Award-winning rapper, Sarkodie, known in private life as Michael Owusu Addo, gave a big boost to the campaign of President Nana Akufo-Addo.
In his song titled Happy Day, Sarkodie endorsed Akufo-Addo for a second term as President of Ghana.
The song which features VGMA 2020 Artiste of the Year Kuami Eugene was released on Monday, November 2, 2020.
While the Happy Day song can be generally described as a track to praise God, the versatile rapper was able to infuse political messages in it as he endorsed Akufo-Addo.
After talking about his life and praising God for his life, Sarkodie chipped in some issues he had with the National Democratic Congress (NDC) who criticised him for releasing songs to take a swipe at John Mahama’s government.
Mentioning the Dumsor and Inflation songs he did at the time, Sarkodie did a fast-forward to Akufo-Addo’s time and pointed to the stable electricity and Free Senior High School.
He then proceeded to urge Akufo-Addo to continue to govern saying ‘Nana Toaso’ which literally translates as ‘continue, Nana.’
At the end of the song, Sarkodie cleverly chipped in the battle is still the Lord’s which has been a longtime slogan for AKufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) since he first contested the presidency in 2008.
So the big question now is, did Sarkodie really endorse Nana Akufo-Addo for the 2020 election or his song was made for his own gains?
