Former president John Dramani Mahama on Saturday attended the wedding of Ghanaian actor, John Dumelo, and his wife, Gifty Mawunya, in Accra.

Mahama presence at the event was to lend support to his friend and supporter, John Dumelo, who campaigned massively for him in the 2016 presidential election, which the former president lost.

Mahama’s appearance at the event was met with wild cheers and applause from the many celebrity guests in attendance.


Some of them instantly began singing and dancing to Mahama’s campaign song, “Onaapo”. The former president instantly became the star of the show, temporarily creating the impression that he was the one getting married.

As soon as he made his way to the couple, the former president exchanged pleasantries with them and enthusiastically congratulated them. He also appeared to share some jokes with Dumelo, which got the latest husband in town laughing.

Mahama had been expected to grace the wedding with his presence, given the massive support he enjoyed from Dumelo in the last election. Dumelo endorsed Mahama for president and appeared with on several campaign platforms. The actor also travelled to remote areas of the country to campaign for Mahama.

His activism for the former president drew condemnation from supporters of the then-opposition party, the NPP. However, an unfazed Dumelo continued to campaign for the then-incumbent president. And although Mahama lost that election, he has obviously not forgotten Dumelo’s contribution to his campaign.
