Bice Osei Kufour, the musician-turned-politician widely known as Obour, faced disappointment in his bid to become the NPP Parliamentary candidate for Asante Akim South.

In the 2024 NPP parliamentary primary, Kwaku Asante Boateng, the constituency’s incumbent MP, emerged victorious over Obour. Obour secured only 280 votes, accounting for 32.86% of the total votes, while Mr. Boateng received 522 votes, representing 61.27% of the votes cast. A third contender in the race garnered 59 votes, making up 5.87% of the total vote.

This marks Obour’s second loss in the NPP primaries. In the 2020 NPP parliamentary primaries, he initially contested against the incumbent MP but faced defeat with 296 votes. Notably, his recent performance in the 2024 primaries saw a decrease in the number of votes received compared to his previous attempt.

The Managing Director of Ghana Post Company Limited has been actively involved in politics after his music career, but the recent setback in the primaries indicates ongoing challenges in securing the party’s nomination for the Asante Akim South constituency.
