Most social media users were waiting patiently to pounce on Dancehall artiste, Samini if the electoral fortunes of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) had gone otherwise. Samini was one of the highly hyped artiste who entered into the studio and performed various tracks for the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo-led government.
Even though other artistes such as Oman Acheampong (of Tabita Kum fame), Diana Asamoah, Michael Owusu Addo aka Sarkodie and others had also written tracks and performed for the NPP, Samini’s own dominated the media landscape because that was the very first time he was making such a move.
After Samini had launched his NPP campaign song, his social media platforms were flooded with verbal missiles from some NDC supporters and others who tag themselves as “neutrals”. Samini even went to the extent of hosting Episodes of himself revealing the goodies the Akufo-Addo-led government had been sharing for Ghanaians. Upon all these stuff, Samini himself knew he was gonna be hot if Nana Addo had lost.
Now that the electoral processes have gone in for the favour Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Samini will now have the bragging rights over all those who had bashed him for choosing the sitting president.
Many wondered how Samini would’ve felt if Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo had lost this election. To Samini and his management, they can now align themselves with the Presidency since he “helped” put them there. But, we have not forgotten how Samini was humiliated for trying to raise the hand of the president during one of the campaign tours.
