Ghanaian singer and songwriter King Promise has admonished the re-elected New Patriotic Party (NPP) government to make the people its topmost priority in its second term.
According to the ‘Sisa’ hitmaker, after winning the just-ended 2020 general elections, the government’s core mandate should be focusing on fulfilling campaign promises captured in their manifesto.
Speaking to Prince Benjamin on Class91.3FM’s Class Drive show on Friday, 11 December 2020, King Promise, known in real life as Gregory Bortey Promise Newman, said he expects President Nana Akufo-Addo-led to “just do what makes the people happy because anyone who serves the people, you’re basically here for the people, so, the needs and wants of the people are one thing you should pay extra attention to”.
“I don’t think it is just about me. This is a country of over 20 million people from rural areas to urban areas, there are so many needs and wants…” he added.
As the festive season approaches, King Promise advised his fans, followers and the general public to make merry while adhering strictly to COVID-19 safety protocols.
“Stay safe. Love your family, stay closer to everybody who means something to you. It’s been a crazy year. We’ve lost a lot of people… adhere to the Covid rules because it’s still around. Just enjoy yourself…” he noted.
King Promise is currently promoting his latest single, titled ‘Alright’ featuring Shatta Wale.
