I am a stakeholder in the creative industry and at the same time, I love politics devoid of insults and uncouth behaviors. I respect and cherish all entertainment shows in the media space.
Some few months ago, Dr Likee and his team, went to the Achimota Mall and misbehaved, we spoke our mind and put him where he belonged.
In 2008, the Creative Arts for Change was formed to espouse the ideas and ideals of the then candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo whose love for the creative industry remains unchanged despite the myriads of problems.
The leaders the Creative Arts for Change group then include A-Plus, Mark Okraku Mantey (the one now appointed as Deputy Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture) Socrate Safo, Nana Fredua-Agyeman Ofori-Atta, Helen Godschild, myself, Bandex and others.
Since the NPP assumed the reign of power in 2017, A-Plus fell off with them and a majority of his interactions in the media space especially on UTV United Showbiz, has been negative comments about this government sometimes with Bulldog joining the fray. You may not like his posture and others on the show however, unlawful entry into the studio to show him where power lies, was despicable, unpleasant, unprofessional and a dent on the image of the youth of the NPP.
I condemn the act of A-Plus tearing a “supposed” letter from the “NPP” to the UTV management live on television. He could have been circumspect but whom am I? He respects me so much since his music journey started from my studio.
UTV, is a private radio station and can invite whoever they chose to be on their United Showbiz so, if the NPP assume they are not fairly represented, they should call for invitation rather than invasion. What happened last Saturday night with the intrusion of some NPP youth and threats from A-Plus, should be condemned in no uncertain terms!
If the supposed youth from the NPP hadn’t gone there, couldn’t an amicable solution be found to curb this? The Police, must investigate this issue and the culprits, dealt with. Fawas Amasaman, WKHKYD?
I know my reaction on this platform called Facebook on this subject will be limited by some unseen hands, but I care less.
Good beads don’t rattle.
