Legendary Ghanaian Gospel musician, Yaw Sarpong has confirmed he is prepared to feature in the campaign song of any political party should the opportunity avail itself.
According to him, his decision to do it is not because he has finally found trust in political parties in the country or is a member of any of them but it is borne out of business.
Yaw Sarpong said this in response to a question as to whether he is ready to do music for any political party in the country.
“Music is my work and I need money as well so I will do it, take the money and offer some to God”, he revealed in an interview with Sikka Fm monitored by MyNewsGh.com’s Syxtus Eshun in Kumasi.
To him, music is his business hence he is ready to record a song for any political party on the basis of business and not affiliation.
“I will do it with my band, therefore, any amount that will be sufficient for the operational cost of the band group is oK”, he affirmed.
On the other hand, Yaw Sarpong made it clear that he is not ready to tolerate any “God Bless You” as a form of appreciation for the job.
When asked which political party he belongs to, the legend said, “For politics, I have no affiliation because politicians are some kind of people who can easily mess up your music career with their utterances. Today one will say this and the next day the other will say something else”. He told Tony Montana the host of the show “Flavour Zone”.
Yaw Sarpong who has 26 albums to his credit is set to release yet another song with Sarkcess Music Boss Sarkodie this year.
