I don’t want to destroy their career – Mahama on no celebrities in 2020 campaign

Former President of Ghana John Dramani Mahama has revealed he does not want to involve celebrities in his 2020 campaign because he’s learnt that joining politics kills their career.

According to him, most Ghanaians lack an understanding of political endorsements and therefore vent at celebrities for taking a stance which later affects their creative careers.

To him, musicians endorsing other political parties does not change the love he has for their music and see nothing wrong with their decisions.

“It doesn’t amount to an endorsement. We don’t understand some of these things, in Ghana when a musician makes music for a political party, then he comes against a lot of antipathy from the supporters of the other political party and that shouldn’t be the case. But unfortunately that’s what happens.”

“So in this particular campaign, I have tried to discourage as much as possible getting celebrities involved in our campaign because it leads to a destruction of their careers and so If you’ll notice I haven’t gone around with celebrities and musicians because our politics does not understand those things. I don’t have any antipathy or anger with anybody who endorses Nana Addo,” the former President said in an interview on Accra-based Starr FM which was monitored by MyNewsGh.com.

Sarkodie and Samini have released some songs to throw their weight behind the second term bid of the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
