Creatives campaigning for political parties disappointing – Ashis

Published

on

Renowned Ghanaian artiste manager and entertainment Pundit, Nana Poku Ashis has expressed worry over the increasing involvement of Ghanaian creatives in political campaigns.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Graphic Showbiz, Ashis advised creatives to be mindful of mounting campaign platforms of politicians who only take advantage of them to get into office.

He detailed that with the general election coming off  in the last of the year, politicians will once again use and dump the creatives. They will ride on creatives’ popularity and numbers for their campaigns but do not have their welfare at heart.

In the words of the manager, “It is about time players in the Creative Industry come together as one voice to fight for a common goal because politicians have taken them for granted for far too long .We are only needed during campaign time so they can come to power and after that, we are left on our own.

” I have told myself that until a presidential candidate can convince me that he has our interest at heart and is willing to implement policies that help creatives, there is no way I am voting. I believe if every creative thinks like me, they will take us seriously and provide us with what we need to effectively execute our jobs,” he said.

He further added  that, “With how we have been treated so far, I don’t expect to see any creative jumping on any political platform to campaign for a politician until our voices are heard. In December, we will be voting, and we will be needed for campaigns, and this is the time we should make our voices heard. Let’s come together as one and fight for a common goal.

The showbiz mogul further averred that the creative sector played a crucial role in the country’s development, contributing to economic growth, job creation and government tax revenue. He argued that creatives engaging in political campaigns risk becoming mere mouthpieces, overshadowing their ability to contribute meaningfully to social discourse.
