According the Organizer, assertions that A Plus’ composition of a song for the NPP led to the party’s victory in the 2016 elections are completely wrong.
He challenged the musician to prove his relevance to the NPP’s victory by composing a song for the struggling Convention People’s Party (CPP) in order to get the part into power come 2020.
In an interview with Okay FM, Kwame Baffoe, popularly known as Abronye DC said: “The CPP has not governed this country since the overthrow of Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah….if he A Plus thinks he is the one who composed music for NPP to come to power he should do same for the CPP. He only remixed a song and claimed he composed it….we know the original composer.”
He further laid into A Plus by suggesting that the musician had “plagiarized someone’s song” and wants to take credit for it.
According to him, the likes of Agya Koo and Lucky Mensah all played various roles in the NPP’s rise to power, but have not acted in the manner the comedian said.
“You are not even the original composer of the song. It was plagiarized and remixed so do not do not lay claim to it and beware that did not even bring us to power. His songs and the polling station agent who contributed to the fortunes of the party,” he added.
