Kwaku Manu has denied reports that he threw his weight behind the incumbent president and that New Democratic Congress.
A video which was widely circulated on social media showed the Kumawood actor, Kwaku Manu saying that he supported the "umbrella party".
The video also continues with Kwaku Manu talking about how the public abuses Ghanaian celebrities who publicly declare support for a political party.
Just before the video ended, Kwaku Manu is heard saying that "he has chosen John Mahama and the NDC and hopes this does not mean people will stop buying his movies."
However, in an interview with the Accra-based Adom FM, the actor insisted that someone had deliberately cropped out that part of a longer video he had put out as a message calling for peace.
“The ones who edited the video only showed one part because I wore a T-shirt with both NDC and NPP logos, why did they not show the full video and instead showed the first portion where I talked about the NDC…?,” he queried.
Celebrities like John Dumelo and Mzbel have thrown their open support for Mahama.
