Really? BNI to invite Barima Sydney over President Mahama video?

Published

barima sydneyThe Informer hints that the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) will likely, by close of this week, invite the controversial hitmaker, Barima Sydney and his Video Director, over the use of the President’s image and the Presidency in their latest video clip that is yet to be released onto the Ghanaian music market. The video, produced by Eagle Site Production and directed by Mc Lord Ice, had pictures of the President in the flagstaff House, being questioned by Barima Sydney on the controversial Ghana Youth Employment and Entrepreneurial Development Agency (GYEEDA) report, the criminal sale of Ghana National Petroleum Corporation’s (GNPC’s) Drill ship, Discoverer 511 by the administration of ex-President, John Agyekum Kufuor, as well as the recent sale of Merchant Bank to Fortiz, a deal many have questioned. The President was seen in the video rapping and telling Ghanaians to keep faith with his administration; to him, when driving a car, one had to gradually change gears before arriving at his or her final destination and so on course, and will deliver his promise of “Better Ghana”. The video is the latest song of the hitmaker Barima Sydney, who is known for his controversial political songs over the years. The “Apuskeleke” and African Money hitmaker, together with his Video Director, are likely to be hauled before the Greater Accra regional BNI to answer charges on the illicit use of the President’s image and the Flagstaff House, the seat of government, for commercial gains without prior permission. Information suggests that the BNI officials are not enthused about the use of the President’s image for commercial gains, as well as the mockery of the Presidency. A copy of the video intercepted by this paper at a production house in Osu, a suburb of Accra, had the hitmaker in his latest hit song dubbed “Donkomi”, seeing the President majestically dressed in splendid “Fugu” with Barima Sydney, sitting beside him at the Flagstaff House, asking him probing questions about what people are saying on the streets of Accra concerning the allegations of corruption under his watch. The video saw the President answering the questions posed by the controversial musician on the state of the economy and asking for more time as he is certain things will get well soon. The music took on the Mahama-Amissah-Authur-led administration for virtually increasing almost everything from condoms to electricity bills, water bills whilst salaries are still low. “Mr. President wu bo Ghana Donkomi; ‘to wit, ‘President John Dramani Mahama, you are putting Ghana up for sale’. The opening of the song says “If you no fit the kitchen heat get out, so they tell us …Our politicians. Agoo! I dey knock ooo, beg oo, open small..Ebe me u no dey kai me Barima Sydney.. Everywhere you pass Mahama aa… our priorities now is to create loot and share”. The yet-to-be-released hit song had Barima Sydney introducing himself as the voice of the voiceless. He is heard in the video saying, “if you are a corrupt Member of Parliament (MP), a corrupt teacher. A corrupt presenter ‘me bo wu donkomi'”. All attempts including several calls placed to the cellular phone of Barima Sydney as of press time yesterday proved futile.]]>
