Rapper Okyeame Kwame has issued a 72-hour ultimatum to veteran musician Gyedu-Blay Ambolley to retract allegations that he received GH¢50,000 from the immediate past president of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA).
The rapper, born Kwame Nsiah Appau, through his lawyers, is demanding the veteran musician retracts his comments stressing that he has never received any such amount from either Bice Osei Kuffour (Obour) or MUSIGA.
Gyedu-Blay Ambolley, speaking in an interview on Showbiz 927 on 3FM with MzGee, alleged that the former president of musicians’ body shared the GH¢2 million that was given to the union by the government to some selected musicians, and cited Okyeame Kwame as one of the recipients.
He further alleged that the musicians never paid the money back.
Okyeame Kwame, through his lawyers – Smith & Adelaide Law – has denied the allegations.
“Our client’s attention has been drawn to defamatory statements you made against our client during an interview that you granted to TV3. During the staid interview, you alleged that our client was given Ghc50,000 by the President of MUSIGA at the time as a loan and which money our client did not repay. This interview has been published by other media platforms,” his lawyers said in a strongly worded letter to the veteran musician.
“Sir, we have the instructions of our client to inform you that your statements are false and a little due diligence on your side would have revealed the untruth in your statement,” the letter added.
