Comedian DKB has jumped to the defence of Charterhouse PRO George Quaye over bribery allegations, saying that he can vouch for Quaye’s integrity.
DKB, in a rage over the accusations, told nkonkonsa.com that many times he has offered to give Quaye a share of his earnings after landing him gigs with Charterhouse, but every single time Quaye has turned him down.
According to the comedian, that proves Quaye is simply interested in doing his job and not taking money from artists.
“George Quaye on so many occasions has refused my appreciation or commission for giving me gigs at Charterhouse. Every time he gets me a show at Charterhouse, I try to show appreciation by taking a percentage of the money I am paid to say thank you but he never takes it.” DKB said.
“I try to send him mobile money, he refuses, I try seeing him in person to give him but he never takes. All he keeps saying is that he is only helping a cause and he is only helping our creative industry. George never takes anything from me all these years since I started performing on Charterhouse shows.”
He added: “This whole bribery thing is really making me angry because I know they are lies. They are just baseless lies that don’t have any solid backing. I have a solid backing with my personal encounter with George Quaye and I will defend him anywhere any day.”
According to DKB, the whole affair smells of a plan to tarnish the image of Quaye.
“For me, I feel they just want to damage his image because anybody who has dealt with him can attest to the fact that George is very strict when it comes to money.
“It is so hard dealing with George because he gives a gig and collect all they money and are trying to show appreciation, he will not take it. So how much more that same person would demand bribe? So please all these things they are saying, they are just lies, cooked lies because George Quaye has never take any appreciation from me, not to talk of bribe.”
Of course, DKB conveniently forgets that George Quaye started this entire saga with his big mouth, claiming on GhOne Tv that gospel artists pay bribes to win awards. When asked to substantiate his claims, he wilted and instead apologised.
