Kwame Asare Obeng, known in showbiz and political circles as A-Plus, has slammed Ashanti Youth groups threatening to close down churches founded by Bishop Dag Heward-Mills for his comments about the Asantehene.
In a video posted on Twitter, A-Plus questioned the stance of the groups when there are a lot of pressing issues facing the people of the Ashanti Region.
"The roads in your region are terrible, but you won't organize a press conference telling the government to fix it. How about telling the government that Kumasi is the place where gold is mined, but our roads aren't good. That doesn't concern you?" stated Obeng.
Last week, there was an audio leak of Heward-Mills, the founder of Lighthouse Chapel International, describing Otumfuo Nana Osei Tutu II as a 'useless' king for not leaving any legacy except the celebration of funerals and anniversaries.
He has since apologised, claiming that he made the statements some 20 years ago, and regrets what was said. The youth groups held a press conference after the apology, and A Plus commented on that.

In other news, Stonebwoy has expressed his anger at what he calls excuses by the leadership in charge of music organizations in Ghana.
In a tweet less than a day after the first Ghana Music Awards National Music Summit ended, he called out executives of these institutions. He added that he and other artistes are tired of the reasons given for the state of the industry.
In response to Stonebwoy's tweet, someone suggested that the organizations in question - Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO) and the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) be dissolved.
