Kwame Asare Obeng, popularly known as Kwame A Plus, has solidified his intentions to switch from his music career into politics with an announcement to vie for the position of constituency chairman in the Gomoa Central Constituency.
The rapper who is a vocal advocate for the ruling New Patriotic Party, made this intention known via social media.
According to him, starting his journey into politics with a constituency chairman position is no small feat, as he will be in charge of a large area, and it will be good for his party if they won the position for the said constituency.
“Eventually I want to become the president of Ghana, but for now I want to be the Constituency Chairman, so long as we have life all other things shall follow.
If there is life you keep dreaming and dreaming big, looking at opportunities and how to use it to help people,” A Plus said.
He further stated that for his part, he wants to know the people from the grassroots; to understand and work with them.
According to a MyJoyOnline.com report, in response to a question on whether he would recommend shifting to politics for his friends in showbiz, the rapper noted that it was not his place to tell people what to do.
He said, that his colleagues live in their various communities and as such, should know of the issues in their constituencies.
