Samini challenges John Dumelo to presidential debate; Edem offers to moderate

Dancehall artiste Samini has thrown a challenge to actor John Dumelo for one-on-one debate on political issues.

Samini believes that since they both are nursing presidential ambitions; the debate will be a perfect platform for people to assess their political wits.

The dancehall artiste is eying Ghana’s highest seat in 2028 while John Dumelo hopes to run for the presidency in 20 years’ time.

Samini, born Emmanuel Andrews Samini, threw the challenge to the actor while promoting his latest album ‘Breaking News’ in an interview on Metro TV.

He said, “John Dumelo has also been in the news for presidential bids and politics lately. In the last quarter till now he’s been in the news over politics and I really would look forward to have him on a debate as a contender in another party.”

The ‘Iskoki’ singer was confident of winning the debate. “I think the two of us will make an interesting debate as presidential aspirants. But I am very sure I will win that debate though. Haha. John Dumelo, if you are watching, I challenge you to join me for a presidential debate.”

John Dumelo, who has been in the news for openly campaigning for the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) and also flirting with the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), is yet to respond to Samini’s challenge.

But before the actor could even respond to the challenge, rapper Edem has offered to moderate the debate should he agree.

Edem tweeted that, “I will be the moderator for @samini_dagaati n @johndumelo1 Debate… Interesting times for Freedom of Speech and Association”.
