Ghanaian rapper Denning Edem Hotor popularly known as Edem, has explained why he first shared a poster of himself in the colors and logo of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and later did the same with the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Updating Ghainaans on what he did, he wondered whether the media verifies what is put on the official social media handles of personalities or institutions before making news items out of it.
“Are Ghanaians tolerant of divergent views in Politics,and do media houses verify facts on information gotten before making it news ? Are people excited to see more young people take up Political Positions?
“How do individuals of different political parties react towards each other?
Do people’s political views influence their attitudes, behaviors, and decision-making? Do intolerance, bias, and prejudice affect individuals and their interactions with others who have different political views?
“FUN OPINION ‼️ Followers of both Parties should use the same energy to support creatives on social media and Both Parties are invited to #Edemfest23 🕺 I need same energy for my upcoming songs 😊 Those wey unfollow me on party line, Abeg Follow back 😀 I LOVE YOU ALL.”
On Tuesday, March 21, he told Ghanaians to expect ‘a big’ political announcement from him.
