Kennedy Agyapong,who represents Assin North in parliament for the New Patrotic Party, has denied promising to pay five legendary Ghanaian highlife musicians ¢5,000 each, every single month. www.entertainmentgh.com reports!
It was reported that veteran hiplife musicians, AB Crentsil, Nana Kwame Ampadu, Jewel Ackah, Obuoba J. A. Adofo and C. K. Mann, were promised an amount of ¢5,000 each as monthly salaries from the benevolent legislator.
The gesture which was announced at the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) Presidential Ball, had reports stating that, it was part of the Assin Central MP’s support to help, as part of his package to the development of music in Ghana.
But speaking on Adom TV’s Morning Show “Badwam” programme, the politician said there was a miscommunication between him and Bice Osei Kuffour (Obour), MUSIGA President.
According to him, he promised to pay ¢1,000 each to the renowned musicians, an amount which will total ¢5,000 for the five musicians.
“I think there was a miscommunication somewhere. I met Obour at Flagstaff House last night and told him my ¢5,000 is ready but the issue is that I never promised to give each of them ¢5,000,” he said.
Despite the miscommunication, he stated that the GHC5,000 which they (the musicians) are to share amongst themselves is ready so MUSIGA should come for it.
The GHC1,000 package will still come in handy for the veterans, although it looks like the MP is revoking on his promise as earlier reported.
