Popular comic actor, Mr. Beautiful, has descended on former President John Agyekum Kufour, accusing him of collapsing Concert Party.
Mr. Beautiful says the NPP led by Kufour frustrated the system and ensured that the formerly cherished Akan stage play was collapsed.
Mr. Beautiful was reportedly speaking in an interview according to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Ghanacelebrities.com.
According to him, Kufour employed the late Eva Lokko, who was also the running mate for the Progressive People’s Party (NPP)’s Papa Kwesi Ndoum, as the CEO of GBC.
Eva Lokko, at the orders of Kufour, increased the advertising and sponsorship rate of Concert Party which was then aired by GBC.
This, Mr. Beautiful complained, frustrated the main sponsor of Concert Party, Key Soap, that it backed off the sponsorship bringing Concert Party to a close.
Mr. Beautiful lauded former President Jerry John Rawlings, a former president of the NDC, for his role in promoting Concert Party.
He said Rawlings contributed to the building of the National Theatre which was of great benefit for Ghana.
Meanwhile, Mr. Beautiful has sworn to ensure that Mahama wins the 2020 election. He disclosed how he would be doing this, in an earlier report by YEN.com.gh.
He also revealed how former president Mahama has supported veteran actors and actresses, making him fit to take over Ghana’s presidency again.
