Samini, a reggae dancehall artist, has dismissed reports that he will run for MP on the NPP ballot.
A flier circulated recently claiming that the dancehall act was vying for a parliamentary seat on the NPP’s ticket.
This rumor was debunked by Samini in a recent post saying, “
It has come to my notice that some unscrupulous people are drawing my name into needless political debates. Please be informed that I have neither made any comments regarding my disappointment or otherwise of a political position nor declared my intent to run for office anywhere. NO ONE has promised me any political role and I am not anticipating any call up whatsoever to that effect.
Much as it is in everyone’s interest to serve his nation should the opportunity arise, I think we should all condemn needless and childish political gimmicks that pitch one tribe against the other. It is sentiments like those that ignited the Rwanda genocide and I strongly condemn it! Please disregard any social media post that suggests that I plan to take political office or expressed disappointment at any party or political figure for whatever reason. Should I ever consider running for office, I will make it known via official public statements on my official handles. Thank You”
