John Dumelo says campaigning for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the 2012 and 2016 elections made movie producers to sideline him.

Speaking in an interview with Agyeman Prempeh on the Power Entertainment on Power 97.9FM, Saturday, 13 June 2020, the actor and politician said, “It has somehow hurt my career. 2012 and 2016 it affected me especially, It affected me more when the NDC lost the 2016 elections most of the producers I worked with left me.”

“I knew the outcome [of endorsing the NDC] So, I wasn’t worried,” the father of one added.

Mr Dumelo, who’s contesting for Member of Parliament in the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency on the ticket of the opposition NDC believes everything is political in Ghana.

“Ghana everything is political, you understand,” Mr Dumelo said. “Everything is the NDC and the NPP. Even in our workplaces which isn’t politics we do politics there. So, in the movie industry it is not different. Reason I know everything is politicized in Ghana.”

“If that’s the way forward we won’t progress because always we’ll do things in party lines. NDC, NPP even if there’s a contract or endorsement they’d treat it as NDC, NPP,” He added.

He urged Ghanaians to desist from politicizing everything and put Ghana first. That way, he said we can move on as a nation.

“I think the best [thing] is to put Ghana first. Once you put Ghana first, it’d depoliticise the current system. If you’ve Ghana first then political is secondary. It will end the victimization. If you look at me despite all and sundry knowing I belong to the NDC I always try to put Ghana first and once everyone does that everything will be okay,” he concluded.

John Dumelo joined via phone other celebrities to share their experience on the topic, “Effects of Endorsing Political Party as a Celebrity”.
