Dancehall artiste Stonebwoy says those wondering why he hasn’t spoken about the Menzgold saga should equally ask why President Akufo-Addo has remained silent on the issue.
According to him, issues regarding the embattled gold dealership firm are complicated and that is why one must be careful on what to say.
Stonebwoy is signed onto Zylofon Media and was also a brand ambassador for Menzgold before the company encountered its current troubles.
The Kpo k3k3 hitmaker believes the President would have spoken on the Menzgold saga, like he does for other important issues, if the matter was that simple.
“Our father, the President, always addresses issues when they come up. Nana Addo spoke about Anas’ Ahmed Killing and other important matters but he hasn’t spoken about this [Menzgold issue] and I want people to realize this angle and know it’s a big situation. It’s a bigger issue for me Stonebwoy who was once a brand ambassador to which I have delivered and I am done with,” he told Joy News.
Stonebwoy added that he still stands by his endorsement of Menzgold, insisting the best he can do is to help calm the agitating customers.
“Whoever went to Menzgold had a contract and there are procedures if you want your money back. The best I could have done was to put in a work to keep [customers] calm.
“I endorsed and still stand by [Menzgold]. This [Menzgold saga] is way beyond us and some people have invested in it for years and never complained until the government asked them to stop. The same people crying about their monies might have probably received half of their monies,” he stated.
Asked if the Menzgold saga has stained his reputation, Stonebwoy said: “My brand is clean and if I am called to speak, I will surely speak.”
Menzgold has had to deal with a lot of trouble following disagreements with the Bank of Ghana (BoG) regarding its operations.
Currently, the company has been forced to halt its collectibles and all other new businesses related to its gold vault market.
Meanwhile, the CEO of Menzgold, Nana Appiah Mensah has been declared wanted after an Accra Circuit Court issued a warrant for his arrest, while the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) has also frozen his accounts.
