- Ernest Opoku has finally commented on a recent allegation leveled against him by an actress
- According to the musician, Ghanaians talk too much without evidence to back their claims
Award-winning local gospel act, Ernest Opoku, has finally spoken on rumors that he put a lady known as Nayas, in the family way and ‘bribed’ her with GHc 5,000 and 15 pieces of GTP cloth.
Speaking in an interview on Kumasi-based Abusua FM, the gospel artiste revealed that Ghanaians were quick to jump on hearsay to make it news when they knew full well that they did not have evidence to back their claims.
He said that many people were in the business of always trying to pull others down by making speculations and allegations all in the bid to tarnish their image.
He said even nowadays, pastors were noted for tarnishing the image of their fellow pastors by alleging that they had gone for ‘juju’ to run their churches.
Ernest Opoku said that the objective of these ‘unscrupulous’ people was borne out of envy and their desperation to become relevant.
In effect, he was saying that the allegations that had been leveled against him by Nayas, were all in a bid to tarnish his image.
He added that Ghanaians were quick to judge others and even though they did not have pictorial or video evidence to back the rumors they were spreading.
A couple of days ago, the local gospel scene in Ghana was rocked by a trending story about Ernest Opoku and an actress.
According to the story, the gospel act reportedly put the actress known as Nayas in the family way but fearing reproach from the general public, convinced the lady to have an abortion and promised to give her GHc 5,000 and some pieces of cloth.
The young lady, fearing for her safety, connived with the doctor and ‘lied’ about carrying out the abortion.
Nayas, after the story had gone viral on social media came out to make more claims and even went on to reveal that she thought Ernest Opoku was a ‘marriage material’ because he was a gospel artiste.
