New Parliamentary chamber: John Dumelo, Samini trade punches

New Parliamentary chamber John Dumelo, Samini trade punches

Actor John Dumelo and dancehall great, Samini are battling it out on Twitter, following a tweet by the actor on plans to build a new Parliamentary chamber.

The actor, in a tweet, pleaded with Parliament to halt their preparations to build the new chamber explaining the $200m could be used to build 10 factories to employ 10,000 Ghanaians.

Samini, who agreed with the tweet, pointed out, however, that a Landcruiser V8 vehicle retrieved from John Dumelo, allegedly given to him by the former NDC government could equally have solved problems in his village if the money used to purchase the vehicle was applied properly.

Samini - John Dumelo

John Dumelo made the headlines in late March 2017, when he was accused of driving without approval, a government vehicle, a Toyota Land Cruiser with registration GE 8118 –16. The vehicle he used throughout the 2016 elections when he campaigned for then-President John Mahama, was found at a workshop in 2017 with men trying to respray it.

He told host of Joy FM’s Cosmopolitan Mix, Doreen Andoh, in an interview, he bought the car from somebody but did not know at the time whether it was a government vehicle or not. He did not mention whom he bought the car from and the details of the transaction.

Resurrecting the issue in a reply to the actor’s tweet on the new chamber for Parliament, Samini tasked John Dumelo to reveal the details behind the V8 controversy, “did you try to keep it or they lied on you chale. Ghana wants to know.”

You no hear the matter I talk eeh ? Wa so y3 ding too much. I say we want full story of the case nu because most of us still believe you tried to keep a notional asset and they come for it based on tip off. If that’s true do you think it’s fair to Ghana?

The actor who refused to give the details to the controversy posted a photo of his new V8 taking a jab at Samini and his record label Highgrade Family.

“If you work hard, you can upgrade from a 2017 V8 to a 2019 V8. This is an upgrade, not a highgrade,” John Dumelo tweeted.

He also accused the singer of using social media to stay relevant. The actor, who has made his political ambitions clear, wondered why Samini found it useful question him on how he got his V8 but completely ignored his philanthropic and farming activities.

Unfazed by the comments, Samini pressed for more answers on the saga, explaining his comments are not for jokes or a publicity stunt.

He wrote, “you see the guy en answer? ebe today I see say @johndumelo1 no Dey guard. Told you this is not comedy. The only reason I called you out was because we never got to the bottom of your v8 case as a nation. Not because I support the foolish chamber idea bro.dont try Rasta.”

You’ve not answered my simple question Mr Dumelo. Did you try to keep the 2017 v8 as rumored or not. Did you try to change the car at the “sprayer “ en shop or not ? 😂If yes you are not ready for this my brother. If no then just say “No I did not”. With proof. is me https://twitter.com/johndumelo1/status/1146722780806881282

Nana Yaw@ArmaniVivinel

fans of Dumelo want to conceal his v8 saga but okay to talk about the prosecution of some politicians.
That’s where hypocrisy starts

Charles@Selormdiam

Samini should just stop the partisan politics and let us all push the agenda to stop the building of the chamber

Changing…@DarlingKof1

Dumelo then Samini who be partisan? Where the V8 dey? Corruption is corruption at all levels. The question Samini posed was right in every way

But Dumelo be funny oh. I mean I like him as a person(funny and down to earth) but sometimes I wonder if he thinks we forgot that he illegally received a car from government and wait for it…was about to go “pimp my ride it” .

Adewale 🔥@Original_KW

There’s many things to talk about but 1st lets come together and make sure this Chamber doesn’t come on.Dumelo V8 is not important now.There’re many people who had this V8 some and you’re only talking about Dumelo because he’s the only public figure you know about

We all for protect state property. Samini want investigate😁

Simple@simple11111111

He’s not an investigator or auditor. Yes he can ask questions but it’s not compulsory for Dumelo to answer his questions.

Changing…@DarlingKof1

People saying Samini should not divert focus be funny. You don’t care about a $150,000 V8 car, a national property. This is a personality who has publicly shown himself as a politician. Dumelo must come clean because the youth must not be selective!

megye wo girl🇬🇭🇳🇬🇵🇷@megye_wo_girl

Samini is only asking for an explanation to clear his doubts and also the doubts of his fellow citizens.
Is it a wrong thing to do?

Adjaottor KORLEY 🦅@KingKorley7

I’m sure that, people (incl. samini) have already made up their minds. Hence no amount of explanation from Dumelo, would satisfy them. That is the reason why we should be seeking those infos from the investigative agencies and not him.
