Popular Kumawood actor, Michael Afranie, has started a massive campaign for the NDC in the Ashanti Region where he lives.
The actor wore an NDC T-shirt with party paraphernalia decorating his neck in a pose with his colleague Agya Koo, who also wore an NPP T-shirt.
They signaled with their fingers the numbers of their presidential aspirants on the ballot paper – thus, Afranie signaled 2 for Mahama, while Agya Koo signaled 1 for Akufo-Addo.
Fans have commented on the photo reading various meanings into it.
Abena, for instance, wrote that she thought the NDC was not using any celebrities for this year’s election campaign:
abena_kwartema: “But I thought NDC said no celebrity is campaigning for them this year, anaaa mose mab)dam.”
Pokuaa admired the fact that though the celebrities supported different political parties, they are at peace with each other:
pokuaaeno: “Peace.... I luv u guys.”
Keenme also admired them:
kee.nme: “This is nice.”
Akosua revealed that Afranie had contested as an independent candidate in her district in the last election:
kristashakosua: “Eii Micheal Afranie last four yrs he was an independent candidate in my district oo.”
Afia did not like that the two grownup men are into mainstream politics:
mummys_girl_afia_papabi: “By now u should be home telling your grandchildren anansesem you are here doing politics.”
Meanwhile, Afranie had earlier supported Mahama with an amount of GHC1 about a year ago when the NDC raised funds to support his nomination filling.
He seems to have made a brave decision as the Ashanti Region where he lives is known to be a stronghold of the NDC.
Agya Koo, on the other hand, has joined three other celebrities to endorse and release campaign songs for the NPP, as published earlier by YEN.com.gh.
