NPP’s Nana Addo loves Shatta Wale and according to him, he will come into power like ‘Kakai’
Flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Addo, has declared he is a big fan of self acclaimed dancehall king Shatta Wale. The NPP candidate revealed this in a Twitter post on Tuesday.
It can be recalled that the artiste’s song was repeatedly played like a national anthem at the NPP’s manifesto launch on Sunday. Out of his love for Shatta Wale’s songs, Nana Addo reportedly stated he is coming into power like Kakai -shatta’s most popular song.
Out of gratitude, the self acclaimed dance hall king reacted to the NPP’s massive use of his song during the launch. According to him, little did he know that Nana Addo was his fan. He had also gone further to label this year’s election “Shattatics”. He wrote:
I never knew Nana Akuffo was a great fan… U deh come like kakai ampa… This years politics is called shattatics.
Akufo Addo in a reply to Shatta’s tweet said, “Yes, I’m a big fan!”, declaring he is indeed a fan of the Kakai hitmaker
Shatta Wale has gained more popularity to his already hyped name in this pre-election period. The two main political parties are using his songs in their campaigns towards the upcoming December 7 election. As we know, the incumbent National Democratic Congress (NDC) has been using Shatta’s ‘Mahama Paper’ as their campaign song. It is now clear that just like Mahama, Nana Addo loves Shatta Wale as he has also started using one of his songs – ‘Kakai’.
Although the artiste had earlier said he was not going to endorse any political party or candidate, these candidates out of their love for his music, have still gone ahead to use his songs in their gatherings. The NDC has continued using his ‘Mahama Paper’, despite his assertion that the song was not meant for the party.
Shatta in a social media post stated he will not support any party, but will rather intensify his campaign for peace during and after the election.The artiste however, declared his readiness to perform at political functions regardless of the party involved.
