barstoolsports.com said it was pretty sure this Ghanaian uncle Obama song contains the maximum amount of sexual innuendo possible” Wait…so this jawn isn’t about the election? Uncle Obama’s banana isn’t a metaphor for universal healthcare and the monkey doesn’t stand for the millions of uninsured people in America? It’s just about penises? Well shit. Consider my worldview shattered.”
Rightthisminute.com featured it in its ‘Daily Huh?’ and wrote: “You have to admit, today’s Daily Huh? video is catchy. Sing it, “Uncle Obama’s ba-na-na!” Feast your eyes on the colorful spectacle that is Sister Deborah singing “Uncle Obama” featuring FOKN Bois. If you take a single thing away from this music video, make sure it’s that giving Sister Deborah’s monkey Uncle Obama’s banana will make him so very happy.”
Eric Dondero of libertarianrepublican.net wrote that Ghana goes Ga Ga for Uncle Obama and said: “A great many African immigrants have received citizenship and voting rights under the Obama administration in the last four years. Northern Virginia, in particular is home to recent immigrants from Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone, and Ghana. Is it any coincidence that this “Obama Girl” style video comes out a few weeks before the election?”
Allvoices.com wrote that the singer’s ‘Uncle Obama’ music video is quite the disturbing show. “Four year ago there was “Obama Girl” and this election doesn’t disappoint with “Obama’s niece’s” disturbing yet strangely hot music video.A young Ghanaian woman calling herself Sister Deborah, can be seen in the above musical début, singing the praises of “Uncle Obama’s banana” that she would love to give to her “monkey.Apparently the president is unaware of this niece but she seems to be very aware of him.

Jezebel.com wrote: “This ‘Uncle Obama’ Song Out of Ghana Is All About Dongs. Could Sister Deborah, a dancehall performer out of Ghana, have written the song of the 2012 U.S. election cycle? Sure, why not? Oh, here’s why not — it’s all about penises.”
