Pan-Africanist, Musician and Radio Show Host, Blakk Rasta has said, he would be the happiest man on earth if his embattled CEO of Menzgold, Nana Appiah Mensah tells him, he cannot pay him [Blakk Rasta] even though he’s been granted bail.
According to the loyal employee of Nana Appiah Mensah, owner of Zylofon FM, Blakk Rasta said he wasn’t faking his love for his boss.
Speaking on Accra based Class FM monitored by GhanaNewsPage.com, the controversial reggae artist who has been advocating for NAM1’s return said, he would want to be the last person to meet boss because NAM1 has so many people to who desires his attention.
“I am the least person who would like to meet NAM1. Let him deal with the people, there are so many people who desires his attention. He has lawyers to pay. He has his family to meet, his family that he hasn’t seen for so long, let him please any other person. Let me be the last person NAM1 want to see”
Blakk Rasta further disclosed he cannot stand his joy if NAM1 decides not to pay him. All he wanted is Nana Appiah Mensah to be freed and dine with his Family and friends.
“Listen, if NAM1 comes today and tells me and say Blakk Rasta you know what, I know you work for 12 months but I can’t pay you now, I will be the happiest man; all I want is that he’s out.
When we started saying these things some people thought we were faking it, but that is how people has taken Blakk Rasta, either he’s a joker or somebody who has no brain but time after time I get exonerated”
The Bank of Ghana in August last year issued a public notice that Menzgold Ghana Limited is not licensed and has no authority to engage in the solicitation, receipt of money or investments and the payment of dividends or returns to its clients which is captured in Section 6 (1) of the Banks and Specialised Deposit-Taking Institutions Act, 2016 (Act 930).
It also hinted of impending sanctions, saying after several cautions to Menzgold, it has started discussions with relevant regulatory authorities to sanction them for breaching the law.
Though Menzgold called the bluff of the central bank, it was forced to shut down in September 2018 by the EC.
As part of the shutdown notice, the firm was ordered not to take new contracts (investments)
SEC claimed evaluation of Menzgold’s documentations show the company does not have the licences to trade in gold, and that, its operations are in breach of Act 929 “as well as a threat to unsuspecting and uninformed investors”.
The company has since been in tango with SEC as well as customers and investors who are demanding their returns and investments.
But when the issues appeared to have escalated due to pressure from the customers, Nana Appiah Mensah run to parliament with a petition to intervene so the company can resume operations and pay its customers.
The company pleaded with the House to particularly intervene in the impasse between it and the SEC, which the company claimed has caused delays in paying its customers interest on their investments.
The company claimed in the petition to the Finance Committee of Parliament that the complete shutdown of its gold collectible vault by SEC has “caused a lot of serious challenges for the company and its customers [both local and foreign]”.
Accordingly, the firm wants parliament to “intervene and help resolve this matter amicably”.
