Gospel musician Reverend Lenny Akpadie has cautioned Ghanaian musicians to stop involving themselves in politics especially during election years.
According to him, even though it may look lucrative at the time, it goes along to affect these musicians negatively in the future.
Recounting his experience with the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in December, 2008, Rev. Akpadie said that selling his hit song “Most High” to the NDC, was a big mistake that he regrets.
“I gave my song to NDC for a year and they gave me GHC 7,500 even though I never performed at any of the NDC’s functions. The party wanted me to take to their platforms but I refused. I can say for sure that musicians who are in the limelight and associate themselves with political parties will suffer for it,” he said.
Rev Lenny Akpadie also added that he was tagged as NDC during the process which went along to affect most of his business deals. His marriage almost collapsed as well.
