Ghanaian music executive and investor, John Mensah Sarpong has accused popular gospel singer, Kwaku Gyasi of cheating him after they made a bumper harvest with his song ‘Nyame Aseda’.
Speaking to Onua FM in an interview, John Mensah Sarpong described Kwaku Gyasi a cheat and vowed never to work with him again until he divorces his wife.
He accused Kwaku Gyasi’s wife of masterminding the brawl that ruined his relationship with Kwaku Gyasi when their relationship was smooth.
“We had been working effectively, efficiently, and profitably together for years before Kwaku Gyasi got married. Things between Kwaku Gyasi and I began to deteriorate shortly after our marriage. So there is no doubt that the wife is to blame.
“As long as Kwaku Gyasi is married to the wife. I’m not going to be able to work with him,” he added.
In the same interview, John Mensah revealed that he decided to quit working with Kwaku Gyasi when he pocketed all the MTN ambassadorial money for his music Nyame Aseda.
According to him, he agreed with Kwaku Gyasi on a production split of 30% and 70% for Kwaku Gyasi on all programs. The gospel musician was then chosen as MTN’s ambassador using his (John Mensah)production track Nyame Aseda. He expected him to follow the terms of the agreement. Mr Gyasi, on the other hand, refused to give him his share.
“I was enraged by Kwaku Gyasi’s behaviour because the musician did not follow through on the agreed-upon percentages of 30% and 70%. Mr Gyasi deviously pocketed the entire MTN deal’s proceeds.”
