Ricky Kotey, a close pal to dancehall legend Samini has disclosed why the dancehall legend decided to endorse President Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party ahead of the December polls.
According to him, the ‘My Own’ hitmaker approached the National Democratic Congress and expressed the desire to throw his with behind candidate Mahama for the elections but was snubbed.
As business-minded as he is, he decided to approach the New Patriotic Party (NPP) who did not hesitate to bring him on board to support the party after both parties have agreed on the payment modalities.
Speaking to Mzgee on TV3, Ricky Kotey said Samini has been doing everything to court attention thus his personal decision to endorse the NPP publicly is just unfortunate especially when he has condemned artistes campaigning for political parties in the past.
“I know he reached out to the NDC but had to turn to the NPP because he is business-minded. I just think he is too desperate to make the gains,” Ricky Kotey said.
Samini has come under some bit of fire for declaring his support for the NPP ahead of the polls. Many believe this move by the artiste will be the last straw that will break the back of his music career.
