Asked by the host if “ he doesn’t have any hard feelings for Samini and Sarkodie for endorsing Nana Addo?“, John Mahama answered; “I like them, they are young talented musicians and my attitude towards them doesn’t change. Samini has been someone I like his music ‘Linda’ and all that. We all loved that music, and so if he’s endorsed Nana Addo, he must have his reasons for doing that.”
