Medikal has capitalized on the current political climate in the nation, leveraging the recent New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) presidential primaries as a platform to make a significant declaration.
The acclaimed Ghanaian rapper took to Twitter to unveil his aspirations for the presidency, a future endeavour he envisions.
Drawing inspiration from Nana Akufo Addo’s infamous promise of one district, one factory, which failed to materialize, Medikal boldly asserts that if given the opportunity to govern Ghana, he will ensure that every household in the country has access to a swimming pool.
Undoubtedly, his statement is lighthearted and not to be taken seriously; wouldn’t you agree?
Interestingly, Medikal, who is known in some circles as one of the richest Ghanaian artistes, recently suggested he is not as rich as he portrays himself on social media.
During a live Twitter Spaces with Cookie Tee, the rapper and songwriter clarified that the lavish lifestyle he portrays on social media is merely a marketing tactic to enhance his brand.
When questioned about the money, cars, and houses he showcases on his social media platforms, the “Too Risky” hitmaker explained that these are simply props and should not be taken at face value.
Drawing parallels to popular Hollywood movies, he emphasized that he has never claimed ownership of any items displayed on social media that he does not actually possess. He acknowledged that his fans are aware of this fact as well.
“It’s all props, it’s like the Rambo movie, you see him with guns, shooting and killing, but in real life, he’s in The Bahamas chilling, that’s how it is. So what you see on social media is an illusion. It’s just my brand. I don’t have anything. My fans know that whatever I don’t own, I won’t claim as my own. I’m not rich, I’m trying to survive, I’m a hustler just like everyone else,” he disclosed.
