The Menzgold saga will just not go away, having dominated the news headlines in the last three to four months.
The gold dealership firm has had to deal with a lot of trouble following disagreements with the Bank of Ghana (BoG) regarding its operations.
Currently, the company has been forced to halt its collectibles and all other new businesses related to its gold vault market.
This has led to a series of demonstrations by aggrieved customers, who have petitioned President Akufo-Addo to intervene.
Meanwhile, the CEO of Menzgold, Nana Appiah Mensah has been declared wanted after an Accra Circuit Court issued a warrant for his arrest, while the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) has also frozen his accounts.
In all this, there are some people that will be hit the hardest due to their relationship with the embattled Menzgold CEO.
Here are 5 Ghanaians affected by what is happening to NAM1
1. Kumi Guitar
Highlife artiste Kumi Guitar has openly stated that he has been affected by what is happening to Menzgold and its CEO.
The singer is one of the artiste’s signed onto Zylofon Music, also owned by Nana Appiah Mensah.
In a recent interview, he revealed that he has his money locked up at Menzgold and hoped that he will be able to retrieve it soon.
“Yes, I’m a victim of Menzgold but I still believe I will get my money,” Kumi Guitar told TV3.
2. Sammy Flex
Entertainment journalist and writer Samuel Atuobi Baah, popularly known as Sammy Flex, is also another person who is very likely to be hit hardest by NAM 1’s troubles.
The radio presenter is the host of Zylofon FM’s morning show, and is known to be very close to his boss.
Sammy Flex was often on trips with NAM 1 and was one of his most trusted lieutenants as he aimed to build an entertainment media empire.
Monetary-wise, Sammy Flex may not be affected that much because he owned his own newspaper – the Flex newspaper – before joining Zylofon.
But NAM 1 is a man he knows very well, and to see his boss going through this turmoil will surely affect him.
3. Black Rasta
Artiste and radio presenter Black Rasta is also one of very few Ghanaians who still have hope in Nana Appiah Mensah.
This is because NAM 1 has always been there for him in the last few years when almost everyone else had turned their back on him.
The reggae fanatic is also an employee at Zylofon FM, where he has his own programme that he hosts.
But with EOCO having begun confiscating NAM 1’s assets, it’s obvious that he will also be affected.
Artiste and Repertoire Manager at Zylofon Music, Bulldog, is also set to be massively affected by NAM 1’s troubles.
In a recent Facebook post, he urged NAM 1 to show up, insisting the Menzgld boss has not defrauded anybody.
“Show up, you will not be jailed. You did not defraud anybody,” he said, adding: “you have a good case, you were running your business until this present administration messed it up.”
At Zylofon Music, Bulldog has everything, including the support of his boss, but he could lose that now.
