High-life musician Lucky Mensah has said he supported the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the year 2008 because the leader of the party then Prof. Evans Atta Mills appeared vulnerable and pitiful at the time.
According to the Musician, he was not really a politician but in 2016 during the campaign, he realized that almost everyone in the Creative Arts sector supported Akufo-Addo while Professor Mills was left in the corner.
He added during a one on one interview with this reporter, that top musicians like Daddy Lumba, K.K Fosu, Kwabena Kwabena, A Plus and some others neglected the late Professor John Evans Fiifi Atta Mills for Akufo Addo.
He revealed that from the way the late Prof Mills was “walking alone” and how he used to address people, plus the fact that he was a Fante, he felt pity for him so when the election went for a second round, he just decided to enter the studio and record a song for him.
As to why he has now decided to do music for the ruling New Patriotic Party and join president Akufo-Addo’s campaign, he noted that the late Prof Atta Mills deceived him and did not fulfill the promises he gave to Ghanaians, whiles John Mahama also collapsed his business.
“I am a bread baker apart from being a Musician, but during John Mahama’s time my business collapsed so I decided to vote and do a song for Akufo-Addo who promised free SHS and also to fix dumsor which he has fulfilled.”
