Kumawood star Mercy Asiedu endorses Akufo-Addo

Kumawood star Mercy Asiedu endorses Akufo-Addo

Around this time four years ago, openly endorsing a particular party or presidential candidate was considered unthinkable for Kumawood stars.

Openly doing politics amounted to career crucifixion and actors who did it, such as Mr Beautiful, were ostracised by the Kumawood producers.

For instance, many Kumasi residents boycotted Mr Beautiful's movies after he endorsed President John Mahama.

This year, however, Kumawood stars, have freely spoken out in favour of their preferred candidates.

Last week, it was Agya Koo who came out with a strong endorsement of the New Patriotic Party's Nana Akufo-Addo.

Today, Mercy Asiedu has joined Agya Koo, Mr Beautiful and others top actors  in doing the "unthinkable" - endorsing a presidential candidate.

She has endorsed Nana Akufo-Addo and has offered her support to enable him win the December elections.
