Former President of Musician Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Bice ‘Obour’ Osei Kufuor has lost the Asante Okyem South Primaries to the incumbent MP, Kweku Asante-Boateng.
Obour polled a vote of 296 against the incumbent’s 360 votes.
Obour revealed his intention to contest for the seat early this year following the rumours that the former MUSIGA president was ready to challenge for the seat.
The bid has seen various controversies from fellow artists including Criss Waddle and D-Black who openly criticised their former president of being corrupt.

The death of his father also nearly ended his political career after it was alleged that the father had died of COVID-19 and that Obour and his family had kept that secret from staff of Ridge Hospital.
He was also criticised for not keeping social distance protocols during his father’s funeral.
