Barely 24 hours after Edem tweeted that he wants to moderate the much-talked about presidential debate between Dancehall artiste, Samini, and movie actor, John Dumelo, the celebrated Ghanaian actor has accepted the challenge to debate the artiste.
John commented on Edem’s post on instagram saying he is ready for the debate.
Edem, via social media networking site Twitter, wrote, “I will be the moderator for @Samini_Dagaati and @JohnDumelo1 debate… Interesting times for Freedom of Speech and Association.”Samini, during his media tour to promote his #BreakingNews album, threw a challenge to John Dumelo to join him in a Presidential Debate (since he – John Dumelo – has been headlining political news lately).
Samini has already expressed interest in contesting for President in 2028.
Edem stepping in with this tweet gives the entire drama a new twist.
About a month ago Edem dropped a controversial single “Nana Éba” which many still feel was eulogizing Nana Akufo Addo of the NPP but Edem came out to deny any direct engagements with the NPP flag bearer. He says the song wasn’t linked to him and he didn’t mention Nana Akufo Addo’s name in the song.
John Dumelo has also been in the news for allegedly rubbing shoulders with the flag-bearers of the NPP and NDC.
Meanwhile, Samini has maintained a neutral position and hasn’t openly declared his support or affiliation with any of the Ghana political parties.
