Popular Ghanaian gospel singer, Great Ampong, has cried of neglect by the big men in NPP, and the music industry at large.
The musician who is currently battling poverty said he is really suffering and it is difficult for him to make ends meet.
Ampong explained that the big men refuse to answer his many calls to their phone, and when he moves to their offices too, they avoid him.
This was sighted by YEN.com.gh in a report by Graphic Showbiz.
He lamented also how he has been discriminated against in the musician industry, where prominence is given to secular musicians.
Great Ampong narrated how he attended an event with one secular musician and after their performances, the other musician was paid GHC50,000, while he got nothing.
He also disclosed releasing a song on coronavirus but even the money to pay the sound engineer, shoot videos, and promotions for the song is hard to come by.
"I have 16 albums to my credit but now I have nothing," Ampong sadly said.
As if being left by the NPP big men and industry is not enough, Great Ampong also said the church has sidelined him.
He believes the church has money, but refusing to invest in gospel musicians.
He called on all well-meaning Ghanaians to come to his aid.
Meanwhile, Ampong is not the only one crying of neglect after rendering a service for the NPP.
Recently, veteran actor Agya Koo also made a similar revelation when he opened up on how he has been treated after helping the NPP to come to power.
