YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a section of Ghanaians, including dancehall act, Stonebwoy, have backed Menzgold Ghana following the company’s standoff with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
The latest Ghanaian celebrity to join the fray is award-winning musician, Okyeame Kwame, known in real life as Kwame Nsiah-Apau.
The 'Faithful' singer took to his Instagram account to advice Ghanaians to stay calm on the matter at hand and exercise restraint.
He shared a copy of the Press Release coming from the quarters of Menzgold Ghana and captioned it, "Pls Read. Sometimes there are challenges in business but we need the patience of the customers and clients to walk with us in such times. I urge u to stay calm. Thank you."
His post adds to the growing number of of messages flooding social media coming from concerned Ghanaians over the turn of events.
Menzgold has been in the news in recent weeks following disagreements with the Bank of Ghana (BoG) regarding its operations.
The engagements of the gold hub and the central bank of Ghana has left much to be desired since it appeared there was no end in sight to their differences.
But the issue took another twist on Wednesday September 12 when reports had it that a directive from SEC as moving for a shut down of Menzgold's trading activities.
The embattled company has, however, received full backing from a section of Ghanaians during these troubled times.
Zylofon Media signees Stonebwoy, actress Benedicta Gafah and a number of celebrities took to social media to send words of encouragement to Menzgold and pledged their support for the firm.
Stonebwoy took to Twitter and wrote, “I stand by Menzgold. Ghana must prosper. Menzgold Ghana is for Ghana, by a Ghanaian and benefits Ghanaians”.
Artiste manager at Zylofon Media, Bulldog, also had a word of advice to the government and called for a peaceful resolution to the matter.
Meanwhile, the management of Menzgold Ghana were earlier reluctant to shut down their trading activities despite the directive from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
The company, through its lawyers, argued that the directive to shut down or suspend its operations is untenable and therefore made the company unable to comply with the terms of SEC.
