Players in the creative arts complain about neglect by governments until elections but the truth is that, some of them also benefit during those times although some have also suffered for doing so.
It is perhaps in light of the consequences that the celebrities are now asking for money first before going public. Earlier this year, Hiplife musician, Wisa Greid told Graphic Showbiz that although he campaigned for free for the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2016 elections, he wouldn’t do so this time round.
Actress Vicky Zugah is also singing the same song. According to her, she would only be willing to campaign for any political party if she got a good offer financially.
“By campaigning for a political party, you are creating enemies for yourself because you don’t know which political parties your fans belong to. You can lose all your fans but that won’t be my problem if the money is good.
“Money is everything now and If any political party offers me a good amount, I will publicly come out to endorse that party,” she told Graphic Showbiz in an interview.
Vicky Zugah explained that politicians could not be trusted because they promised all sort of things just to come to power and then they delivered virtually nothing.
“Check the history, none of the political parties has been able to fulfill at least 80 per cent of its promises when they come to power. They will say everything to convince you to vote for them and disappoint you at the end.
“Gone are the days when I looked into the campaign messages of political parties before voting for them but I have now realised they all tell the same lies,” she said.
Vicky advised the youth not to kill themselves for a political party simply because they had been offered something good.
“I want to tell the youth to desist from engaging in any sort of riots during this election. If you are paid to create any form of commotion, have it at the back of your mind that you have a family. When you die, the politician will always get the next person to do the job he offered you,” she said.
Away from politics, Vicky Zugah revealed that she would be starting her own show on UTV titled Red Light from Thursday, September 3.
According to Vicky, there were a lot of relationship issues that Ghanaians wanted answers to and she wanted to use the opportunity to bring in experts to answer those questions.
She explained that the show will deal with sex, relationships and everything that has to do with matters of the heart.
Vicky Zugah is one celebrity who has not been shy to talk about love, sex and relationships detailing her preference for anal sex to the kind of man she wants to settle down with.
It is expected that she will add a personal touch to the Red Light show and viewers can expect a controversial, no-holds barred show.
