I’m Sorry For Writing A Song About You – Barima Sidney Apologizes To John Mahama For The ‘Papa No’ Song

Ghanaian hiplife artist Barima Sidney, also known as Sidney Kofi Ofori, has publicly apologized to former President John Dramani Mahama for his song ‘Papa No’ which was released three years ago.

He clarified that the song was not specifically targeting Mr. Mahama, despite the widespread belief among Ghanaians.

Many people believed the song contributed to Mr. Mahama’s loss in the 2020 elections.

Barima Sidney explained that the song was inspired by a social media trend at the time, where two celebrities, Gloria Kani and Tracey Boakye, were discussing a mysterious figure referred to as ‘Papa No’.

He mentioned that he was simply creating music to entertain his fans and did not have any particular individual in mind when writing the song.

However, some individuals added Mr. Mahama’s images to the track without his knowledge.

During an interview on Joy Prime’s Prime Morning show, Barima Sidney expressed his regret and apologized to the former President for any unintended harm caused.

He emphasized that ‘Papa No’ was meant for everyone and not just Mr. Mahama.

He urged people to understand that he had no ill intentions and that the song was created in a lighthearted manner.
