Record producer Appiah Dankwah, widely known as Appietus has expressed shocked only eighteen delegates voted for him at the just ended Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) elections on Satuday.
Appietus contested against incumbent president, Bice Osei Kuffour popularly known as Obour and hi-life artiste Gyedu-Blay Ambulley for the presidential seat but lost woefully after polling only 18 out of 150 total votes cast. Gyedu-Blay Ambulley polled 22 votes while incumbent, Obour polled 88 votes.
The election came off on Saturday October 31 in the Eastern Regional capital Koforidua.
Appietus had vigorously campaigned that the incumbent was not a “listening president” and had disregarded all forms of advice from his predecessors.
In an interview on Peace FM’s Entertainment Review after the declaration of results, the music maker expressed shock delegated had failed to vote massively for him considering how well he had campaigned to drum home his message to lead the union. He remarked “fear delegates” when he was commenting on how he takes the news of his loss.
Appietus however congratulated Obour and wished him well in his endeavor as president for the next four years.
