For the sake of dispelling doubts in the course of discussing Mr. Lucky Mensah, I feel obligated to quote the definition of certain phrases or words.
What is a professional musician? “A professional musician is one who playsan instrument or several instruments proficiently; performing is their primary source of income. Musicians have to get lucky, get discovered, and to do that they need to be in the right place at the right time. Luck can be created, directed, manipulated and controlled.”
What is a gold digger? A gold digger is a person who seeks or digs for goldin a gold field. However, I may go for its informal or slang definition – A woman who associates with or marries a man chiefly for material gain. This definition certainly applies to men as well.
Lucky Mensah is an alleged renowned musician in the eyes of many in Ghana. He made a song that clearly assisted the NDC with their 2008 electioneering campaign. It sensitized Ghanaians to the hardships under the Kufuor-led NPP government. Ghanaians acknowledge the song garnered the NDC more winning votes. That song was/is titled “Yere se sa mu.”
Within the first year of the NDC ascending to the presidency and overall power, Lucky Mensah made another song. In the second song titled “Nkratu3”, he viciously slurred President Mills. By the insinuating lyrics, he revealed how the President’s weaknesses, mediocrity, actions and inactions are running Ghana into a ditch.
Truly and unprecedentedly, President Mills with his NDC government has performed abysmally. Lucky Mensah informed Ghanaians that the NDC have not only been ungrateful to him but also, completely ignored him. While he was in financial straitjacket, many members of the NDC with the top gurus inclusive were living in unprecedented gargantuan affluence, he said. It was and is still a fact.
This same Lucky Mensah, an opportunist without morals, made another song for the NDC after holding “palm-greasing” consultation with them. He recently announced to have made a yet to be launched campaign song for President Mills titled “Atta beye.”
Mensah is a confused person in search of wealth by any foul means possible. He is neither honest with himself nor with Ghanaians. He is only in pursuit of money, cashing in on the corruptibility of the NDC government at the least opportunity. What else can explain his actions if they are not corruption-induced?
Every sensible Ghanaian knows how President Mills as unhealthy, incompetent and puppet as he is, is running down the country. Look at the propensity at which his Ministers, especially Okudzeto Ablakwah, Betty Mould-Iddrisu and Ebo Barton-Odro are not only goading dubious companies and persons to sue Ghana for judgment debt payments but also, defending such courses.
Cost of living, personal insecurity, official corruption etc. are many folds far worse under President Mills-led NDC government than they were under the Kufuor-led NPP government. This is a fact. Where then comes in with that nonsense by Lucky Mensah showering praises on President Mills and the NDC. If he is that stupid to sell his conscience for money, he should not assume he could fool Ghanaians with his songs to fall for his trickery.
Lucky Mensah is not a professional musician but a wicked, dishonest Ghanaian in pursuit of illegal wealth.
I will advise all honest Ghanaians to shun Lucky Mensah and the NDC. There should be no sympathy vote for President Mills. Ghanaians cannot stomach any further abuses by the NDC. The Ever patient God cannot even tolerate their corruption any further. God’s patience I should think has waned thin for the NDC and President Mills. In the eyes of the corruption-infested NDC Ghanaians are major fools.
I call on all wise Ghanaians to embark on home-to-home, village-to-village and one-to-one campaign to educate Ghanaians about the necessity to vote President Mills and the NDC out of power on December 7, 2012.
They will surely sink with Lucky Mensah, a bunch of greedy bastards! ***
