Veteran hiplife artiste, Kontihene, has revealed his likeness for troubled businessman and owner of Menzgold, Nana Appiah Mensah.
The artiste known in real life as Emmanuel Appiah Boateng was on Citi TV’s Hall of Fame show with AJ Sarpong when he stated that even though he doesn’t know how NAM1 operates his gold business, he thinks there’s something about him that Ghana can tap into.
During the interview, he said “I like his spirit. I like his boldness. There is something about him that I like. I pray that we can use his brain for something better for ourselves”.
Kontihene also added that it’s true he does not want radio presenters to play his “Asase” song when discussing Menzgold issues, he has nothing against the young businessman.
Some radio presenters in recent times started playing Kontihene’s “Asesa” anytime they were discussing matters concerning Menzgold. He came out to warn them to stop playing the song.
The song gained currency in the heat of the Menzgold saga because of the line ‘Nana Appiah me nwom nie’ and the ‘hero-to-zero storyline of the song.
According to Kontihene, even though both of them are called Nana Appiah, it was not right to play his song for NAM1 in the wake of all his troubles. He quizzed why they did not do same to him when he was signing artistes with so much money.
Menzgold was asked to stop operation following a directive from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) due to irregularities in their operation.
