Amakye Dede was recently spotted at an NPP event in Agogo during a campaign stop with flagbearer Nana Akuffo-Addo.
Like the John Dumelo’s and the Mr Beautiful’s, Amakye’s appearance showed where his political allegiance lay, or so we thought. 
The legendary highlife singer has since come out to categorically deny that was the instant, saying that he does not belong to any political party.
Speaking on Peace Fm, Amakye said as a singer, he was contracted to do a job, which he did. He therefore denied that he was a member of the NPP.
“What I always say is God has given me the talent to sing, and it is through this that I earn my living, therefore I was as usual contracted by an NPP MP who paid me and at the same time hired my singing band to entertain their members during the commissioning of their new office at Agogo, in the Asante Akim North constituency, of which I exactly did as per the agreement,” he said.
“I have never opened my mouth to say I belong to party A or B because as a Ghanaian musician I am ready to work with all citizens and also every political party Ghanaians elect to lead this country who is ready to pay me for services rendered. This is because it is not only the NPP or NDC who have made me who I am today”. The ‘Iron Man’ added to his submission.
