Akufo-Addo celebrity camp vs Mahama camp

Akufo-Addo celebrity camp vs Mahama camp

It seems the 2016 political campaign is hinged on endorsement from chiefs and celebrities.

Both Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party and John Dramani Mahama of the New Democratic Congress have both been endorsed on several occasions by some celebrities, mostly musicians.

Some of these celebrities have become actual campaign members of the party they supported; we're looking at you John Dumelo; other celebrities are defects from previous parties they had endorsed, and some are just newbies to the whole political scene.

YEN takes a side by side comparative look at the celebrities who hang with Akufo-Addo and the stars who hang with President John Mahama.

John Dumelo - John Mahama vs. Wisa Greid - Nana Addo

John Dumelo vs Wisa Greid

John Dumelo would certainly win this fight. Wisa has an atrocious case of public nudity that's he's still trying to wiggle his way out of. His endorsement of Nana Addo carries almost zero weight and most probably would have a negative impact.

Mzbel - John Mahama vs. Lucky Mensah - Nana Addo

Mzbel - John Mahama vs. Lucky Mensah - Nana Addo

This might be hard to call, considering both Mzbel and Lucky Mensah have shown how far they'd go for their parties. But technically, Lucky's endorsement of the NPP is weightier since he is a defect from the NDC.

This bout might seem easy to call. Most people in Accra would pick Kwabena Kwabena as the obvious victor but Mr. beautiful does have a massive fanbase amongst Kumawood movie fans.
