Lilwin has a message for the skeptics who dismiss his political aspirations as a joke because politics is not for people of his caliber who are not proficient in the English language.
The well-known Kumawood performer and actor stated that he will speak to his audience in Twi and, if necessary, have it translated.
He believes that any potential linguistic hurdles are outweighed by the significance of his ideas and services to society, especially to his constituency. He said that “We use common sense to speak English,” underscoring the idea that common sense is greater than the English language.
The CEO of Weezy Empire and Great Minds International School said in an interview with renowned blogger Nkonkonsa in Cape Coast, “I am ever willing to assist the young of my constituency with employment creation…No one is lazy, but the kids have become lazy since there are no jobs available.
Lilwin continued by saying, “Very soon, Afigya Kwabre independent MPs, rich people, and business people have come forward to support my bid. We are ready, and my campaign manager is Kwame Nkrumah Tikesee of Okay FM, so if there is anything you can contact him. Excuse me to say, common sense is bigger than English. We use common sense to speak English, so if I don’t understand English, I will speak Twi for it to be translated, like what the Chinese do, especially their president.”
The actor expressed his intention to run as an independent in the general elections of 2024 for the Ashanti region’s Afigya Kwabre South seat.
The musician and comedian, real name Kwadwo Nkansah, claims that he is making the change in response to numerous requests from the traditional leaders and constituents who have been expressing confidence in his abilities to represent the constituency currently represented by William Owuraku Aidoo of the New Patriotic Party.
