I regret endorsing Nana Akufo-Addo in 2016 – Cwesi Oteng

Ghanaian gospel musician Cwesi Oteng has revealed how he regrets his decision to endorse President Akufo-Addo and the NPP prior to the 2016 elections.

In an interview with KOD on ‘The Zone’ on Starr 103.5FM, the ‘I Win’ hitmaker revealed how he got negative reactions from people after he openly endorsed then-candidate Akufo-Addo.

When questioned on what influenced his decision to endorse Akufo-Addo, he replied: “It’s one of the decisions that I sometimes regret making because I realized people hate you for no reason. That’s the reason I regretted, not because I endorsed him. People frown for no reason and I thought per my knowledge and understanding of the Ghanaian, I felt that I had an independent human right to make a choice.”

“Any government that takes over a sitting government, you look at the presidency of John Mahama, it was an amazing presidency, I don’t care what anybody thinks. Look at the stuff he did. Ghana doesn’t have any siting money to do those things, he has to borrow money to do them. Any person who takes up a government like that is not going to find it easy. Because there’s a lot of pressure.”

On whether he will still go Team Nana Addo come 2020, he said: “perhaps I should also understand that I’m in Ghana, and maybe the people frown for u to have independence. I’m not angry for who you vote for so don’t be angry with me.”

Cwesi Oteng is set to release a new album titled “Anthems” Friday.
