The popular television personality Kwame Dzokoto shocked everyone when he made his intentions to contest for a seat in Parliament known, but after election day, he was the one left in shock.
Dzokoto, speaking to Showbiz, said he was so well received during his rounds in his constituency, Tarkwa Nsuaem, that he never contemplated losing the seat.
Thus when results were tallied and it turned out he had lost, he could not believe it.
“Actually, it was a shocker because I was very well received during my rounds and I didn’t attack anybody’s personality during my campaign.” he said.
“I believed I could use my status as a parliamentarian to advance the cause of the arts and creative industry. For example, if a radio presenter isn’t being paid well, I could talk on their behalf and I could help push some of the laws in showbiz.”
According to the Edziban host, he would be back in 2020 to contest for the seat once again.
