Pretty sure you heard about or read about multiple award winning Ghanaian dancehall artist Samini’s open invitation to actor John Dumelo to engage in a presidential debate.
Well, there is a new twist to the entire political drama among the celebrities as Edem steps in.
Ace Ghanaian Rapper Edem says he would love to be the moderator for Samini and John Dumelo proposed presidential debate.
Edem disclosed this via social media networking site Twitter as he wrote “I will be the moderator for @Samini_Dagaati and @JohnDumelo1 debate… Interesting times for Freedom of Speech and Association.”
Samini during his media tour to promote his #BreakingNews album threw a challenge to John Dumelo to join him in a Presidential Debate (since he – John Dumelo – has been headlining political news lately).
Samini has already expressed interest in contesting for President in 2028.
Edem stepping in with this tweet gives the entire drama a new twist.
About a month ago Edem dropped a controversial single “Nana Éba” which many still feel was eulogizing Nana Akufo Addo of the NPP but Edem came out to deny any direct engagements with the NPP flag bearer. He says the song wasn’t linked to him and he didn’t mention Nana Akufo Addo’s name in the song.
John Dumelo has also been in the news for allegedly rubbing shoulders with the flag-bearers of the NPP and NDC.
Meanwhile, Samini has maintained a neutral position and hasn’t openly declared his support or affiliation with any of the Ghana political parties.
Are these 3 celebrities serious about this or its just for the fun of it?
Well, let’s see how it goes for Edem moderating that debate between the HighGradeFamily Boss, Samini and renowned actor, John Dumelo.
