Medikal has taken advantage of the current political atmosphere in the country by using the stage provided by the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) recent presidential primaries to make a noteworthy announcement.
The rapper revealed on Twitter his ambition to run for president in the future.
Inspired by Nana Akufo Addo’s notorious promise of “one district, one factory,” which never came to pass, Medikal declares with audacity that if elected to lead Ghana, he will make sure that every home has access to a swimming pool.
We think it’s obvious that he’s being humorous and shouldn’t be taken too seriously.
Medikal was in the news recently when he said that his extravagant social media persona was fake and that he was not rich in real life.
The “Omo Ada” singer explained to Cookie Tee on Twitter that the lavish lifestyle he promotes is just for show and not to be taken seriously because of this.
Hollywood films were Medikal’s medium of choice in making his thesis. He said that his luxurious automobiles, vacations, and private aircraft are all fake, just like shooting and murdering.
“It’s all props, it’s like the Rambo movie, you see him with guns, shooting and killing, but in real life, he’s in The Bahamas chilling, that’s how it is.
“So, what you see on social media is an illusion. It’s just my brand. I don’t have anything. My fans know that whatever I don’t own, I won’t claim as my own. I’m not rich, I’m trying to survive, I’m a hustler just like everyone else,” he said.
With the help of his passionate fan base, Medikal has already achieved success with a number of well-known songs, such as Confirm and Forever My Love (co-written with Bisa Kdei). Also, on his most recent mixtape, B.A.R III: Lomi Era, 2016 Ghanaian music artist of the year E.L included a feature on him.
Medikal had the most nominations for the 2017 Ghana Music Awards, beating out other well-known artists including Sarkodie.
