Comic actor Kalybos, known in private as Richard Asante, has spoken amid criticisms of his recent campaign for NPP MP Lydia Alhassan at Ayawaso West Wuogon.
Kalybos, Bismark The Joke, Prince David Osei, and other movie stars were recently spotted on campaign in the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency.
In videos which have since singe gone viral, Kalybos and others were seen busily campaigning for President Nana Akufo-Addo and Lydia Alhassan who is being challenged by John Dumelo for her seat
The videos triggered a lot of criticisms from other stars and social media users who felt the Kalybos and his group should not have campaigned against their colleague.
In a lengthy reply on social media, Kalybos has hit back at the critics and called them hypocrites for the many comments they made about him and the other NPP campaigners.
According to him, he is an NPP supporter who went on a campaign tour in many constituencies including that of Dumelo and even the actor understands that.
Kalybos explained that he did not go to campaign against Dumelo but to campaign for Lydia Alhassan and the NPP as part of his democratic rights but because of hypocrisy, some people have decided to call him bad.
He wondered what those people, especially the entertainers who are lambasting him, had done to support Dumelo's campaign and until and other colleagues went to campaign for the NPP.
For Kalybos, it was all an attempt to draw a wedge between him and Dumelo but he stated that it was futile because they were on good terms.
"For your information, John Dumelo and I are very cool and we are not determined, enemies. So stop creating room for that cus he knows what democracy and friendship is," he partly read.
Meanwhile, some other celebrities such as Joselyn Dumas, Xandy Kamel, Fred Nuamah, Beverly Afaglo, and Belinda Dzatta, have shown massive support to him with James Gardiner promising to be there for Dumelo.
Gardiner, in a post sighted by YEN.com.gh, praised Dumelo for his resilience, and the efforts he put into helping the people of the constituency during the Corona pandemic.
He also urged Dumelo never to give up in his quest to enter parliament.
