Discussion has started on Don Moen coming to Ghana to perform at the gospel concert organised as part of this year’s Ghana @ 60 celebration.
Zionfelix.net gathers that most celebrities who endorsed and campaigned for the ruling party ahead of the 2016 general election are not happy about the news. To them, Ghana has several gospel musicians who can substitute the American so they see no reason in flying Don Moen to Ghana for the concert.
Actor and TV presenter, Leo Mensah popularly called Ntotoahene who actively campaigned for NPP before last year’s election in a facebook post expressed disgust about the 66-year-old coming to Ghana for the event. To him, this decision to allow the American singer-songwriter perform at the show will make 2020 election difficult for NPP to win.
Mr. Mensah wrote “Dear PREZ NANA ADDO,
PLEASE DON’T ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN. America will never pick any African Gospel Artiste to headline their programme even if that person just came from heaven. Why #DONMEON? Sonnie Badu, Cwesi Oteng and Pastor Brian Jones Amoateng can’t lead Ghana in worship? God needs a white man before he listens to Ghana?
Who is doing this, who is trying to make the next ELECTION difficult? If John Mahama went for CHRIS BROWN and we condemned it, choosing DON MEON over Ernest Opoku,Diana Asamoah and co is still bad today.
There is a reason African Act receive their Awards backstage at BET.
You can’t rekindle patriotism in the Citizens when your taste for Foreign goods is still on the ascendancy…
Yours Truly NTOATOAHENE”
Artiste manager and boss of Media Excel Production, Kwasi Ernest, a member of Creative Arts 4 Change is also angry about the plan of bringing Don Moen to Ghana for the event. Speaking on Hitz FM Wednesday morning, the furious manager spoke against the plan.
Jefferson Sackey, Chairman for media and publicity for Committee for Ghana @ 60 celebration has said in an interview that the coming of Don Moen is a private initiative and the cost is being handled by the private firm.
