Actor John Dumelo was put on the defensive by a hostile follower online, forcing him to proudly stand and declare his pride in his political activism over the past year or so.

Dumelo said he was not ashamed of his support for President Mahama, rejecting the premise that his support had been a ‘disgrace’.

A twitter user had tweeted at the actor, as part of a back and forth, that he was simply advising him to avoid ‘future gargantuan and enormous unprecedented disgrace’.

But Dumelo swiftly hit back to defend himself, saying his support of the former President cannot be branded as a disgrace.

“It wasn’t a disgrace supporting Jm. I stood for what I believed in.” he tweeted back.

He added: “@ said let’s all bury our differences and move Ghana forward.”

John Dumelo was all in for John Mahama in the election, and authored a post a few days before election day enumerating the ‘sacrifices’ he had made to support him. Mahama ultimately lost, and Nana Akufo-Addo ascended to office earlier today after he took the Presidential oath.
