Musician Kofi Kinaata says Ghanaians political allegiance trumps national welfare


Music sensation Kofi Kinaata recently expressed his worry about the prevailing mindset in Ghanaian politics. He believes that many Ghanaians prioritize their allegiance to political parties over the well-being of the nation itself. Kinaata, known for hits like “Confessions,” spoke out against the current state of affairs, where people hesitate to voice their concerns for fear of backlash and being unfairly labeled based on their political leanings.

In a statement quoted by Graphic Online, Kinaata emphasized the lack of tangible change despite years of promises from politicians. He expressed a sense of disillusionment, stating, “Over the years, we have been sweet-talked to by politicians in this country, but nothing happens, and there is no change. For me, I’ve given up.”

Kinaata elaborated on the challenges posed by entrenched partisan divisions, explaining how it hinders efforts to address pressing issues. He highlighted the reluctance of individuals to speak out if their opinions clash with the interests of their chosen political party. This, he believes, leads to a situation where loyalty to one’s party takes precedence over the greater good of the nation, resulting in chaos and stagnation.

The musician’s comments shed light on a troubling trend where excessive party loyalty stifles meaningful discussions and prevents effective problem-solving. Instead of engaging in constructive dialogue, people often find themselves caught up in defending their party affiliations, regardless of the consequences for the country.

Despite being approached by various political figures, including members of the Movement for Change, Kinaata made it clear that he has no plans to venture into politics. He remains committed to using his platform as an artist to raise awareness about social issues and advocate for positive change in Ghanaian society.
