Socrate Sarfo, Director for Creative Arts at the National Commission on Culture in Ghana has debunked claims by some section of the public that Samini was paid to produce music and endorse the candidature of the President of Ghana Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
There were reports which were corroborated by Member of Parliament for Prampram Sam George suggesting that Samini was GHC 500,000 to produce a song for Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s bid for a second term.
But speaking on a yet-to-be-released interview on Accra-based GhOne TV, Socrate Sarfo said the NPP does not pay celebrities for endorsement.
According to him, contrary to reports in sections of the media, Samini was not paid a dime to endorse the President for his second bid.
“NPP don’t pay artistes to do things for them For the records Samini has not been paid any dime to do whatever.”
