Kofi Kinaata explains why he won’t accept $1million deal to campaign for a political party

Renowned Ghanaian artiste Kofi Kinaata has stated that he would decline any offer including a lucrative $1 million to endorse a political party in the upcoming general elections.

Explaining the rationale behind his decision, Kinaata said he wants to avoid the hostility from Ghanaians towards artiste who align with political parties and rather remain neutral.

In a recent interview on Nhyira FM, Kofi Kinaata, the acclaimed singer of “Things Fall Apart”, revealed that he has no interest in creating a campaign song for any political party, however, he is open to performing at political events if formally invited and contracted.

His sole focus, he said it to provide entertainment and not political endorsement.

Kinaata hesitated when the host asked if a $1 million offer would sway him to reconsider his stance.

He expressed his concern about the potential backlash from the public which could negatively impact his career.

“It is actually not bad, but now Ghanaians do not understand. They need to understand that the stage that is being used for rallies was constructed by carpenters, electricians and even DJs who play at the rallies perform their duties not because they are necessarily party members but because they are doing their work.

“But it is always a different case if a musician decides to entertain his fans, they start stigmatizing us.

“Perhaps, if the stigmatisation stops, we can make songs for political parties. Also, political tensions are high so it’s better to stay neutral. God should select a winner and after the elections, we will all come together to support the person,” he said.
