Music god Okyeame Kwame says he broke down into tears when his colleague Obuor lost his parliamentary primaries in the New Patriotic Party contest in June.
According to him, Obuor would have been a great representative for his people in parliament because he’s selfless.
“I cried when Obuor lost his primaries. He is the most selfless human being I know and I know he would have been an amazing MP for the people. I have confidence he will succeed in future,” the Faithful hitmaker told Bola Ray on Starr Chat Wednesday.
He also disclosed going into politics has crossed his mind in current times.
“Going into politics has crossed my mind 50% of the time. My wife says I don’t have the heart for politics but I don’t think I should have the heart before I get into it”.
Obour, who desire
to represent the New Patriotic Party
(NPP) in the Asante Akyem South constituency in the Ashanti Region, lost in the primary held on Saturday, June 20.
He polled 296 votes whilst incumbent Member of Parliament, Kwaku Asante Boateng polled 360.
Obour revealed his intentions to run for Parliament last year and had taken steps towards that by starting up a number of development projects in the Asante Akyem constituency.
His bid was not without controversy as some of musicians which include D Black and Criss Waddle asked delegates not to vote for him because he was inefficient and corrupt while NPP executives in the constituency were divided.
