Kumawood actor Kwadzo Nkansah, known in the entertainment world as Lilwin, has announced his burning urge to run for the Afigya Kwabere South parliamentary seat in the Ashanti Region.

Lil Win’s decision to step into the political arena is being influenced by the encouragement and endorsement from local chiefs and elders within the said constituency.

These influential figures reportedly approached him with the proposal of running for the parliamentary seat, expressing their strong support and commitment to ensuring his victory. Lil Win, in an interview with Accra-based Okay FM, revealed that he was initially approached by a group of elders in October 2022.

The actor admitted that his initial response was reluctance, but the persistent encouragement from the local chiefs and leaders eventually convinced him to embrace the opportunity.

The call started coming in October 2022, and they have already engaged my mother, and other relatives on their request, and I have also accepted it“, he said.

I wasn’t interested in the bid from the beginning, but now, I believe I have to respond to the call of my people, he stated.
