Stephen Atubiga has described rapper Sarkodie as a dog wandering in Bolgatanga market who does not know what he is about.
The National Democratic Congress(NDC) sympathizer speaking on Adom FM’s Evening NewsThursday expressed disappointment in the rapper and several other celebrities who have taken it upon themselves to hold a vigil to put pressure on government to end the power crisis.
According to him, the celebrities are doing the bidding of New Patriotic Party (NPP) and believes the party’s flag bearer, Nana AKufo-Addo is the architect of their actions.
“If Sarkodie whose music I like and adore want to be a politician today, then he should come clean, if he wants to support his uncle Akufo-Addo to be president, he should come clean, no one would prevent him…but if he want to behave like a Binduri dog in a cow attire in Kumasi market, we won’t permit him at all…,” he said.
The rapper and his colleagues have planned the event to protest their dislike for the persistent power fluctuations that has led to the collapse of many companies.
Actresses, Yvonne Nelson, Lydia Forson and several members in the art and entertainment industry since the launch of #DumsorMustStop campaign to ensure an end to the energy crisis have suffered several abuses.
While Alhaji Alidu Haruna called them prostitutes and irresponsible, Stephen Atubiga believed they were doing the bidding ofopposition chairman, Nana Akufo-Addo.
Atubiga who shot to fame after making disparaging comments during the 2012 election petition when he was sentenced to prison for wrong comments, argued that the celebrities are just doing that to frustrate the Mahama administration.
As a punishment for the celebrities including Sarkodie, he said he would be organizing some supporters of the NDC to burn down CDs of the celebrities.
“If a dog does not respect, it is not in the Bolga market that it would go and full…we the NDC sympathisers would burn all their CD’s and movies if they do so…,”
He continued that the whole idea of a vigil for Dumsor is wrong questioning
“who is dead for them to go and put on candle for a vigil…I ask again?”
