Highlife musician, Lucky Mensah has once again pledged his commitment to supporting Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, through thick and thin, to win the 2020 general election for the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
In an interview with SVTV Africa, the renowned highlife artiste told host DJ Nyaami that, he together with his team, will remain in the corner of Ghana’s leader until success comes their way again as far as the 2020 general election is concerned.
“Oh by God’s grace, I will sing for the NPP come 2020. Nana Addo must complete his eight years. So come rain or shine, I’ve to support Nana Addo so that he can complete his eight years and finish the good things he started. I know the good things he has started, he will bring it to an end and Ghana will be a place to be for all. So it’s impossible for him to end his tenure without completing his full term,” he noted.
According to the ‘Nkratuo’ singer, Akufo-Addo’s achievements comes nowhere close to his predecessor when achievements are being compared, hence, the need for Ghanaians to give him the second chance to finish his term.
Asked why the NPP and not the National Democratic Congress as he did some years back, he replied, “Oh as for NPP, they are appreciative, that’s how I see it. Wherever I meet NPP members, they show some gratitude for what I did for them, that alone is encouragement.”
Lucky Mensah has often been on the receiving end of criticism having publicly declared his support for the NPP.
He, however, added that despite the criticisms that have come his way, he doesn’t regret campaigning for the NPP.
Lucky Mensah has been off the music scene since his association with local politics in previous years.
The highlife crooner is however back onto the music scene with a brand new jam titled ‘Tonight’.
