Lucky Mensah committed the cardinal sin of switching between Ghana’s two major parties just in the space of four years – because of money, Mzbel swears.
The musician has dropped a song for the NPP this election cycle, after supporting the NDC in 2012. Speaking to Onua Fm Wednesday, Mensah said he has been receiving some threats from NDC supporters for the decision that he made to dump them.
“Some NDC supporters called to warn me. Even yesterday a lady called to threaten me but I am for the country. I have had several calls of threats but that will not stop me”, he told the station.
Lucky Mensah went on to cite examples of prominent political personalities who switched between the two major parties, and does not understand why he should be receiving all these threats.
“The late Major Retired Courage Quarshigah was in NDC but left for the NPP. Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings was in NDC but left to form her party when she realized the NDC was not performing.
“So in the same way, I supported the NDC but I have realized I have disappointed Ghanaians by releasing a song and also campaigning for the NDC to win power that is why I have left for the NPP.”
He added that he would continue his campaign for the NPP irrespective of the threats that come his way.
“I will go to the NPP platforms to campaign for them and the song is also part of the campaign because I had believe in President John Mahama to push Ghana forward after the NPP government but he has disappointed Ghanaians”.
