Highlife artiste Okyeame Kwame has reacted to claims he was one of the musicians given a share in government’s ¢2million meant for the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA).
He was accused by veteran musician Gyedu-Blay Ambolley for taking ¢50,000 as a loan and never returning it.
Bessa Simons, Ben Brako and TiC were musicians Ambolley also cited as beneficiaries of the ¢2 million handed out by former MUSIGA President Bice Osei Kufuor.
The ‘Made in Ghana’ hitmaker, however, disputed the claims adding that “…Ambolley has perpetrated fabricated lies about my character and reputation.”
Okyame Kwame wrote on Instagram that his lawyers were handling a suit against the veteran for his claims. He gave the veteran a minimum of 72 hours to apologise or face a lawsuit.

I will like to tell my business partners, stakeholders and my fans that Gyedu-Blay Ambolley has perpetrated untrue fabricated lies about my character and reputation. However, my lawyers are handling it. Thank you all for the support. It is my honest prayer that Gyedu Blay Ambolley, will do the needful which includes but not limited to due diligence, retraction and apology before the 72 hour duration given him. I hope this scripture will not be true in his case (Proverbs 16:18)ðŸ˜Š. Hopefully, this will not be a case study for testing the law of the land.
