December 22 is my birthday – Samini tells Akufo-Addo
Stonebwoy is not the only artiste who also wants to visit the President at the Flagstaff House. Samini wants to be there too.
Samini is the second dance hall artiste who has come out to ask Nana Akufo-Addo to invite him for his gift after Shatta Wale’s recent visit to the President.
This is after dance hall act Stonebwoy had also asked Nana Addo to invite him for a gift just as he presented the gold-plated coat f arms to the Shatta Wale.
Samini, who is known to be one of the arch-rivals of Shatta Wale in a recent tweet, has also expressed interest in meeting the President. In the tweet, he thanked the President for endearing himself to entertainment and also reminded him of his birth date. “@NAkufoAddo thanks for bridging the gap between entertainment and government. Now that doors are open, December22 is #myown oo akye,” he said.
On October 17, 2017, Nana Addo wished Shatta Wale a happy birthday in pidgin English and asked that he paid him a visit at the Flagstaff House. President Akufo-Addo tweeted: “Happy birthday @shattawalegh! You for come visit me for Flagstaff House o!”
On Wednesday 1st November, 2017, the ‘Dance hall King’ visited the President at the Flagstaff House and was presented with a gold-plated coat of arms.
Shatta Wale at the visit, asked Nana Addo to make Stonebwoy and him music ambassadors and to also fulfil his 2016 campaign promises for the creative arts. Samini’s addition to the equation, some have said, is a good augury for the arts because it dissipates the rivalry that had existed between Samini and Shatta Wale; and Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale over the years.
