A Plus blasts Catherine Afeku over AFRIMMA deal

Controversial musician, Kwame A Plus has poured his anger on the Tourism Minister, Madam Catherine Afeku for contributing to the All African Music Awards (AFRIMA) 2018 which was organized in Ghana.

Speaking with Andy Dosty on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, musician A Plus who doubles as a politician noted it was wrong for Ghana to allegedly use 4.5 million dollars of taxpayers’ money to support a foreign concert when the Creative Industry is in dying need of funds to survive.

“you spend 4.5 million dollars yet you don’t even have venues to hold concerts. The people who advised the President were wrong because who will advise the president to build a cathedral, why? People like Catherine Afeku don’t have any policy to do anything…”

“Who is AFRIMMA? I hear it belongs to some Nigerians and some people. Otchere-Darko said he watched ten movies and was depressed. Shirly Frimpong-Manso has done so much to sustain the industry and you have a minister who brings AFRIMMA here and they give you award to boost tourism? What are tourists coming to look for in Ghana? Motorway doesn’t even have lights. We have to keep our priorities right” he noted.

@shirleyfmanso and her colleagues directors, actors and actresses have gone through unspeakable struggles to sustain the Ghana movie industry. @sarkodie @stonebwoyb @shattawalenima @reggierockstone711 and many others have done all they can to sustain the Ghana music industry, but your minister for tourism and creative arts whose husband runs a travel and tour decided to spend 4.5 million dollars on Afrima, an event owned by Nigerians, who brought even their red carpet from Benin. You call Ghanaian actors to tell them to pay tax. You even backdate the taxes and tell them that if they don't pay you will jail them. Then you give the tax money to Nigerians to come and organize Afrima. You don't have ambulances but you have 4.5 million to give to Nigerians. Mention just one Ghanaian who has received one naira from Nigeria to organize an event. Nwhewh?animu ne gyimie nkoaa na aka Ghanafo?. The sad part is that, some of these same actors and industry players will go to these same politicians, take photos with them and splash them on social media just for comments and likes. My people, moagyimi kakra a ?y?!!! Let's rise up and change Ghana by force!!!
