Mr. Beautiful, IClement Bonney, has claimed that Kalybos, Agya Koo, and other Ghanaian actors who campaigned for the NPP administration in the 2016 and 2020 elections should cover their faces in shame for voting for the wrong political party.
In an interview with Zionfelix, the Kumawood actor stated that many of his colleagues envied him when he decided to campaign for John Mahama and the NDC government, something he has not regretted because he profited from it.
Some of the benefits he enjoyed according to Mr. Beautiful included good schools, hospitals, and other state infrastructures, hence Agya Koo and his colleagues should name one good thing they have derived from following Akufo- Addo and his government.
“If I were Agya Koo, Kalybos, Matilda Asare, and others, I would cover my face with a veil because I am embarrassed.” Do you understand why? When I backed John Dramani Mahama, we got a new airport, a new seaport, roads, schools, many hospitals, and so many other things. But they should tell me one thing Akufo-Addo has done since he was elected president. “That is why, if I were them, I would be walking in shame through the streets of the state,” he remarked.
During the engagement, the actor stated that he was the pioneer of such activity, and that as a result, other performers developed an interest in publicly supporting a political party.
He added that the reason why he decided to campaign for Mahama was not about the money but was because he saw something good in the NDC flagbearer.
“I came up with that not knowing they all wanted to be a part of it but they were afraid to show their faces. But it came out in 2012, openingly, because I saw something great in the president. When I did it, it gave them the urge, and Aga Koo and his other colleagues campaigned for Nana Addo in the 2016 election. I went through a lot and you are aware of it”, he stated.
