Debate over Popularity of Agya Koo and Dumelo Rages on
The debate over who among the two celebrities both of whom have endorsed opposing presidential candidates of the country’s two largest political parties [NPP, NDC] ahead of the December 7 polls rages on.
John Dumelo has openly declared his support for the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) indicating it has very good policies and programmes to help better the lives of Ghanaians.
Kofi Adu aka Agya Koo thinks otherwise and therefore has rooted for the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP). And has even declared a whooping 57% win for Nana Addo.
Agya is of the view that the government has performed so abysmally and is a bitter pill for the masses blaming it for not regularly being featured in movies in the last 5 years in view of the crippling creative arts industry.
Subsequently, he is leading a campaign agenda of 57% win for flagbearer of the NPP, Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo.
Several radio commentators as well as party faithfuls have expressed different opinion as to which of the two is more popular.
DJ Roar of a Kumasi-based station Kessben stated that the veteran Kumawood star Agya Koo is popular than his fellow actor, John Dumelo.
Reacting to comments by National Organizer of the NDC Kofi Adams over his claims he does not know who Agya Koo is, DJ Roar expressed shock and called on Mr Adams to critically examine the two.
Well, if you ask me , both are equally popular and at par with each other if we are to give percentages.
See,it is very clear the differences both bring into the fray. Agya Koo undoubtedly will appeal to the masses,especially those in the rural areas.John Dumelo on the other hand will also appeal to the elite and especially those on the social media. He is the most followed celebrity in Ghana on the internet.
But as to whether that will make an impact on their fans to follow them to their respective parties is yet to be seen.
