Contemporary Highlife star, Kwabena Kwabena has opened up on what looks like a neglect by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo since he won power.
Kwabena Kwabena has been one of the top musicians who has supported President Akufo-Addo since 2008 when he took his first shot at the presidency.
After taking such a high risk, one would have thought his contributions to the party would have been rewarded now that Nana Addo and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) are in power.
But that does not seem to be the case as he has been literally ignored while others enjoy the fruits of his labour.
Just recently, thr Ministry of Tourism, Creative Arts and Culture failed to include him in the list of 50 celebrities named as tourism ambassadors to lead a campaign to sell Ghana's Tourism to the world.
Also, while the President tweeted a pidgin birthday message to Shatta Wale on October 27 inviting to him the Flagstaff House, he failed to send similar wishes to Kwabena Kwabena whose birthday fell on the same day.
This has been described by many as a snub by the president.
But speaking in an interview with Graphic Showbiz, Kwabena Kwabena stated that he is not peeved at all by the seeming neglect.
"God rewards the good deeds of people and that is what I'm looking forward to . At least, I have accomplished my aim of campaigning for a better party to government the country . that is enough satisfaction for me ." Besides , my career is still at it peak and I'm thankful to God that it still feeds me and I don't need to depend on anyone" he said
For him, though he has all the qualities to take up such a role but was not selected, he has taken it in his stride becuase "those who selected the ambassadors should have a better explanation on why I was not included".
According to him, the reason he put his career at risk for the NPP was not for his personal benefits but his desire to see policies that will improve the entire music industry.
"This is the main reason why I put my career at risk to campaign for the party. It shouldn't just be about me but the whole music industry. There must be right policies to push Musicians to the next level to compete favourably on the market".
