NDC campaign goes 'Chinese'

William Smith popularly known as “Chineseman” of TV3’s Music Music fame has joined a litany of celebrities campaigning for President John Dramani Mahama in his bid to retain power in the upcoming December 7 polls. Clad in National Democratic Congress (NDC) party colours of red, black , green and white, Chineseman mounted almost all the podia during President Mahama’s four-day campaign tour of the Ashanti Region, to appeal to voters to find solace in the ruling party.

He was accompanied by Frederick Eghan, popularly known as Efo of Kantanta fame, who did the translations of the so called Chinese language in the Akan dialect to the teeming NDC supporters.

Their collaboration was a delight to watch as their performances really earned massive applauds from the thrilled party supporters anywhere they accompanied the President.

At a point, President Mahama and some other officials who accompanied him throughout the campaign tour, could not help but join the supporters as they burst into laughter amid that rib-cracking political appeal.

One of Chinese man’s lines which he kept repeating on all the platforms he mounted was “JM Shaalai tui”, which according to his translator, Efo, meant “JM Toaso”.

The already thrilled supporters were also carried away by Efo’s voltarian version of the Akan language during his interpretations.

Chineseman and Efo join the likes of John Dumelo, Ola Micheal, Mzbel, Tracey Boakye “Mr Beautiful” and others who are actively campaigning for President Mahama and the NDC ahead of this year’s general election.
