The Minister of Communications, Ursula Owusu has replied to Captain Smart’s allegation that musicians who performed at the recent COVID-19 Virtual Concert were paid.
In a post sighted by Zionfelix.net, the Communications Minister insisted none of the artistes was paid to perform.
Captain Smart, who plies his trade with Accra-based Adom FM, also invoked curses on anyone who would use the COVID-19 outbreak as an opportunity to make illicit money.
“Today, I want to tell you something. I’ve been asked to hold my bomb on this issue, but there’s only one thing I want to tell you. Never try to rich yourselves with coronavirus pandemic. Why is the minister lying to Ghanaians and the artistes also denying receiving the money? God will punish you, and your punishment won’t be mild, you’ll suffer extremely,” he fumed.
In her rebuttal, Madam Ursula Owusu said Captain Smart’s curse will be on his head and that of his family.
She questioned what the Adom FM presenter ate, drunk or smoke before making such utterances.
She wrote on Facebook: “Someone should please tell Captain Smart that I return his curses on me to sender. He and his family will suffer, not me. I don’t lie and for those who find it hard to believe or are hard of hearing, let me repeat it again. GOVERNMENT OF GHANA DID NOT PAY A PESEWA TO ANYONE FOR EITHER THE COVID 19 TRACkER APP OR THE VIRTUAL CONCERT TO LAUNCH IT.
I don’t know what he ate, drank or smoked but I have not received any money from anyone for this or been given any invoice to pay. There is no nokofio on my watch. Chew on it.
“By the way, the app has been approved for download on both the App Store and play store. Apple device users can now download it, answer the simple questions and provide their addresses and phone numbers to help the Ghana Health Service track, trace, test and treat suspected cases of Covid 19 expeditiously with digital technology. IT IS DIGITIME IN GHANA AND TIME FOR DIGICARE!!”
