It is not immediately known why the NPP youth went on the rampage in Fantana's mother's house.

However, it could be the aftermath of her recapturing that seat for the NDC in the just-ended 2020 Elections.

She snatched the seat from the incumbent member of parliament, Paul Essien of the NPP, who occupied the seat from 2016.

Paul Essien, who was the Deputy Minister for Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs in 2016 beat the NDC Parliamentary candidate to represent the constituents.

This happens to be the first time the mother of Rufftown record’s signee has contested in a general election.

Before the elections, Dancehall musician, Shatta Wale, had mounted her campaign platform to ask people to vote for her.

And it is believed Shatta Wale’s endorsement and campaign influenced the outcome of the parliamentary elections in Jomoro constituency considering his influence in the showbiz industry.

Meanwhile, Mahama has lost the 2020 Elections to his fiercest political rival, Akufo-Addo of the NPP.

He polled a total of 6,214,889 votes, representing 47.36%, while Akufo-Addo won with 6,730,413 votes, representing 51.59% of the total vote cast.

The NDC has rejected the outcome of the elections describing it as "fictionalised" and "flawed".

In a related development, actress Tracey Boakye has been attacked by some NDC members for Mahama's loss.
