The embattled CEO of Menzgold, Nana Appaih Mensah aka NAM1 is reported to have given award-wnning rapper, Sarkodie, a whopping $50,000 just because the rapper attended NAM1’s birthday last year.
NAM1 held a lavish 34th birthday party on May 16, 2018, with Zylofon stars and many other stars in attendance.
One of the stars that was present at the party was Sarkodie and it looks like the ‘Highest’ rapper seemed to have been handsomely rewarded for his appearance if latest rumours on social media are anything to go by.
There had been a lot of bashing directed at actors and artistes signed onto the Zylofon Media label with many blaming NAM1 of wasting Menzgold customers’ deposits on them.
But according to a post by an Instagram blog, @itellmymind, though Sarkodie was never signed onto the Zylofon label, he also enjoyed the largesse of NAM1 with the $50,000 ‘birthday appearance gift’ being of the many benefits he got.
Sarkodie, the post further claimed , was also given an undisclosed amount of money for his wedding to Tracy in July, 2018.
Apart from that, Sarkodie was reportedly being given an amount of GHC30,000 anytime he visited NAM1 at the Zylofon office.
” @sarkodie Was never signed by both Menzgold and Zylofon but somehow he benefited a lot. First he received 50,000 dollars as a thank you from NAM1 for just attending the birthday party of NAM1. He also got an undisclosed amount of money during his marriage ceremony. Whenever he visited NAM1 he received 30,000ghc etc.
Menzgold customers, your monies were being given away by heart by heart @itellmymind2 Unless you don’t get in contact small with NAM1,” the post read.
Wile YEN.com.gh cannot readily verify any of the claims made by the blogger, it must be noted that Sarkodie and NAM1 enjoyed a very brotherly relationship as their photos suggested.
Even at the start of Bank of Ghana’s (BoG) clamp down on Menzgold’s activities, Sarkodie’s wife, then freshly married, .
Turning herself into a spokesperson for the outfit, Tracy Sarkcess, while commenting on a BoG directive told the bank to leave Menzgold alone and .
But her comments seems to have landed her in trouble as many Ghanaians have found them inappropriate as many thought Tracy was not competent enough in the field she was delving into.
