It is very common these days to find actors and musicians trying to ride their fame into politics, take Dumelo for example or Nigeria’s Desmond Elliot who has succeeded or better still popular Nollywood actor Yul Edochie who is looking to be voted in the next Nigerian Presidential elections. Ghanaian rapper Manifest, born into a family of great political and law background has however revealed that he does not nurse such aspirations.
Manifest born Kwame Ametepee Tsikata needs no introduction if you are a Ghanaian as his name Tsikata suggest, he is the son renowned Ghanaian lawyer and a leading member of the largest opposition party in the country, the National Democratic Congress, Mr. Tsatsu Tsikata.
Talking about music and the possibility of diverting into politics to maker a bigger impact in the lives of the people, the ace rapper acknowledged his desire in learning and doing new things all the time but unfortunately politics and leadership is not something he fancies or sees himself going into.
“The person I am, my curiosity about the world, I am definitely interested in stuff that goes on but I do not see myself running for office, no”. The rapper made these utterances in an interview on Citi TV monitored by Ghanajoint, when he was asked if he would ever follow in his father’s footsteps and one day veer into politics.
