President John Dramani Mahama turned 57 on Sunday, November 29 and there have been tonnes of birthday wishes to the first gentleman of the land.
Top on the list of personalities who have taken the time off to send a birthday message to the president are two ‘former’ friends – John Dumelo and Yvonne Nelson – who had a fallout because of the first gentleman.
The two had a fallout because of their views on the current power crisis (popularly called Dumsor) and a troubled economy that Ghanaians are still grappling with.
On May 16 this year, Yvonne Nelson led some celebrities, including Sarkodie and DKB, to hold a vigil – dumsormuststop – aimed at putting pressure on the government to find a solution to the severe power crisis.
The peaceful procession pulled one of the biggest crowds ever seen in the country.
Shortly after that, the actress and John Dumelo had a Twitter fight with Yvonne calling John an “a** kisser” for holding a divergent view on the #dumsormuststop campaign.
On the president’s birthday Sunday, the actress reminded the president that he needs to end the power crisis.
