Popular Ghanaian gospel musician Isaiah Kwadwo Ampong, popularly known as Great Ampong has revealed the invaluable amount of assistance offered him by the late former General Secretary of the NPP, Sir John.
The Akokofunu hitmaker who was present at the one-week celebration of the late politician revealed he had recorded a tribute song which was yet to be released to celebrate the life of the man who was not only of great support but a church member as well.
Referring to the late lawyer and politician as an uncle, Great Ampong revealed that Sir John gave him the largest sum of money he has ever seen in his life.
“I was very close to my uncle (as I called him). Not just that, he was also my church member. He promised to take care of me just when he was appointed to the forestry commission so I was almost there all the time and the workers there can attest to that. Throughout my life, my uncle (Sir John) is the individual to have ever gifted me the largest sum to work with,” he said.
Lawyer and politician, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, popularly known as Sir John passed away on 1st July 2020 after a short illness. Until his unfortunate demise, he was the CEO of the Forestry Commission.
