Sadiq Abdulai Reacts To Joselyn Dumas’ 3Music Awards Host Payment Wahala

Published

on

Chief Executive Officer of 3Music Awards, Sadiq Abdulai Abu has reacted to the tweet by Actress Joselyn Dumas claiming she has still not been paid for hosting the event that took place in April, 2018.

According to him, the several claims that emerged that he has blacklisted Joselyn Dumas was absolutely false. But he agreed on not paying her, which was not a deliberate act in any way.

“I was not in town, I was doing some work outside the country so on Monday one of my guys called me and asked me to reach out to Joselyn or one of the guys who is part of her management, because there is a perception that I have blocked her on Twitter, but that wasn’t the case. I was just not in town. So I called him and pleaded with him to give me some time since I just returned to the country and I just resumed work so I’d pay them.” He said on Zylofon FM.

Sadiq, said there have been loads of debt after the event and for the past three months, he and his crew have been considering how to pay these debts.

He also pleaded for not completing his side of the agreement with Joselyn Dumas and promised to pay her back very soon.

Sadiq is set to pay an amount not less than GHC10,000 to the Television and radio personality for her work done.

Actress Joselyn Duma took to Twitter yesterday, claiming that 3Music Awards has still not honored their end of the bargain after she undisputedly delivered nicely at the event. She also added that, working for them was not a pro-bono and therefore payment should be made as agreed.

She however expressed her bitter thoughts on how the Ghanaian entertainment industry makes it difficult for celebrities to support their own.

“Dear @3musicAwards when you hire the service of a talent and you agree on a payment, you honor your end of the bargain as I honored mine…. no one works for free”

EIB’s Acquisition Of GH One TV Forced Me Out – Blaque Boy Speaks After Years.

Published

on

Mr. Godfred Laryea, known on screens as Blaque Boy disappeared from our screens almost two years ago without a word, nor a sign of abandoning Rhythmz, a Television show he was hosting alongside Berla Mundi on GH 1 Tv.

For the first time after a long time, the darling boy of TV opens up about why he left the show, apologized to all the fans and promised a comeback soon.

Below is the full response provide by Blaque Boy to an open letter written him by FameBugs on his exit and why.

“Yes, yes, yes. I also finally get to be someone’s MCM, lol. I thought this day would never come. Thanks a lot, guys …. lol. The coffee sounds good, seat taken, now let’s get into that conversation. “Rhythmz” your world of music…… Oh boy, lol….. I would start by saying a big thank you to @charterhousegh for giving me the chance to host Rythmz. Taking over from Chris Attoh and Joselyn Dumas, those were some big shoes to fill, but I braced myself for the challenge.

I actually started hosting the show with Raquel, that’s for those who didn’t know. She had to let it go after a while though, to be able to totally focus on her music career. I then became the official host of the show.

From 12 noon to 2pm daily for years, “Rythmz” was my life. Dedication, passion, commitment, hard work and most importantly, the love and support from the viewers and fans, now that’s what kept me going daily… Along the line Berla Mundi joined as a co-host, I did my best to help her to be comfortable and help her on the show. Congratulations to her, she’s really done good for herself today and I wish her well.

Being on the show was fun, playing videos from all over Africa, interviewing both local and international artistes, as well as getting all the juicy information from the world of music for the viewers on a daily, they were fun times indeed. Out of nowhere, we were suddenly faced with the reality that the station was going to be sold to new management, which was Bola Ray with EIB.

This we knew would come with changes and challenges. The sale was made, management changed and my love affair with Rythmz came to an abrupt end.

This is the first time I am talking about this since I left Ghonetv a little over 2 years ago, so I want to humbly use this to officially apologize to everyone out there who loved me for what I did on television. I formed a lot of great relationships both formal and informal courtesy of my being on television, and for this, I’m entirely grateful.

I honestly would have loved to officially inform everyone that I was leaving “Rythmz” and GhOne as a whole, but complications at that time did not afford me the opportunity.

It all happened so quickly and that resulted in my sudden exit without any notice or explanation to viewers. Once again, I apologize to all the viewers and fans out there, I appreciate the love and support you guys showed during my time on television. It helped make my time on television a successful one, and also helped to shape who I am today.

I am profoundly grateful.

Yes, I am currently on Yfm but my love for television is still very much alive. Without a doubt, I would definitely make my way back on television, and when I do, I pray that we can side by side, mould another show into another “hit show”.

In the words of the “Terminator” “I’ll be back” lol. Until then, let’s keep the love. It’s your boy “Blaque Boy”. Thanks for tunning in. Till I catch you again, keep it safe and please don’t forget to holla at ur boy wherever you see me. It’s still loving.

Thanks for the coffee guys, really appreciate it.

Regards guys… Thanks again.
