In every rumour, there is an iota of truth as it is often said. It was reported that drama unfolded at highlife artiste Kwabena Kwabena’s 5th album launch of which made waves and trended on almost every blog in Ghana.
Even though there could be an iota of truth in the whole drama but the manager and alleged girlfriend of Kwabena Kwabena, Frema Ashkar, responding to the issue has debunked reports that the artiste was presented with a court summon by his ex-wife during the launch of his 5th album.
Frema Ashkar did not only deny the report but also accused Ghanaian bloggers of publishing false reports about the highlife artiste and threatened to ‘slap’ the said blogger or bloggers who reported the story with a lawsuit. She added that bloggers have over the years tried to paint a negative picture of Kwabena Kwabena to the public of which wouldn’t work this time around.
Below is the unedited response of Frema Ashkar in an interview with Reagan Mends of razzonline;
“Have seen some report going round from Zionfelix that there was tension at the launch and some police came there with Kwabena Kwabena 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 no this.
I didn’t see a Policeman at the launch… nobody saw it …there were alot of bloggers at the event including you Reagan, Sammy K, Miss Gee, Konkonsa. 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.
Frema continued,”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.. most of the time am drag in and it is time that people need to really prove their report.
it cannot be going on like this that anytime there is a concert somebody have a problem and will just walk to a blogger and the blogger will just get up and do the report, there are two bloggers in this country who are fond of that …and I think we need to address this issue Once and for all…I must put it on record that some action as management must be taken to end these things…for me what I can deduce from it is it appears this story was cooked…you (Razzonline) were there you’ve done your beautiful story …who ever is behind this…this is a clear case of defamation…
I am a journalist and when I see something like this I deem it quite unfortunate … who ever is behind this, we will all meet at the appropriate corners and we will resolve it orderly.. we do not believe in fighting…as long as the launch was concern nothing of that sort happened it is unfortunate that a journalist will do something like this just to divert attention…we have our beautiful album out our …preparing for the video…now if a young man is working hard and has brought the only highlife album currently why would you want to destroy his hardwork?.am sure Ghanaians are even tired of all these issues…for us vitamilk has bought our album of Ghc10,000.00… many influential people were there…we will be having our tour soon….nothing can destruct us…this is one journalist who has allowed himself to be used as an instrument to carry out somebody mischief..it’s unfortunate that zionfelix should allow himself to be used for such a cheap job”, Frema lamented.
