Ghanaian entertainment, Derrick Kobina Bonney, better known as DKB, has released a video hours after the New Patriotic Party (NPP) organized its elections to select its parliamentary aspirants for the 2020 elections.
The event was held on Saturday, June 20, 2020, at designated centers all over the country.
The former president of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGHA), Bice Osei Kufuor, better known as Obour, contested for the Asante Akyem South seat.

He, however, lost to the incumbent, Kwaku Asare Boateng, by 66 votes.
Following Obour’s defeat in the election, DKB took to social media to share his opinion about the outcome of the election
According to him, Obour’s performance in the primaries was good and he has done his best as a young man.
He added that there are many years ahead and he is surprised about the level of hatred Ghanaians have for the former MUSIGHA boss.
DKB then wondered why some delegates had to raise Obour’s hopes with respect to his chances of winning, only to leave him disappointed after the results were declared.
Meanwhile, the incumbent Member of Parliament for Dome-Kwabenya, Ms. Sara Adwoa Safo has defeated Mike Oquaye Jnr in the parliamentary primaries of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
