Ben Brako to sue Ambolley, Media General over MUSIGA money allegations
Veteran Highlife musician, Ben Brako, has asked Gyedu Blay Ambolley to either retract a ‘defamatory comment’ he made about him and apologize or face him in court.
Mr. Brako is the second person declaring an intention to sue Ambolley after Okyeame Kwame.
He served the notice through his lawyers Dr. Ekow Daniels & CO of the Jan Chambers firm on March 3, 2020.
This comes on the back of a recent interview Ambolley granted on 3FM, stating categorically that he has evidence that former President of Musician Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) Bice ‘Obour’ Osei Kuffuor gave him (Ben Brako), Okyeame Kwame and other friends of his, GH¢50,000 each from the GH¢2M fiscal budget money which was given to the union the government in 2012.
Mr. Brako who took to his social media handles to put out a statement addressed to Ambolley said the claim was false and a dent on his hard-earned reputation.
He also demanded an immediate seizure to the circulation of that particular interview Media General Limited as failure to do so will attract a lawsuit.
“I am also asking my Solicitors to write to Media General Ghana Limited, since 3FM happens to be one of their outlets, to demand that they stop further publication of this interview,” the statement read.
