Credible information available to GhanaGist.Com indicates that, Kofi Boakye Yiadom known in music circles as Kofi B is currently in Police custody.
He was picked up by the Police today, Wednesday 21 May, 2014 after the current interim Chairman of GHAMRO, Carlos Sakyi made a report that, he (Kofi B) had threatened him on radio.
The Bantama Kwasi Boakye hitmaker told Adom FM on Saturday that the leadership GHAMRO should render accounts of every penny they have collected on behalf of musicians and step aside for fresh elections as their leadership was even operating illegally after their two year term in office expired some months ago.
“They should resign from that position or else, we would beat them but of course they need to account for any pessewa before they resign. You can’t sit in the offices and allocate any amount of money for yourselves as allowances. When was the last time Carlos Sakyi and his people released musical materials? You sit there and eat from our sweat.”
“The last time I went there for a letter, I was charged a hundred cedis before given an introduction and I swear they will account for every pessewa”.
Kofi B has been held at the Central Police Station from 1pm. MUSIGA lawyer Joseph Konadu is trying to arrange for bail for him.
