Popular Ghanaian comedian and YouTuber Teacher Kwadwo has openly declared his support for John Dramani Mahama, the flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Teacher Kwadwo posted a photo of himself on his Instagram page wearing an NDC party branded T-shirt with the inscription ‘John Mahama 2020’.
He also gave an infectious smile and held his balls in the photo Kasatintin.com has sighted online.
Teacher Kwadwo has a huge following on YouTube and Instagram. He is loved for his unique and irresistible comedy skits.
With just a few days to elections, it is predicted that the comedian’s latest endorsement will likely influence the decision of his fans to vote massively for John Mahama and the NDC in the December 7 polls.
It is not clear if Teacher Kwadwo endorsed Mahama on commercial terms or he simply did so based on his strong admiration for the NDC leader.
In many parts of the world, celebrities are given a breathing space to campaign for a political party of their choice during critical elections. But it is literally a taboo to do same in Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah’s Ghana.
Some social media users have threatened to unfollow Teacher Kwadwo for actively engaging himself in politics, and particularly for his subtle endorsement of Mahama.
One social media user, Lilnybis is urging Teacher Kwadwo’s fans to keep their cool. Commenting on the the entertainer’s post, she said ‘Mind games, he will soon post a picture of him in NPP attire’
Nana_Yaasebo also reacted to the post saying ‘You’ve just lost one follower for engaging in politics’.
‘Teacher Kwadwo u take urself enter politics ur comedy career go collapse o’.
