Former President, John Dramani Mahama in his quest for a second term as President of the Republic of Ghana started off his campaign even though the race for the flagbearership for the National Democratic Congress is yet to come off.
John Dramani Mahama, during the National Delegates Congress, held at the Trade Fair, La, Accra, some nice 2020 Mahama campaign song were rocking in the Dome and it is sure to get other presidential aspirants complaining. Well, inside the Fantasy Dome, it was all dancing.
The song which is a refix of Gospel artiste, Evangelist IK Aning’s hit song ‘Borborleborbor’ throws a direct jab at His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo and his party, NPP for mismanaging the country’s economy and the free SHS brouhaha was played throughout the whole night when counting of votes were underway.
Meanwhile, singer of the popular gospel song “bobolebobo”, which has been refixed as a campaign song for Mahama, Evangelist IK Aning, has called on Mahama asking him to compensate him for adopting his beat and words in the making of the Mahama version of the song.

According to the Evangelist, he was not consulted in the making of the Mahama version of the song and that the singer violated the copyright laws, hence the need to pay him some royalty.
“I have spent money on the song, so if you want the song, you should have informed me for us to sit and share the cost before you go ahead with your version.”
“My beat and words were adopted for the Mahama version, and the artiste who did that will surely be paid, so he needs to also give me something that I can use to produce another song” he said in an interview with Akwasi Nsiah on Kasapa FM.
“I will plead with Mahama to compensate me, I won’t use force but even the platform on which the song was played is huge and it has hyped the song. He has really helped me because now people will start looking for the original song to play”, he added.
