Reigning Vodafone Ghana Music Awards artiste of the year, Kuami Eugene has revealed that he was not aware of any political lines in the ‘happy day’ song by Sarkodie when he was featured on.
The song which was released earlier today has some lines which many believed to be an endorsement of the NPP. In the song, Sarkodie mentions that if in the past he talked about erratic electricity supply (dumsor) and inflation but can now enjoy Free Senior High School policy rolled out by the NPP, then Nana deserves another term. He also ended the song with the popular NPP mantra “the battle is still the Lord’s”.
Although Sarkodie has not openly announced his political affiliation or endorsed the NPP with the song, Kuami Eugene says he is uncomfortable with the song and the reaction it is eliciting from a section of the public.
Speaking to MzGee on Showbuzz on 3FM 92.7, he stated that he’s uncomfortable with the song and the endorsement of Prez. Akufo Addo, something that happened at his blind side.
“I have every right to be uncomfortable with the song, because, I hate to be kept in the shadows,” he added.
According to him, it was during the video shoot that he realized that some portions of the song had tags that endorsed the President.
“It was during the video shoot that I first heard the endorsement for the President with the tags of ‘Nana Toaso’ and the Battle is the Lord’s,” he explained.
He went on to say that his discomfort caused him to alert his management to reach out to Sarkodie’s management for clarity, and the guys from Sarkcess stated that, the song is not an endorsement song.
“I am uncomfortable but not disappointed in the final outcome of the song because it is craft and Sarkodie mau have his reasons for doing that and I won’t trash it.”
