Ghanaian gospel musician, Evangelist Diana Asamoah, has revealed that she has recorded a campaign song for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in preparation for the 2024 general elections.
According to her, the song was fully composed before the NPP presidential primaries, awaiting only for the winner’s name to be added to it.
Diana Asamoah, known for her affiliation with the NPP and her past contributions to the party’s campaign songs during President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s term, confirmed that her campaign song is now ready for Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, who emerged victory in the NPP primaries, securing the party’s flagbearer position for the 2024 general elections.
In an interview with Okay FM on Monday, November 6, 2023, Diana refuted claims that Dr Bawumia’s name was included in the song before the NPP primaries. She expressed her unwavering support for the NPP and underscored the importance of divine guidance in their decisions.

Diana Asamoah explained, “If it were you who won, I would have used your name for the song,” addressing the show host, Abeiku Santana.
