Obour's political career

In 2020, Obour contested the NPP primaries elections in the Asante Akyem South constituency as a parliamentary candidate.

He, unfortunately, lost to a 64 vote difference

The former Musiga president was widely tipped to lose as a result of accusations that he was not transparent when he was the boss of the musicians union.

He was later appointed as secretary to the NPP 2020 Campaign Ashanti Region Advertising Committee.

After 20 years of growing his dreadlocks, he cut them off because he was taking a break from music and needed a new look to rebrand himself.
