Some aggrieved customers of Menzgold Ghana Limited have revealed that they were assured by dancehall artiste Stonebwoy that their investments were safe.
According to them, they were relaxed because the singer convinced them that they would soon get the monies back.
On Tuesday, 27 November 2018, some angry customers of the gold dealership firm took to the streets to demonstrate against the gold dealership firm.
Hundreds of the protestants marched through the principal street of Accra starting from the Obra Spot and ending at the Accra Hearts of Oak Park.
This follows months of failure on the side of Menzgold to refund their investments to them, despite several assurances.
“I remember Stonebwoy promised us that our money was safe,” one of the protestants is quoted as saying by Classfmonline.
He also criticised musician Becca and other ambassadors of Menzgold for keeping quiet about the plight of the customers whose investments have been locked up.
Stonebowy, who is a signee of Zylofon Media, is on record to have assured customers that their investments were safe.
Recently speaking on the subject, the “Top skanka” hit maker urged customers to remain calm, insisting the operations of Menzgold will soon return to normalcy.
“I urge all members of Menzgold to keep calm and take it easy because the situation is under control and your gold deposits are safe and secure,” Stonebwoy said.
Menzgold has been in the news in recent months following disagreements with the Bank of Ghana (BoG) regarding its operations.
The latest development is the order from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to have the company shut down its gold trading activities.
Consequently, the company has halted its collectibles and all other new businesses related to its gold vault market, albeit temporarily.
Meanwhile, the demonstrating customers have pleaded with the government to intervene to get Menzgold to refund their investment.
