According to them, the current Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Artiste of the Year was not aware about the political lyrics in the track.
Sarkodie and Kuami Eugene have been criticized for the music titled ‘A New Day’.In the track, Sarkodie expressed regret for lambasting President Akufo-Addo in the past due to the fact he has managed to cease dumsor.
This portion of the music has worn criticism from fans and senior officers of the NDC.Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu has pondered why the musician made declaration that Nana Addo solved dumsor.
”Sarkodie or any other musician whose career is at moribundity can receive any amount of money to endorse a political party. However, the endorsement message should not be punctuated with naked lies or embellish with sickly untruths. It is an incontrovertible fact that His Excellency President John Dramani Mahama solved dumsor. And there is overwhelming evidence to this fact potentiated with data. Data cannot be hobbled with some low bars musical lyrics,” the Minority leader published on his Facebook page.
While, Kuami Eugene says he was uninformed the song was an endorsement for the president.
“Sarkodie only sent me the first verse of his rap which did not contain the endorsement for Nana Addo to aid me to do the chorus. It was only at the video shoot that we got to know of the second verse, we confronted Sark’s management, and they denied. I am uncomfortable, I still don’t know Sarkodie’s motive for the song. It will have an effect on my career, I wasn’t ready to vouch for any political party openly….it will not end here,” Kuami Eugene said.
