Tension is beginning to mount between some Ghanaian entertainers and the NPP’s Ashanti Regional chairman Bernard Antwi-Boasiako ahead of the November 7 polls.
The gradual ‘civil war’ started after Bernard Antwi-Boasiako warned artistes against openly campaigning for President John Dramani Mahama in Kumasi.
Wontumi vowed on NEAT FM’s morning show ‘Ghana Montie’ that he will personally lead a crusade to sabotage any entertainer who will campaign for the President in the upcoming elections. http://ghanapoliticsonline.com
But he has been dared by actor Clement Bonney also known as Mr. Beautiful to “go to hell” with his “empty threats”.
The Kumasi-based actor has promised to rally some of his fellow screen actors to openly campaign for the re-election of President Mahama in the upcoming November 7 polls just as he did four years ago.http://ghanapoliticsonline.com
Despite publications that is he scared for his life for the threats made against celebrities who plan to hit the President’s campaign trail – Mr Beautiful rather called the bluff of Chairman Wontumi as the NPP Ashanti Regional Chair is affectionately called.
Speaking on NEAT FM, Mr. Beautiful tagged Wontumi as “childish” and “mad” whose involvement in politics is unfortunate.
“I am sad for that little boy called Wontumi. No sound minded person will behave like the way he behaves. He is not a qualified politician. No wonder he is in the NPP…”
“It’s shameful for the Ashanti region to have someone like him as a chairman. I am not a politician but more knowledgeable than Wontumi in politics. He is a disgrace,” he told host Kwasi Aboagye.
