The political season is here and musicians just can’t resist the political temptations. Popular Hiplife group MFRAMA released their new song for NPP President Candidate Nana Akuffo Addo this afternoon.
Titled “The Sack Letter”, the song praises the NPP flagbearer, Nana Akuffo Addo, and ridicules his opponent, President John Evans Atta-Mills of the NDC party, in the upcoming December 2012 election.
The question entertainment critics are asking though is, is it worth the risk? While the song aims to show the creative free flowing side of the artistes, it is also meant to please the NPP fans of the Hiplife group thus is always the possibility that member’s of NDC political party might take offense to it.
Most artistes and celebrities in the industry do not like to state their political affiliations after all because it can affect their business connections, when the political party they support is not in power. It would be interesting to know how much the group was paid for this work.
They have been numb on whether they were contracted to do this song being the very first song by any artiste for a political party running up to the December elections.
Is it for the money or just a genuine show of solidarity with ideals they believe in? Time will tell.
MFRAMA’s music career began in the year 2006 with the release of the track ‘Feelin Gadoochi’ which featured Kwabena Kwabena. Since them the group has gone on to create other hits such as ‘Robbing Peter to pay Paul’ and ‘Ghana Lady’ which was featured on the Appietus compilation. Their song ‘Agya Koo Gbengbentus’ also won Best Original Song at the Ghana Movie Awards.
