Multiple award-winning highlife superstar, George Kwabena Adu, known by the stage name Kwabena Kwabena has been speaking about his association with the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Kwabena Kwabena composed a campaign song in support of the then-presidential candidate, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, in the heat of the 2016 general elections.
Akufo-Addo went on to win the presidential election.
Speaking on Starr FM’s Starr Chat show on Wednesday, June 9, 2020, Kwabena Kwabena disclosed that he has still not been compensated for the popular campaign song—Vote number 1.
“The song wasn’t sponsored nor paid for by anyone from the party, I did it out of the love for Nana Akufo-Addo who was the flagbearer.
“Though I wasn’t expecting anything, even God who created his word always needs us to show gratitude, that’s why he excepts us to worship him all the time, “ he told Nana Aba Anamoah on Starr Chat.
Kwabena Kwabena apologises to Ghanaians

While speaking in an interview with Ohemaa Woyeje on Angel FM and sighted by YEN.com.gh, the Adult Music crooner said he wanted to ask for forgiveness for certain personal decisions he took in line with his music career.
