Actress and gospel musician, Mercy Asiedu has threatened to curse persons who claim she has taken money to campaign for the ruling government ahead of this year’s general election.
The actress in an interview on Kessben FM in Kumasi denied the allegation that she had taken cash from NDC government. “People just want to give me a problem that is why they have created this false story.
I want those spreading the falsehood to understand that I’m Ghana’s property so I don’t want to affiliate myself with any political party. All I know is serving Ghanaians, the Kumawood actress said.
“Whoever Ghanaians choose as their president is also my father. Nobody has called to give me money,” she added. According to her, the fact that Minister for Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, Mrs. Elizabeth Ofosu-Agyare calls her often for discussion about the industry does not mean she has thrown her weight behind NDC.
She told DJ Roar on the Kumasi-based radio station that the minister called her to organise a programme for them and also think about how best they can help develop the industry. “She called me to say she wants to meet people in the creative arts industry so I organised this meeting for her. Nobody gave me money for that.
“Since nobody has decided to give me money, I’ve also not decided to approach anyone for money,” Mercy Asiedu added.
Peeved Mercy Asiedu challenged anyone who has seen her receiving money from NDC to come out with facts.
“Whoever has seen me taking money from anywhere should come out to say it. Why do you like disgracing people? That is why people do not stop cursing. I will curse anyone who continues to spread this falsehood,” she added.
