Multiple award-winning rapper Sarkodie has wittily remarked that his ‘Happy Day’ featuring Kuami Eugene is not an endorsement for President Akufo-Addo and the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Via Twitter, Sarkodie stated that the song, though some of the lyrics extolled the President, is not an endorsement.
He, therefore, told President Akufo-Addo not to capitalise on the messages of the song to propagate any campaign message.
“Nana M3nfa bronya ho nwe akoko oo lool!! when I say aban (all parties) Shouts to yourself x JM but if I feel like pointing out the negatives too you know how we do #HappyDay”, Sarkodie tweeted a reply to President Akufo-Addo’s initial tweet.
The New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer tweeted: “Nice song @sarkodie and @KuamiEugene. Indeed, the battle is still the Lord’s.#4MoreForNana”
Sarkodie, in some lyrics of the song, endorsed President Akufo-Addo, while commending him for implementing the Free SHS policy.
Sarkodie also suggested that President Akufo-Addo is given another four-year mandate because erratic power supply, popularly known as Dumsor, which was widely experienced in the past, has been addressed.
The ‘Adonai’ hitmaker stated that since he had pointed out pressing issues like inflation and Dumsor in his songs in 2015 titled ‘The Masses’ and ‘Dumsor’, respectively, it is appropriate to give praise where it is due.
Sarkodie also mentioned President Akufo-Addo and the NPP’s popular campaign catchphrase, “The battle is the Lord’s” in the outro of the song.
The ‘Happy Day’ video was directed by Prince Dovlo, with sound production credits to MOG Beats.
