Ghanaian musician King Paluta has reacted to critics after he was seen in a video rapping with Vice President and NPP flagbearer Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia on his campaign bus during a three-day tour of the Ashanti Region.

The video, shared on Dr. Bawumia's X account on June 12, features the Vice President rapping King Paluta's hit song 'Aseda' alongside the musician.

The video also shows Chairman Wontumi, Ashanti Regional Minister Simon Osei-Mensah, and Dome-Kwabenya MP Sarah Adwoa Safo enthusiastically singing an acapella version of 'Aseda'.

This joyful moment took place on Wednesday, June 12, during the climax of Dr. Bawumia's Ashanti Region campaign tour.

However, the TGMA New Artiste of the Year faced criticism for his involvement in political activities, given the current political climate in the country.

In an interview on Accra-based United Television, King Paluta defended his actions, stating that he saw no issue with honouring the Vice President’s invitation.

He strongly rebuked his critics, suggesting that anyone who found fault with his decision was not thinking right.

“I heard a presenter attacking me because I joined the Vice President on his campaign bus. I think he has a tank in his head to think that way.

“Even the said presenter feels disrespected when artistes are invited by him and don’t show up. How much more the Vice President of the country who is an elderly man?

“I went there because the Vice President wanted to see me and if you have a problem with that it is your cup of tea. I drove there with my fuel so if he gives me something to fuel my car, is it a crime?” he questioned.
