Politics is game of smart people not everyone adjusts in it. In Ghana, it is very common to find actors, actresses and musicians trying to use their fame to win seats.
However, in politics it’s not only about the fame. Perhaps, celebrities in other countries may have used their popularities to slice careers in politics, but in Ghana the Electoral College does not just buy into that.
As a result of this, there are many top stars who have tried to make the switch into politics but have failed.
The reasons for their disappointments may be many, but the bottom-line is that Ghanaians do not vote based on your role as a singer, actor or actress.
Below is list of actors/actresses who failed in politics:
She contested as a Parliamentary candidate for the Birim North Constituency in the Eastern Region on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), but lost unfortunately. She returned again to contest for the same position in 2008 – this time on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party. Maame Dokono was again unlucky as she lost for the second time.
The singer revealed on her Instagram page that she was ready to serve the people of Awutu Senya West Constituency in Parliament, with reports suggesting she was on the side of the New Patriotic Party (NPP). She did not pick her nomination forms, tough, and subsequently did not contest in the election.
Seth Kwame Dzokoto:
Three-years-ago he was appointed the deputy-Propaganda Secretary of the NDC in the Tarkwa Nsuem constituency. In 2016 he rose to contest for the Parliamentary seat in the constituency on the ticket of the party.
She won the right to represent the NDC as Parliamentary candidate in the Tema West Constituency. She was, however, beaten to it by the NPP’s Kofi Brako, who successfully retained the seat after a landslide victory.
Diamond Appiah used to be known as a singer however, she made a turn into politics early last year. She was, however, unsuccessful as she lost in the election.
