Veteran highlife star Akosua Agyapong has come out to emphatically deny news floating around that she defrauded a businessman in a land deal to the tune of Ghc 105,000.
In a statement released through her lawyers, Agyapong admits knowledge of the deal, but said none of the money was paid to her and that the land was sold legitimately to the businessman.
A court case against Agyapong and an associate, Frank Agyemang, allege that the two conspired to defraud a man who wanted to buy some land from them for business.
The case was called in court this week, and Agyemang was granted bail whilst the musician was not present.
But she has issued a swift statement to defend herself against the allegations, attempting to explain exactly what went down in the deal.
Read statement below…
“Akosua Adjepong takes a firm stand in denying the fraud allegation reported by Graphic Online Ghana news: Akosua Agyapong in court for Ghc 105,000 fraud – Graphic Online on Tuesday, October 10, 2017.
She states emphatically, that albeit there had been a land transaction, she never defrauded Jonas Asamoah who claims to have been swindled. Every dime paid for the price of the land was made directly to Frank Agyemang, the land owner to whom Jonas Asamoah was introduced, in February 2017.
The management of the musician understands that late March this year, she travelled to the US and returned late April as well as travelled to Canada in late May and returned in late June. This is to clarify that, at some point(s), she was not present or in the country when some payments relating to the purchase of the land was made.
There are witnesses as well as paper trails that proves her absence from the country in the said time frames above. Jonas Asamoah who had made just a part payment of the land and was given two (2) land documents out of four (4), fenced it (the land) to proclaim his ownership over it. Jonas was not given all the four (4) land documents but two (2) on the account of making a part payment – which is reasonable. He was made to understand that the remaining two (2) would be added when payment for the land was complete.
The accuser, after some time, demanded all four (4) land documents. Undisclosed source(s) had revealed he had sold the land to another and needed all the land documents in order to hand it over to his buyer (the man to whom the accuser had sold the land). His(Jonas’) request for the remaining two (2) land documents was declined and he proposed to trade his Toyota RAV 4 for the outstanding (the remaining payment of the land).
Since Jonas Asamoah had already made a part payment of the land and added his Toyota RAV 4 in order to pay the outstanding land fee, the maths had to be made in order for him to be balanced by Frank Agyemang. After some time, when Jonas had traded his car for the outstanding land fee, he came back, saying he did not like the last part of the transaction and demanded his Toyota RAV 4.
Frank Agyemang knowing he had to return the car, did return it, and as this news release is being written, the car has been handed over to the police. The management of Akosua Adjepong takes this opportunity to tell the media, the musician’s fans and the general public, that she will not and has not defrauded Jonas Asamoah, who has had Graphic Online to write a false news story about her.
Akosua Adjepong, who has been in the music scene for twenty-seven (27) years and still counting, did not come this far just to say she made it this far. She will fight for her reputation and for justice.”
