Musician, David Aja, has said he wasn’t paid for his hit campaign song Onaapo.According to him, he was not approached by the National Democratic Congress but he did the song for the love of the party he has supported for some time now.
David Aja who was speaking to Pulse.com.gh in Accra said: “I was not approached at all. I started following the party when Prof. Mills was the candidate so I did a song for him but God called him and another attractive man came and I did a song for him. People are appreciating me for the song because they think I have done a good job. But no one has paid me because I did it to support my party and whatever anybody gives me or didn’t give me will not stop me from doing a song for my party”.
On why the choice of Onaapo, David Aja indicated that the candidate for the NDC, John Dramani Mahama is an attractive and very marketable material hence the choice of Onaapo in the music adding that he started the dream and his tea.
“You see when you have something that is so beautiful in Ga you have no other explanation but just to say Onaapo. So Onaapo is just a term to say Mahama is too much, he is too much,” Aja told Pulse.com.gh.
Aja disclosed that reports that he did the song with Nacee was true because he recorded the song in his studio and he did some finishing touches to make the song a great hit.
Although Barima Sydney did not approach Aja before the remix of the song, he expressed his delight at the fact that Barima Sydney rode on his song and beat to produce a remix of his song adding that if he jumps onto his beat or song in the coming days, he should also not complain.
He expressed his joy at the fact that his song is bringing Ghanaians together to tell the international community that we are peace loving people and have a bond that binds us.
Onaapo, an election banger has been the favourite of Ghanaians mostly NPP sympathisers after their flagbearer was declared the winner in the just ended election.
