Election 2024: I’ll snatch Gomoa Central seat from NPP, says A Plus

The Gomoa Central seat in the Central Region is currently being occupied by deputy Interior Minister Naana Eyiah  on the ticket of the NPP

Ghanaian hiplife singer and political activist Kwame Asare Obeng, also known as A Plus, has declared his intention to contest for the Gomoa Central parliamentary seat as an independent candidate.

A Plus said the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) have failed to bring development to the area.

The Gomoa Central seat in the Central Region is currently being occupied by deputy Interior Minister Naana Eyiah  on the ticket of the NPP.

Speaking to the media on the sidelines of a burial service for his late father, over the weekend, A Plus said he will beat any person who contests the seat in 2024.

“I am going to contest Gomoa Central as an Independent candidate,” the firebrand said. “I’m not contesting on any party’s ticket. I am a non-conformist, I don’t see myself agreeing with what NDC and NPP have done over the years. I don’t see them changing, I don’t think they will ever change.”

“I am somebody who is independent minded. I want to have the freedom to say what I want to say and do what I want to do, so I am contesting as an independent candidate,” he added.

“I am going to parliament as a representative of the people of Ghana, not as a representative of a particular political party, that is why I am contesting as an independent candidate.

“I will win, President Akufo-Addo can come and contest, I will beat him, I will beat anybody who comes here,” A Plus said.

About A Plus

Kwame Asare Obeng (A Plus) is a hiplife artist with a keen interest in politics and social issues. He first made a name for himself singing about events leading to and after Ghana’s 2000 general elections.

He released his album, “Freedom of Speech” during the 2000 elections. The track Mesuro Mpo Na Merekeka Yi O (literally meaning I am afraid of what I am saying but I will say it anyway) basically lambasted politicians. His witty and fairly accurate narration of political issues made the song an immediate hit.

In 2001, he followed up with “Freedom of Speech II” which warned the new government to do better or risk losing power in 2004. After the 2004 general elections, he hit back with the single, Agye Gon – analyzing the 2004 campaign process.

In 2007 he changed his approach, this time he specifically talked about Ghana’s Parliament in his somewhat poignant, “Letter to Parliament”. Letter to Parliament won him a nomination for Best Hip-life Song at the 2008 edition of the Ghana Music Awards.

In between his releases, A Plus has also tried his hands on stand-up comedy with relative success. He has carved a niche for himself as the witty politically incorrect artist but in his latest single, “A Letter to the West” featuring Praye; he makes a complete u-turn to spit conscious and politically correct lyrics about Africa’s bane of poor leadership.

He talks about wars and poverty in Africa resulting from stinking political leadership. Other popular songs of his are Agye gon, Two paddies, Zilo, Mansa, Asem kese, Igwe, among others.
