Controversial political hit maker, Barima Sydney has done it again.
He has released a song with an accompanying video, in which President John Dramani Mahama is heard singing a chorus.
In the yet-to- be released video in particular, Sidney is seen sitting next to President Mahama inside the Flagstaff House delivering a message from the citizenry to the president, who were listening attentively.
The Herald is informed that Barima Sidney will this week be releasing both the controversial video and the audio entitled “Donkomi” to TV and radio stations.
It is unclear what his motivation is and which points he is seeking to score.
Sidney in the animated video, produced by Eagle Site Production and directed by McLord Ice, is also seen questioning President Mahama over the Ghana Youth Employment and Entrepreneurial Development Agency (GYEEDA) report.
He is also seen in the video, questioning President Mahama, on the criminal sale of Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) drillship, Discoverer 511 by the administration of ex-President, John Agyekum Kufuor, as well as, the sale of Merchant Bank to Fortis, which is attracting lots of headlines
in recent times.
The President, was seen in the video rapping and telling Ghanaians to keep faith with his administration, and went on to say when driving a car, one had to gradually change gears before arriving at his or her final destination, and so he is on course and will deliver his promise of a “Better Ghana”.
Barima Sydney is known for his controversial political songs over the years. He made “Apuskeleke” and African Money which became instant hits songs in the country during the Kufuor era. “Apuskeleke” was even discussed in classrooms and also became a subject for Parliamentary debate.
The music took on the Mahama-Amissah-Authur led administration, for virtually increasing almost everything from condoms to electricity bills, water bills, whilst salaries are still low.
“Mr. President wu bo Ghana Donkomi ‘literally meaning, President John Dramani Mahama you are putting Ghana up for sale.
The opening of the song say “If you no fit the kitchen heat get out so, they tell us..Our politicians. Agoo I dey knock ooo beg oo open small..Ebe me u no dey kai me Barima Sydney.. Everywhere you pass Mhama aa… our priorities now is to create loot and share”.
The yet to be released hit song, had Barima Sydney introducing himself as the voice of the voiceless. This was after he had walked through the main gate of the Flagstaff House amid protest from the security guards there.
He is heard on the saying, if you are a corrupt Member of Parliament (MP), a corrupt teacher. A corrupt presenter ‘me bo wu donkomi ‘.
More To Come!
