Hiplife and Afro-pop Ghanaian artiste, Okyeame Kwame has said he was a mere brand Ambassador for discredited gold trading hub Menzgold, and has denied claims he invested in it, has filed.

He was speaking on Luv FM Drive Time with host DJ Reuben.

There were rife reports that he invested GH¢150,000 into Menzgold as an ambassador and was also troubled.

But the ‘Rap Doctor’ said it was not true.

The multiple-award-winning singer is one of the popular Ghanaian celebrities who openly endorsed Nana Appiah Mensah (NAM 1) and his business empire.

A giant Menzgold billboard on the Oforikrom-Asokwa highway, depicts the ‘Made in Ghana’ hitmaker holding a piece of gold advertising the company’s business.

In response to a question by DJ Reuben on whether he regrets endorsing Menzgold in view of current developments, Okyeame Kwame indicated he would speak to those issues later when “tempers are down”.

“As we all know, the matter is under investigation and I wouldn’t want to comment and pre-empt to complicate the work of the police. So I would rather want the dust to settle and wouldn’t want to jump the gun, but will certainly respond in due time,” he stated.

“The Menzgold issue is a very sensitive one, and as it stands, lots of processes are underway to unravel the facts and truth around this whole issue, so let’s leave it as it is,” Okyeame Kwame insisted.
