"Dear Legonites, I’m thrilled to have you back in school. Let's kick off this semester with positivity and enthusiasm!" he said in the X post.

Reacting to this, however, Harris said the rapper should not be deceived into thinking he could ride on his fame as a celebrity to win the SRC election.

In a video sighted by on TikTok, Harris said UG students would rely solely on his policy proposals and not be hoodwinked by his celebrity status in deciding who becomes the president of the SRC.

He said they would critically scrutinise every policy proposal the rapper may present during the campaign before deciding whether to cast their ballot for him.

"Listen, you people should tell him that this is not GIMPA where Samini will go for SRC President and they will vote for him. In the University of Ghana; we don't care about your fame. We will hit your stomach if you bring some trash policies. We don't care; we won't vote for you," he said.
