Oh no it's election time in America. Hillary asked her pals to vote for her campaign song earlier this year to amusing effect. Back in 2004, John A. Kufuor's presidential re-election campaign in Ghana was bolstered(?) by this tape—with or without the express approval of the "gentle giant" himself (the cover misspells the man's name).

Praise-laden sloganeering via song and rap here. Buried in the cassette notes it says vocals by Oheneba E.K. Nana Tufour Jnr. When in Ghana vote with thumb and ink (see tape cover).
