Ghanaians would go to the polls in December 2020 to elect a president and parliamentary candidates for the next parliament.
As is usual of any election year, many people would be gearing up to vote for their preferred candidates to represent them for the next four years.
Politicians would also be going on campaign tours to influence voters to vote for them to lead the nation.
What has now become a norm is the fact that influential people like celebrities now canvass for votes for their preferred candidates.
Over the years, many celebrities have pledged their support and even gone ahead to campaign for their preferred presidential candidate.
