Akwasi Poku, who goes by the stage name Kwaisey Pee, is a highlife musician. He has complained that Ashantis are too tribal, not good people, and favor the New Patriotic Party.
The Ashanti musician was talking about how famous people support political parties.
He said that celebrities who support the New Patriotic Party don’t lose their jobs, but when they support the National Democratic Congress, they do lose their jobs because Ashantis, who make up the majority of the country’s population, don’t buy from them anymore.
Kwaisey Pee said in an interview with Ohemaa Woyeje on Angel Fm, Monitored by Blogger Attractive Mustapha (Mustapha Nii Okai Inusah), that he used to play with Jewel Ackah’s band and that’s when he learned that endorsing NPP doesn’t change anything.
“When you support NPP, it doesn’t affect you because, back in the day, most entertainment shows were put on by the Ashantis, so if you don’t support NPP, they don’t call you for shows,” Kwaisey Pee said.
“If Ashantis were white, we would have called them racists, but they are black.”
“Some of the bad things Ashantis say about Gas and Ewes are bad and make them bad people.
