Kwadwo Nkansah, popularly known as Lilwin has revealed plans to contest the Afigya Kwabre South Seat as an Independent candidate.
Several notable people, he claims, have approached him and encouraged him to run for MP in the Afigya Kwabre South constituency.
On August 23, 2023, he made this announcement during an interview with Kwame Nkrumah Tikese on Okay FM.
Lilwin went on to say that local officials had voiced their desire for him to run for government, and their reasoning was based on his large fan base.
“Last year, around October, I found myself in a situation where a number of elders approached me. According to them, they had already convened to discuss the possibility of me becoming their MP, but as an independent candidate. They assured me of their commitment to ensure my victory in the election.
“More recently, their concern was intensified due to my latest movie, ‘Mr. President.’ They came for a copy of the movie and after watching it, they came and informed me that no matter what they have spoken with my mother, my uncle Wofa Atta and a lot of my family members that, I have to become an MP,” he said.
This comes a few days ago after former president John Dramani Mahama advised Lilwin not to go into politics.
