media, particularly among young people, and his return to Twitter is likely to be welcomed by his fans as indicated by the number of followers so far.
