David Aja, the man behind the popular NDC campaign song ‘Onaapo’ has revealed that he received no financial reward for the song he sung for the President John Mahama and the NDC.
According to him, he did the song because of the love he had for the party and not becausehe was approached by anyone or offered money. This is what he had to say when asked why he did the song;
“I was not approached at all. I started following the party when Prof. Mills was the candidate so I did a song for him but God called him and another attractive man came and I did a song for him. People are appreciating me for the song because they think I have done a good job. But no one has paid me because I did it to support my party and whatever anybody gives me or didn’t give me will not stop me from doing a song for my party”.
On why he chose the particular title for the song, this is what he had to say on that;
John Dramani Mahama is an attractive and very marketable material hence the choice of Onaapo.
“You see when you have something that is so beautiful in Ga you have no other explanation but just to say Onaapo. So Onaapo is just a term to say Mahama is too much, he is too much,”
