Gospel artiste, Kenny Saint Best, who recently lost out in the All Progressive Congress (APC) House of Assembly primary elections to Folajimi Lai Mohammed has declared that she has learnt a lot in her new found romance with politics.
“The experience is that of inner strength. I got stronger because this was a new terrain, unlike entertainment that you have gotten so used to and you take everything for granted. I also got humbled. In entertainment, you have ego but in politics you dare not bring up that ego or you will be messed up” she told Potpourri
Continuing: “I learnt how to work with the grassroots; I learnt how to respect the grassroots. I learnt how to respect the ward leaders. I learnt to respect not just the ward leaders, but also the leaders at the local government levels. Politics is a terrain where what you say can either make you or mar you. In entertainment, we talk anyhow we like. In politics, you dare not be loose with what you say because it will be used against you, just like it’s done in the court of law. Everybody has their time in politics. On the flipside, overtaking is also allowed.”
On her current state of mind, the TV talk show host said: “My state of mind is that of a winner. It’s the state of mind of a potential political leader. It’s the state of mind of an overcomer because politics is challenging. I am new in politics, losing the first time cannot stop me”.
