Sensational Highlife artiste Kuami Eugene, known in private life as Eugene Marfo, has discounted the notion that he has endorsed President Nana Akufo-Addo and the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
According to Eugene, though he featured on Sarkodie's new song, Happy Day, which has now been tagged as an endorsement, he did not do the song as such.
Sarkodie released a new song titled Happy Day which features Kuami Eugene on Monday, November 2, 2020.
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 praised Akufo-Addo and urged him to continue ruling.
The song has caused a stir on social media since it was released as many Ghanaians have deemed it as an endorsement.
Reacting to the song and the whole conversation about an endorsement, Kuami Eugene has denied any knowledge of it.
In an interview with MzGee on 3FM on Tuesday, November 3, 2020, the 2020 VGMA Artiste of the Year indicated that Sarkodie only sent him the first verse of rap.
After getting the first verse he understood the concept of the song was praises to God and thus did his verses to reflect that.
But after he got his version done and met Sarkodie for the video shoot, he realised the rapper's verses was with the political messages.
“I still don’t know the idea behind the whole song. I am just uncomfortable that I can’t just defend myself because I have no idea," 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.
