Celebrities endorsing some political parties is no news. Over the years, musicians, as well as actors, have openly stated which political party they are affiliated to. The internet for the past two days has seen some dramatic moves by rapper Sarkodie with his song HAPPY DAY which features Kuami Eugene. However, the Management of highlife musician Kuami Eugene has described rapper Sarkodie as dishonest.
The management of Lynx entertainment claimed they were not aware that Sarks New Day song is a political song that purposefully endorses the New Patriotic party.
The King of rap, Sarkodie, and highlife musician Kuami Eugene have been slammed for the song titled ‘HAPPY Day’.
In the song, Sarkodie apologized for criticizing President Akufo-Addo in the past because he has managed to end dumsor.
This portion of the song has drawn condemnation from sympathizers of the National Democratic Congress.
In a statement, Minority Leader, Hon. Haruna Iddrisu says it has been a wonder to him as to why Sarkodie made claims that Nana Addo resolved dumsor.
”Sarkodie or any other musician whose career is at moribundity can receive any amount of money to endorse a political party. However, the endorsement message should not be punctuated with naked lies or embellish with sickly untruths. It is an incontrovertible fact that His Excellency President John Dramani Mahama solved dumsor. And there is overwhelming evidence to this fact potentiated with data. Data cannot be hobbled with some low bars musical lyrics,”
Meanwhile, Kuami Eugene said unequivocally that he was not aware the song was an endorsement for His Excellency the president Nana Akuffo Addo.
Kuami Eugene said;
“Sarkodie only sent me the first verse of his rap which did not contain the endorsement for Nana Addo to aid me to do the chorus. It was only at the video shoot that we got to know of the second verse, we confronted Sark’s management, and they denied. I am uncomfortable, I still don’t know Sarkodie’s motive for the song. It will have an effect on my career, I wasn’t ready to vouch for any political party openly….it will not end here,”
