I am now a freeman after weeping at my 46th Birthday - Kwasi Ernest

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Media Excel Production, Kwasi Ernest has said, for him to go to the level and break down in tears during his 46th birthday celebration, wasn’t a prepared act but a moment he shed tears after 18 years of misery he had suffered.

Speaking to Agyemang Prempeh on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, the former manager of gospel act, Joyce Blessing, said he is a very strong man and will not easily breakdown however, whatever happened that day had no intention to get people to support him financially or assist him in any shape or form.

Some media personalities, musicians and entertainment critics organized a surprised birthday for the manager at his office where he [Kwasi Ernest] broke down in tears and expressed disappointment in some musicians he had helped but never showed gratitude to him.

“I’ve given too much for humanity but I’ve gotten nothing in return. I made sacrifices for my musicians but I’ll end up becoming the bad person. I want to give up…It is not my fault; I want to make them happy. I’m not a bad person” Kwasi Ernest said when crying.

A video of the incident was uploaded on social media but was subsequently removed at the request of the renowned manager who described the ceremony as a private one adding ‘’ I did not invite any journalist to come and film it.’’

He revealed to the host that the one who filmed the incident called and apologised for uploading the video on social media which he did for fun.

‘’It was just a surprise thing that just happened and it made me emotional…It was a private gathering in my office. I didn’t invite any media person to come and film me and put it on social media…The person called and apologised to me. It tells me the respect he has for my personal life and regretted doing that. I spoke to him that I have a family and it was not something I wanted to keep on social media.’’

Kwasi Ernest told the host, I was relieved after weeping and further disputed claims that he shed tears because Joyce Blessing left his camp.

When asked if the musicians who had left his camp made him cry, he said, I beg to differ, that was not the reason.

According to him, there could be lack of proper communication between managers and musicians which they [managers] have not been able to identify.

‘’That cry had set me free. It has really healed my soul and heart as a person. It came from my inner self. It was my climax and difficulties I have gone through. I am no longer burdened. I am a freeman now,’’ he said.

When asked if he will stop music production, he said, my passion will not let me and I will continue to do what God has mandated me to do but will do things differently.’’
