Ghanaians should have hailed NAM 1 instead of crucifying him – Kumi Guitar


Zylofon Music signee Kumi Guitar born Nana Yaw Kumi says his boss Nana Appiah Mensah alias NAM 1 was not treated well by most Ghanaians at the time he wanted to uplift the image of the music industry in the country.

“If there is someone who is investing in our industry, we should have hailed him, Nana Appiah Mensah but you will see the same Ghanaian saying ill about him”. Kumi Guitar said this in a studio discussion on Kantannka TV monitored by

“People will actually sit on radio and be questioning where he got his money from when he heavily invested in the music industry; the same people of the industry criticized him baldly”, he lamented.

According to him, because Ghanaians did not receive NAM1 in good faith which eventually brought his downfall; other investors are no more attracted to come in to save the industry.

He further argued that due to the bad treatment Ghanaians gave Nana Appiah Mensah, other investors are scared and would not like to put their money in the industry.

Kumi Guitar in his discussion also accused some journalists saying all what they could do was to criticize the source of money of the CEO of the defunct gold dealership firm MenzGold of promoting what he wanted to do for the industry.
