We have reliably been informed by an undisclosed source inside The New Patriotic Party(NPP)’s campaign team that the team is negotiating with ace rapper Okyeame Kwame, to release a song for Nana Akuffo Addo ahead the 2012 general election.
The Nana Akuffo Addo campaign team is said to have approached the ‘versatile’ rapper with GH10,000 to make a ‘matured’ music for them following his successful audience among both the older and younger generation with his ‘sika’ song.
According to the source,they were pushed to choose Okyeame Kwame because at the moment,he is one of the few musicians who can blend ideally with both the younger and older generation and still come out with much love from them.
However,the deal is yet to be sealed since Okyeame Kwame is demanding something around the said GH10,000 and a Toyota Prado.It is still a matter of bargaining with him but we hope it works out for the good of our campaign,the undisclosed source said.
Even so,Okyeame Kwame,who is an Ashanti and hails from Nsuta,has reiterated his desire to make the music for the NPP claiming it is his occupation and has nothing to do with his personal preference or affiliation.
We cannot confirm how acceptable a political party affiliation is going to fare for the spokesperson of MUSIGA but we are reliably informed that inasmuch as it is going to affect the public’s view on the his work,the union has no problem with it.
Last year,Lumba’s song was one in a million and was accepted by almost everyone but the party is bent on having a different artiste to make another campaign song for them.
