Speaking on Joy FM's News Night programme on Monday, May 9, 2022, Sammy Gyamfi noted that the former Bishop is an NPP propagandist in cassock, merely doing the bidding of his party. "It is important to make this point that the statement from the so-called Bishop, Stephen Richard Bosomtwe Ayensu, are totally baseless and clearly borne out from his hatred for John Dramani Mahama and the NDC. Clearly, you can see that he is ... a very bitter NPP propagandist in a cassock who has been contracted to do the bidding of the NPP," Sammy Gyamfi said. He noted that, President Mahama has consulted widely to understand the hardship of Ghanaians and how the E-Levy imposed by the current administration will increase the burden of Ghanaians. “We should all endeavour to pay the E-Levy so the government could use the accrued money for development,” the man of God noted.

Speaking on Accra-based Peace FM on May 9, John Boadu said the NDC’s resolve to win power may be because it wants to “chew the meat and leave the bones” as it previously did when it was in power. The NPP scribe was addressing former president John Dramani Mahama’s comment that the next NDC government will scrap the E-levy when it wins power. Anytime they are in government, growth suffers, debt to GDP suffers, production suffers and almost everything suffers. “If that is what he [John Mahama] is saying, unfortunately, Ghanaians won’t give him that unpleasant opportunity to come back again to take such decisions which will make it retrogress,” John Boadu said. “A new National Democratic Congress Government, God willing and with the votes of the sovereign people of Ghana – in 2025 – will repeal the E-Levy Act.,” John Mahama told the gathering.

The Lynx Entertainment signee cautioned ladies against such acts adding that what he portrays in his music doesn't warrant any lady to touch his manhood without his consent. She was taller than me, I was looking at her and she just grabbed my manhood. I will never walk to a female artiste that I love and inappropriately touch them," said the disappointed singer in an interview with AJ Akuoko-Sarpong on Citi FM.
