Video: Great Ampong Still Bitter Over GHȻ340,000 Album Launch Proceeds

Popular Adventist singer and song writer, Great Ampong, couldn’t hide his pain over his co-collaborator Daddy Lumba’s attitude over proceeds from their ‘Hosanna’ album launch in November 2015 at the Glorious Waves International Church which the High-life artist has kept all to himself after the launch.

Ampong who sounded very emotional on ATV’s Angels Corner program on Saturday disclosed he has still not received even Ghc1 out of the over GHȻ340,000 proceeds they made from the launch.

Speaking to the host, Ama Serwaa Boateng, he said Lumba has still refused to render account or give him any share of the raised sum.

“Lumba has told me personally that if he spends even Ghc1 of my money God should kill him. But since that encounter, he has not rendered any account to me or given me my share of the raised sum. We made GHȻ200,000 in cash at the launch and made GHȻ140,000 from the over twenty thousand copies of CDs sold.

So you sit at your homes and calculate for yourselves. And I still don’t know if he’s bringing me my share today or tomorrow”  Ampong revealed.

Ampong alleged that just before the launch was concluded Lumba instructed Atinka FM’s Roman Father to buy a ‘Ghana Must Go’ bag which he brought and stashed the realised funds and drove away with it.

He said budget for the launch will not even cost them GHȻ4000 which Lumba did not contribute anything.

“I wrote all the songs and directed the arrangements in the studio.

I went ahead to personally invite all personalities and dignitaries to the launch. He did nothing yet won’t render account or give me any share of the raised sum. There’s a lot I don’t want to disclose because of the pain in me,” he said.
