Ghanaian controversial hiplife musician, Belinda Nana Ekua Amoah, popularly known as Mzbel is questioning the barrage of attacks leveled against religious people, chiefs and celebrities who openly endorse the National Democratic Congress (NDC) or John Dramani Mahama.
According to Mzbel, any individual who endorses the president is openly harassed but interestingly, when other groups of people make open declaration for the presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), nobody attacks them a practice which she says is unhealthy for our democracy.
The hiplife artiste, who recently endorsed the president by releasing two campaign songs for the NDC and President Mahama ahead of the upcoming election made the observation in a Facebook post.
“Any person who says anything positive about John Mahama or about the NDC is promptly set upon with insults: religious people, chiefs, celebrities have all been harassed for expressing their support for the NDC administration.
“And yet there are chiefs and celebrities who have expressed support for the presidential candidate of the NPP and nobody has insulted them for that.
“This cannot be healthy for our democracy. A mark of competence and good leadership is to unify your followers behind you and that is not the case in that party today. I know this comments I’ve made will elicit a barrage of insults…”
