Ghanaian spoken-word artist Poetra Asantewaa, unpacks the attitude of both politicians and the citizenry during elections in ‘Vote For Me’ featuring Akan.
“They campaign in good poetry and rule in bad pros”, she sets off into the powerful song, and details in startling accuracy how politicians mask their ineptitude with showmanship.
‘Vote for Me’ is both strong-worded and thought-provoking, and paints a disturbing picture of how we ourselves are vulnerable to fantastic promises by political aspirants.
The song fuses poetry, singing, and indigenous highlife guitar melodies. Guest Rapper, Akan played the role of a promising politician on campaign for vote , and was produced by Qube.
