President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has reacted to the endorsement of his second term bid by Sarkodie and Samini ahead of the 2020 elections on December 7.
Sarkodie and Samini came public on Monday, November 2, 2020, to endorse Akufo-Addo and his New Patriotic Party (NPP) for a second term in office.
Samini was the first to announce his support for Akufo-Addo by taking to social media to post his endorsement message on Monday, November 2, 2020.

Not long after, rapper Sarkodie also released a new song titled Happy Day which features Kuami Eugene.
That part of the song has since gone viral as it comes off as his support for the re-election of the incumbent President. The song which features Kuami Eugene has as well caught the attention of the President who decided to show appreciation to the musicians.
A tweet from the President’s Twitter account in reply to Sarkodie posting a link of the song on Twitter, reads “Nice song @sarkodie and @KuamiEugene. Indeed, the battle is still the Lord’s. #4MoreForNana“.
Reacting to Nana Addo’s tweet, Sarkodie dropped an adage in Twi which that when translated to English it could also mean that ‘the President shouldn’t seize the moment to fetch too many political points from the song’.
He went on to give shout outs to the John Mahama as well and added that “but if I feel like pointing out the negatives too you know how we do“. His tweet has since attracted a myriad of comments from tweeps who claim Sarkodie wants to distance himself from the political inclinations being derived from the song.
