Ghanaian Hiplife Musician Barima Sidney says sometimes he feels sad

when people tag him as a member of a particular political party.

"Sometimes it's sad when they tag me, but I've realised is a strategy

they use just to frustrate you on the course that you're championing,

since i realised it's a strategy, it doesn't border me anymore."

to sing it myself, there are so many people I can package for them to

sing. But if I have to sing as Barima Sidney, it depends and I don't

recall the last time I did such a thing."
