Ghanaian dancehall artist Samini has said that his role as president of the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration’s (GIMPA) Student’s Representative Council (SRC) will help him better grasp political governance for his future endeavors.
He asserts that he is confident the position will prepare him for future advancement to more important political positions.
The Linda hitmaker remarked, “I’m eager to chart the route of politics after flourishing in the creative realm as a Dancehall artiste,” during the SRC’s swearing-in ceremony on Tuesday, August 23.
The opportunity would also help me better grasp the governance area, Samini said, adding that he was glad to serve the people.
The Dancehall artist was lauded by Mark Okraku-Mantey, Deputy Minister for Tourism, Arts, and Culture, for overcoming the challenges faced by creatives to advance his studies and advance his profession.
Given that Samini had to juggle the high expectations of his fame profile as a musician with continuing to pursue his academic aspirations, he acknowledged that Samini’s decision to pursue his studies was a difficult task.
“It is difficult, particularly if you have a few followers there and some of the lecturers opt to speak with you anyhow because of your popularity. However, you have been dedicated to this cause and are in your final year, and for that, I am very proud of you,” he noted.
