Rapper Kwaw Kese has coined a name for musicians who publicly declare their support for political parties and their candidates ahead of elections.
This is the reaction of the “Dondo’ hitmaker to all the controversies surrounding the decision of Sarkodie and Samini to endorse the candidature of President Akufo-Addo ahead of the December polls.
In a Twitter post, Kwaw Kese, who is currently based in the States, described musicians who endorsed political parties and their candidates as ‘Political artistes.”
He came to this conclusion by reminding his followers and fans of how Shatta Wale somewhat endorsed Mahama in 2016 while 2020 is seeing Samini and Sarkodie endorsing President Akufo-Addo.
Meanwhile, Sarkodie has subtly said he did not do the song purposely to throw his weight behind the NPP neither was the rap verse he dropped on the song meant to push the #4More4Nana mantra.
Kuami Eugene who was featured on the ‘Happy Day’ song has also said that he wasn’t in the know as to whether Sarkodie was doing the song primarily to support the NPP and Akufo-Addo and in effect distanced himself from the politicization of the song.
