Barima Sydney joins John Boadu's campaign team
Ace Ghanaian musician, Barima Sydney, has joined the campaign team of the National Organizer and Acting General Secretary of the NPP, John Boadu who is contesting for the General Secretary position of the governing party.
The popular hitmaker, often described as Ghana's most controversial rap artist after releasing series of controversial songs including the famous Obia nye obia, Abuskeleke, Tinana panpanan, Scent no and African Money tracks, has always found expression in Ghana's political scene with his unbeatable lyrical dexterity.
Sydney, also known as Ghana's Rap Ninja, says, his decision to, not only endorse John Boadu's candidature but also join his campaign, is anchored on his belief that the acting general secretary has over the years proven to be a political gem, whose outstanding qualities cannot be matched with that of his contemporaries.
According to the hitmaker, the NPP is blessed to have a hardworking man like John Boadu, whose instrumentality as National Organizer, Acting General Secretary and Director of Operations for the 2016 campaign, ensured an unprecedented landslide victory for the then opposition party which had very little resources for campaign.
Inspired by John Boadu's enviable political exploits, the multiple international award winning artist, Barimah Sydney, recently composed a meritorious song entitled, "JB Ayeebida" for the NPP's Acting Chief Scribe in which song, he told the JB POLITICAL STORY recounting his inestimable experience and contributions to the fortunes of the NPP and Ghana at large particularly in the political milieu.
The popular artist, whose, "Scento no hit song" was officially adopted by the NPP for the triumphant 2004 elections, has since been with John Boadu's campaign team as they crisscross the length and breadth of this country visiting the various constituencies.
Undoubtedly, John Boadu, despite his stature in the party today, is putting up the most rigorous campaign in the lead-up to the party's National Conference as he is committed to visiting each of the 275 constituencies in the country.
He is also using the opportunity to assess the strength and current state of the party in all the constituencies with particular attention on party-government relationship and resolving the concerns of the party's grassroots while selling his message of empowerment and resourcing of party structures.
The John Boadu's campaign team which includes Barima Sydney, is currently touring the Brong Ahafo Region and has already visited 20 out of the 29 constituencies as at Thursday, May 10, on which day, they visited Nkoranza North and South, Kintampo North and South, Wenchi, Techiman North and South Constituencies.
The team has taken a break and left for Accra to complete the filing of JB's nominations and is expected to resume sometime next week to tour the remaining constituencies in the region.
