Ghanaian Dancehall musician, Samini, has been criticised by some of his fans for publicly endorsing President Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Samini, after his endorsement, went ahead to release a campaign song titled Kpoyaka.
In the song, he praised the president highly and sang about how his policies transformed the lives of Ghanaians.
Samini also sang that Akufo-Addo was born to rule saying in the Akan language that: “We know you from ancient time that you were born to rule, that you are a showboy”.
The whole thing has angered some of his fans and they have threatened to unfollow him. Other believe that Samini actually took money from the NPP for the endorsement.
Hamzie, for instance, wrote plainly that he has to unfollow Samini:
h.a.m.z.i.e: “I have to unfollow you.”
Elija also commented that Samini’s fan base is bigger than any political party and it is sad that he wants to divide it:
elijahngubra: “Your fan base is bigger than any political party but I don't understand why you want to divide it.”
Toxic and Claude wondered how much money Samini took to do this to his fans:
wand3n_toxic: “Stop the following because of money..”
claudefeb: “How much they pay you for this yawa tunes Batman in Shatta Wale voice.”
Seth also had a similar view:
sethpdigal: “Tweaaaa Samini.. forget the money.”
Zankoto called him a hungry musician:
zankoto2020: “Some Hungry musicians sing political party praises.”
To Dagaati, it is business time for Samini:
rhanking_dagaati: “This is business tym.”
There were others, including actress Bibi Bright, and musician Praye Tietia, praising Samini:
eric_kwaku_larbi: “Good job @samini_dagaati.”

Meanwhile, Sarkodie has also declared publicly his support for the NPP and has also endorsed the president.
He also released a newly composed song featuring Kuami Eugene. This song, however, has generated massive controversy as Kuami Eugene has cried foul saying Sarkodie never informed him that it was a political song.
