'Promote our songs' - Musicians tell Mahama
A section of Ghanaian musicians in a popular whatsapp group made up of musicians and music experts are not too cool with ex president John Dramani Mahama for promoting a foreign song on his social media handle on instagram.
President Mahama was seen in a video after Valentines day in Kenya singing a Barry Whyte Song- Cant get enough of you babe and this has caused the anguish in them.
According to these musicians, the president is a person with enough following so everything he does goes a long way to promote the activity, therefore anytime he gets the opportunity to do stuff like this, he should do it with the Ghana first mentality instead of what was seen in that video.
“How can a whole Ghana president be singing a love song on Valentines day and the song is not from the people he has served. This is not Ghanaian at all and some of us are very disappointed in him especially when he knew he will be putting it out for public views. Imagine if it had been a song from a Ghanaian, do you have an idea what it would have added to that musician. Please we love you despite the fact that you are not in power so do love us back” some comments from the group stated
