Female broadcaster and manageress of multiple award-winning contemporary highlife musician Kwabena Kwabena, Frema Ashkar has debunked publication indicating that there was tension at Kwabena Kwabena’s Ahyesi album launch .
According to the report, the ex-wife of Kwabena Kwabena stormed the event ground+233 Jazz bar & Grill in Accra on Thursday, November 30 with police to summon him (Kwabena Kwabena) to court.
The publication added that the musician before November 30 had refused to accept the court summons on several occasions giving reasons that he did not marry at the court of law so sees no reason to appear before a judge if he wants to walk out of the union.
“Have seen some report going round that there was tension at the launch and some police came there with Kwabena Kwabena’s ex-wife and a whole lot of issues. First, nothing like that happened… we started around 8 pm, we had a fantastic show till about 1:00 am when we closed, nobody saw anything like that I am the head of Kwabena’s management team; if something like that had happened before, during or even after the show, I believe I would’ve been the first person to know this.
“I didn’t see a Policeman at the launch… there were many bloggers at the event. I did not understand why bloggers were calling me after the event asking me of the incident since they were present themselves to ask me where this was coming from especially from a blogger who was not at the event I think it is very very unfortunate that certain journalist will sit behind their desk and do story out or will not go and verify any hit or tip of what they have been given but they will just sit behind their desk and do report.
“These things have gone on for so many times. Anytime there’s going to be an event; things like this will pop up… Kwabena Kwabena has done this, that and most of the time am drag in and it is time that people need to really prove their report.” Frema told Razzonline.
