According to the Ghanaian dancehall act, he sees his colleague to be confused because he is the same person who once vehemently spoke against celebrities who endorsed political parties or candidates in 2016.
Shatta Wale speaking on Kumasi-based Angel FM is reported to have said that “ you told Ghanaians including your supporters that you will never endorse any political party. You condemned celebrities endorsing political parties but now Samini has endorsed NPP. He (Samini) is confused and a liar“.
A publication seen on Ghanaweb.com reported the ‘Mahama Paper’ singer to have added that “supporters of Samini and Ghanaians should not trust Samini again for making a sudden U-turn on political party endorsement“.
Beating war drums to take on his seasonal rival, he further stated: “I will surely get time for Samini very soon because I won’t allow him to deceive Ghanaians. You told us you won’t do it but now you are happy doing it. Liar and confused Samini can never be trusted“.
Shatta’s comment is coming after a 2016 interview of Samini popped up after he composed ‘Kpoyaka’ a campaign for Nana Addo and NPP.
In the Joy News interview, Simini could be heard saying that “Personally my take is that I don’t think it’s too healthy to do that as a people’s person because you represent the masses and you have various political parties affiliations listening to you music at the same time without any political intentions so you appeal to a broader audience at ago”
He continued that ” so when you take sides in a serious issue like this concerning serious decision making for the country’s welfare and you take sides and just maybe you happen to offend a huge fan by that move, it goes a long way to affect your career going forward”.
Speaking on the unethical aspect of such political endorsements, Samini also noted that entertainers are to speak for the people, hence, if any entertainer supports any flagbearer who is propagating lies, it means the entertainer is responsible for helping the politician to lie to the people and that makes him corrupt.
