Award-winning Ghanaian actress, Lydia Forson adds her voice to the Menzgold saga. She stated that affiliated politicians and celebrities with the MenzGold brand should be blamed for the customers woes.
Moreover, according to Ms Forson, these celebrities and politicians made MenzGold look attractive to the customers. Therefore, they invested in the scheme.
“Here’s the thing, Menzgold ran a pretty good media campaign. High profile celebrities endorsed the company. The CEO rubbed shoulders with some of the most important people, including politicians in the country. Did any of these people have suspicions about the company? I’m sure they did.”
Also, she stressed that customers should not be blamed because they refused to heed to advice from the Bank of Ghana.
“There are so many stories surrounding this issue that I wouldn’t even know where to begin; however I’ve seen so many people blame the victims of this investment for being greedy and not heeding to BoG’s warnings, and that’s what I want to address.”
Becca, Stonebwoy, Shatta Wale, Kumi Guitar, Joyce Blessing, Zynel Zuh, James Gardiner and Benedicta Gafah were on Zylofon Media. Zylofon was one of the many affiliations of the MenzGold Brand. Also, they used their platform to advertise for the brand.
Others who endorsed MenzGold and their dealings also include Joselyn Dumas, Okyeame Kwame, Sarkodie, Jackie Appiah, among others.
