John Mahama made social media explode on Monday, 15 August, when he made an appearance at a shopping mall on Mother’s Day.
The former president of Ghana was spotted with his daughter, Farida Mahama, at a shopping mall and his eager fans could not help but scramble to take photos with him.
In one of the photos sighted by YEN.com.gh, the former president is seen at the checkout counter.
New information from Prince Kaye, who posted the images on social media network, Facebook shows that the shopping mall shown was the Palace Hypermall at Spintex.
John Mahama, with his hand around his daughter, was clearly checking out from the shopping center as the eager fan took a selfie with him.
In another image posted by the same Prince Teye on social media, the president and his daughter were almost mobbed as people clamored to grab a picture with him.
More images on social media show the former head of state busy with his shopping as people went to great lengths to capture the moment.
However, some social media users have accused John Mahama of trying to “copy” former president of the United State, Barack Obama’s style.
Earlier, a video of Obama shopping made rounds on social media and some users drew the conclusion that Mahama was trying to ride the “hype” to gain extra popularity
