Popular Ghanaian musician Dada Kwakye Duah, popularly known as Dada KD, has alleged that his colleagues squandered the campaign funds given to them by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) without giving him a dime during the 2020 general elections in Ghana.

Dada KD in an interview with Captain Smart on Onua TV, recounted how his efforts to support the NPP and President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo through a street musical concert were overshadowed by his colleagues.

The musician explained that during the electioneering campaign, he devised a strategy involving music and concerts to bolster support for President Akufo-Addo.

He added that to took along actor Agya Koo and an individual named Pasco to present this idea to President Akufo-Addo, who approved the initiative and provided funds.

“I met two people and went to see the president with them to make a plea. Agya Koo and Pasco were the ones I accompanied.

“We proposed a campaign strategy involving music and concerts to support Akufo-Addo during the 2024 elections,” he said.

However, Dada KD revealed that he felt mistreated when the funds were released.

“Akufo-Addo responded to our request by providing funds and other resources. They allocated two billion Ghana Cedis for purchasing instruments and a car for the street campaign,” he noted.

Dada KD expressed his disappointment with his colleagues, feeling betrayed by their actions, while that despite being the originator of the campaign strategy, he did not receive any share of the resources allocated for the initiative.

“In the end, Agya Koo took GH¢40,000 worth of instruments for himself, Pasco took the Tundra, and I received nothing, despite being the one who introduced the idea,” he stated.

Meanwhile, Agya Koo has denied enriching himself with NPP campaign funds.

According to him, his decision to campaign for the NPP stems from his love for the party and belief in its values.

He clarified that there is no iota of truth in claims that the NPP has helped him to survive financially following the near-collapse state of the Kumawood movie industry.
