Mahama’s 2024 election campaign song is complete – Nacee

"Mahama's 2024 campaign song was ready much earlier." I finished it a long time ago. It's cocoa season, so I'm not going to stop writing songs for political parties. "We all know the system is difficult," he added in answer to a viewer's inquiry. Nacee emphasised that making these songs is a unique technique for political parties to communicate campaign themes to the broader population.

Nacee, the composer behind multiple election campaign songs for former President John Dramani Mahama, has disclosed that the official campaign song for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer in the 2024 elections is already in the works.

In an interview with Kwadwo Sheldon, the gospel artist who has been producing songs for the NDC since 2012, he revealed that he finalised the campaign song for the 2019 elections well in advance.

“Mahama’s 2024 campaign song was ready much earlier.” I finished it a long time ago. It’s cocoa season, so I won’t stop writing songs for political parties. “We all know the system is difficult,” he added in answer to a viewer’s inquiry.

Nacee emphasised that making these songs is a unique technique for political parties to communicate campaign themes to the broader population.

He went on to say, “The political parties are selling their messages, so you just have to find ways you can make their messages more meaningful and simpler for the ordinary person to grasp.”

Nacee also addressed allegations about his allegiance to the opposition political party.

“I own a studio, so anyone who enters it is my client.” I work for you because you pay me. It’s all about business. My studio devices don’t have NPP or NDC printed on them. I began working for Mahama in 2012 and will continue until 2020. Prior to that, I wrote songs for Kufour and Ndoum in the early 2000s.”

Some of Mahama’s well-known campaign songs, including ‘E dey bee,’ ‘Onaapo,’ and ‘Mahama Okada,’ are credited to Nacee.
