President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has reacted to the endorsement of his second term bid by Sarkodie and Samini ahead of the 2020 elections on December 7.
Sarkodie and Samini came public on Monday, November 2, 2020, to endorse Akufo-Addo and his New Patriotic Party (NPP) for a second term in office.
Samini was the first to announce his support for Akufo-Addo by taking to social media to post his endorsement message on Monday, November 2, 2020.
Later in the day, the Dancehall artiste released a song titled Kpoyaka for Akufo-Addo's campaign. The song talks about the president's achievements so far.

Not long after, rapper Sarkodie also released a new song titled Happy Day which features Kuami Eugene.
While the Happy Day song can be generally described as a track to praise God, the versatile rapper was able to infuse political messages in it as he endorsed Akufo-Addo.
After talking about his life and praising God for his life, Sarkodie chipped in some issues he had with the National Democratic Congress (NDC) who criticised him for releasing songs to take a swipe at John Mahama's government.
Mentioning the Dumsor and Inflation songs he did at the time, Sarkodie did a fast-forward to Akufo-Addo's time and pointed to the stable electricity and Free Senior High School.
He then proceeded to urge Akufo-Addo to continue to govern saying 'Nana Toaso' which literally translates as 'continue, Nana.'
Impressed with the two songs in separate posts on his official Twitter handle, Akufo-Addo has sent shoutouts to both artistes.

Reacting to Samini's song, Akufo-Addo thanked the Dancehall star for what he described as a "super endorsement."
The tweet also shared a YouTube link for the Kpoyaka song urging followers to go and watch the video.
"A big thanks to @samini_dagaati for the SUPER ENDORSEMENT! Watch Kpoyaka by Samini here," Akufo-Addo's tweet read.
Going on to Sarkodie's Happy Day song, Akufo-Addo described it as a "nice song" while repeating a line in the song which had Sarkodie repeating one of Akufo-Addo's slogans.
"Nice song @sarkodie and @KuamiEugene. Indeed, the battle is still the Lord's. #4MoreForNana," he said.
Meanwhile, Ningo Prampram MP Sam George has spoken on the endorsement of President Nana Akufo-Addo's second term bid by Samini and Sarkodie.
In a post on his official Facebook page, the NDC MP suggested that Sarkodie and Samini took GHC500,000 to endorse Akufo-Addo.
Earlier, the NDC flagbearer John Mahama reacted to Sarkodie and Samini choosing Akufo-Addo instead of him.
In an interview, the former president said he still likes them despite them endorsing Akufo-Addo.
He then explained why he has not involved any celebrity in his campaign.
