Highlife singer Nana Quame, who performed for many dignitaries at this year’s Kwahu Easter festival- including New Patriotic Party flagbearer Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo- has endorsed the 72 year old for President.
Nana Quame made the choice known during an appearance on ‘The Zone’ on Starr fm Tuesday.
The multiple award winning artiste said although he has no vote, due to being unable to register, he feels Nana Akuffo-Addo would be the right man to take the country forward.
“The truth of the matter is, I haven’t got a vote because I wasn’t around when the registration was done but if I got a vote…I will vote for the NPP for one or two reasons.” He said.
He added that it is only in Ghana that people get squeamish when celebrities endorse politicians, as it is a common practice in the US and the UK.
“I think it’s good to endorse presidential candidates because it’s a practice that is common in the US and U.K and I don’t see anything wrong with it so if I have to endorse NPP why not?”
Nana Akuffo-Addo would be going up against John Mahama for the second time, after he lost the 2012 elections following Mahama taking over the mantle from the deceased Professor John Evans Atta Mills.
The singer survived a car crash whilst returning from performing in Kwahu.
