Ambolley apologises to Okyeame Kwame

Renowned Ghanaian highlife musician, Gyedu-Blay Ambolley has apologised to hiplife artiste Okyeame Kwame over claims that the latter received monies shared with musicians.
In February 2020, musician Gyedu-Blay Ambolley alleged that few musicians in the country were the sole beneficiaries of the GH¢2 million government gave to MUSIGA.
This claim that he (Okyeame Kwame ) was given a share of the government ¢2 million meant for the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), was refuted and an apology was demanded which never materialised.

Following this, Okyeame Kwame sued Ambolley for defamation three years ago.

A release by Ambolley’s lawyers revealed that the parties opted to settle the matter “In a court-connected mediation process.”

In an apology on LinkedIn, Ambolley noted that he was ‘mistaken’, explaining that MUSIGA’s former President Bice Osei Kuffour aka Obour did not personally hand over any government fund as a loan to Okyeame Kwame.
He admitted that his claims that the ‘Made In Ghana’ hitmaker did not repay the money he received were also false.

RE: Kwame Nsiah Apau v Gyedu-Blay Ambolley; Suit No. GJ/0792/2020 In the course of an interview on 3FM on the 22nd of February 2020 concerning the use of some funds donated by the Government of Ghana to the Musicians Association of Ghana (MUSIGHA), I was mistaken concerning some of the details of the matter, particularly with respect to my colleague musician and MUSIGHA member Kwame Nsiah Apau also known as Okyeame Kwame and I wish to correct and clarify those facts as follows: Obour did not give Okyeame Kwame a personal loan from MUSIGHA funds. To support artistes and enable them access to loans, MUSIGHA entered an arrangement with Midland Bank and provided security/collateral for the arrangement. Okyeame Kwame only took advantage of the initiative and applied for a loan from Midland Bank which he was given. He has informed me that he has since paid back the bank in full. To the extent that my earlier statements may have affected the reputation of Okyeame Kwame, I apologize and state that the errors in my statements were not made maliciously.
