The artist said that he didn't write the song in the hopes of getting paid by the NDC, but rather because he wanted to support his party due to his affection for it. A party which he has supported for some time now.
Speaking to Pulse Ghana, Mr. David Adja said that he had initially done a song for the late President Mills. So when President Mahama took over government due to President Mills's untimely passing, he decided to do a song for President Mahama.
"I started following the party when Prof. Mills was the candidate so I did a song for him but God called him and another attractive man came and I did a song for him.
People are appreciating me for the song because they think I have done a good job. But no one has paid me because I did it to support my party and whatever anybody gives me or didn't give me will not stop me from doing a song for my party".

It seems that the song was such a hit that artist and NPP supporter, Barima Sydney, made a remix of the song, one that has become an instant hit in the wake of President Elect, Nana Akufo Addo's landslide victory in the 2016 president elections last week.
David Adja said that even though Barima Sydney has done a remix, he did not seek Mr. Adja's permission, although this doesn't bother him in the least. He said that in future if he decided to do a cover song using one of Barima Sydney's tracks, he should not complain.
