Gospel musician Jak Alolome has refuted reports that he declared his support for the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) during an event in Ellembelle.
The musician was reported to have endorsed NDC and its flag bearer, John Mahama when he climbed stage to perform during the National Democratic Congress’ Western region campaign taskforce launch Sunday.
The ‘God Will Make A Way’ singer on Radio Univers’ ‘Brucnh2Lunch’ entertainment show told Abrantepa, host of the mid-morning show that he was at the event to entertain the crowd but not to campaign for the party as reported.
According to him, he is a musician who is willing to perform for any political party but not ready to endorse a party and its flag bearer ahead of this year’s polls.
He disclosed that he joined NPP months ago when they were in Kumasi to raise funds.
“I’m not with NDC. I’m a musician so they invited me for their show. Minister of Gas and Petroleum, Armah-Kofi Buah is my brother so he invited me to come perform at his campaign launch.
I even reached there late. He had finished talking when I got there so they asked me to do something quick before Vice President gives the final speech.
Nobody raised my hand up neither did I raise anyone’s hand up to tell the crowd we are walking together. I just went to sing my song.
I was with NPP some months ago in Kumasi when they were raising funds. I composed a song for them during the event which made some of their party executives approach me requesting that I record the song for them but I told them I can’t do it due to the nature of my job.
If you invite me I will come so since I’m on NDC platform, I’ve to do something which will make them happy.” Jak Alolome told Abrantepa.
