Social Media: Celebrities on Akuffo-Addo’s win
Ghanaian celebrities have been busy on social media commenting on the just ended elections.
Many of them have congratulated president-elect Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo on his victory.
Popular journalist and TV personality, Gifty Anti, who was among the early pack that congratulated the president-elect, called Nana Akufo-Addo’s victory a display of God’s faithfulness.
The Stand Point hostess further intimated that the president elect’s victory in the polls was a lesson to all that “God has the final say in everything”, hence one should never give up in pursuit of their dreams.
Actress and Producer, Yvonne Nelson said wrote “For those of you pretending on social media….we SEE you….funny how everything changes in hours! My PRESIDENT, Ghana needs you…..and we believe in you ❤️CONGRATULATIONS”
Award-winning actress and television presenter, Ama Abebrese, also said goodbye to the president of the Republic of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama on her twitter handle.
She wrote “Well….. bye bye ooo. You are still a cutie, you served us well and we will always remember you, but it looks like Ghana ???????? is breaking up with you. She has a new man and he 72 years old. Apparently age ain’t nothing but a number.”
After Nana Addo was declared winner of the elections, film director Leila Danzi took to Twitter to share her excitement about the change in government.
Actor, John Dumelo, who was a known NDC sympathiser and was seen on campaign platforms also posted on Facebook “When the sun comes up in the morning, it changes the Colour of the sky….
To our president elect Nana Akuffo Addo, Ghanaians have spoken and it’s you they want. Ghana is already on the path of great economic transformation: please don’t let those who voted for you down. Don’t let Ghana down and don’t let Africa down. Congratulations Sir.”
During the 2016 election campaign, Hiplife artiste Mzbel publicly endorsed President Mahama and the NDC and even composed a campaign song entitled ‘JM Toaso’. The odds however did not favor her candidate as he lost to main opposition leader, Nana Akuffo-Addo.
After the sitting president conceded to defeat, she posted “I wish to congratulate my father, mentor and hero, H.E John Dramani Mahama for his enormous courage to peacefully concede defeat in the elections.”
