Gospel Music Sensation, Patience Nyarko has expressed her disappointments in the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) for using her song at its delegate congress held in Koforidua two years ago and refusing to try to to the needful even after she says her management has done all the required procedure in approaching the party over the matter.
Speaking about it on the ‘Best Entertainment Show‘ hosted by Halifax Ansah-Addo on Okay FM on Monday morning, Patience Nyarko said the party’s refusal to try to to the proper thing after declaring her ‘Obi Nyanime’ song because the official campaign song without her approval has been the most important shock of her life.
This she says has caused her to lose the very best respect she once had for the party adding that she has been patient enough for 2 years and can’t tolerate the indiscipline nature again hence the needful must be done.
“NPP people owe me already, so if you continue to relate this my new single to them, I won’t love it . They used my hit song in 2018 as their official song at their rally in Koforidua without contacting me. Up till now, I’ve done all I can but it’s been of no better outcome. I have followed up to John Boadu for long but nothing has been done about it. I have written letters upon letters but nobody is minding me.”
“So I won’t say this new song is a political song, it’s for God’s children, anyone who feels to relate to it can. You can’t declare someone’s song as a politician song of a programme without contacting the person. That’s wrong. I have had enough patient but we can’t continue doing the incorrect thing. It really feels good for ‘big men’ within the party to feel pleased in using your song for such a programme but the proper thing must be done,” she said.
Director for Creative Arts at the National Commission on Culture (NCC), Socrate Safo on an equivalent show apologized on the party’s behalf for the error , adding that, the difficulty would be solved in the coming days.
“It’s good you’ve had enough patient concerning this matter, it might be solve for you soon. I would channel it to the acceptable quarters for you, it might be communicated to party heads for the needful to be done so don’t worry” he assured.
