Ghana’s Dancehall Champion, Shatta Wale, has criticised his colleague Samini for endorsing Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
He said Samini cannot be trusted because he was the same person who lambasted the celebrities who endorsed various political parties in 2016.
According to him, it is wrong for Samini to preach something and do a different thing.
Shatta Wale was speaking in an interview with Angel FM in Kumasi, where he had gone to to lean support to some underground artists who aim at becoming top musicians.
He described Samini as a confused person and a liar who cannot stand by his words, calling on Ghanaians not to trust him.
“How can you blast celebrities for endorsing political parties and later make a U-turn to endorse one political party. Samini is confused and a big liar. Ghanaians should not trust him,” Shatta Wale said according to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Ghpage.com.
“As for Samini, I will have time for him soon. He can’t deceive Ghanaians like that,” Shatta Wale added.
His rants follow a video of Samini clearly stating why it was wrong for celebrities to endorse and publicly support political parties.
In that video earlier published by YEN.com.gh, Samini said one’s fanbase is larger and more important than a political party.
However, four years down the line, he seems to have forgotten his words and has released a song to endorse and promote the NPP.
Many of his followers have threatened to unfollow him and have nothing to do with him.
Others have defended Samini saying it is only a fool who does not change his mind.
YEN.com.gh earlier published four top musicians who have endorsed and released campaign songs for the NPP.
