Prince David Osei has also urged voters to throw John Mahama whom he describes as the “Padrino of Corruption and Embezzlement” into four more years in opposition.
The actor together with some costars including Bismark the Joke, Bibi Bright, Kalybos, General Ntetia, Cwesi Oteng has publicly endorsed the New Patriotic Party ahead of the general elections.
The group of actors also went on the stress to campaign for the NPP parliamentary candidate for the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency, Lydia Alhassan who is standing against their fellow actor, John Mahama.
Although celebrities continue to indulge in politics, it is evident some members of government do not see them beyond being on the screens and entertaining fans.
The Minister Of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration had taken a swipe at celebrities, calling them unserious. She said:
“Parliament is a very serious business, it’s a serious place. The place is not for those who think they can heal the sick. No! No! No! No! No! Do not let that happen. It is a serious place,” she said.
“If you mistakenly vote for John Dumelo instead of Lydia Alhassan, you’ll always be watching movies at the movie theatre,” Ayorkor Botchwey added.
