The 72-hour ultimatum Okyeame Kwame’s lawyers gave Gyedu-Blay Ambolley to apologize for a ‘defamatory comment’ he made about him is almost up and the highlife legend is yet to apologize.
And it’s because he says he needs more than the given 72 hours to render an apology to the rapper.
Ambolley was speaking during an interview with MzGee on 3FM’s Showbuzz, Thursday, when he stated that he is not ready to apologise within the 72 hours, stressing that he will need a week to make his checks and revert accordingly.
“Not yet,” he stated when asked if he is ready to retract and apologize.
“It’s something that happened. If he says he did not receive anything, let him say he didn’t receive anything. But I know those who surrounded Obour, some monies were issued to them.”
Ambolley recently alleged that he has evidence that former president of Musician Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) Bice Osei Kuffuor (Obour) gave Okyeame Kwame and some other people GHC50,000 each from the GHC2m fiscal budget money which the government gave the union in 2012.
“All these are on paper. They are all there. When the time comes, let them come and challenge me and everything will come out,” he categorically stated.
Few hours later, Okyeame Kwame, through his lawyer Bobby Banson ESQ FCIArb of Smith & Adelaide legal firm, served Ambolley to a letter to retract the statement. He threatened to sue if the veteran failed to do the needful within 72 hours.
“We spoke and I told him that a week after, I would come back to him because I know that some things happened there… If he wants to take it to court, he can. He is part and parcel of those that were surrounding Obour. Like he said, he was with Obour for two years. If he says he didn’t receive it, that’s fine,” Ambolley noted.
