The atmosphere in the studios of Atinka FM on Monday was a shimmering one as Managing Editor of then Insight Newspaper, Mr. Kwesi Pratt clashed with controversial musician A’ Plus over his new political song, “ Aben b3 b)m”
In the song, which has so far enjoyed massive ‘downloads,’ A Plus accused the NDC of massive corruption and that the day of reckoning awaits them.
He pointed to several high profile corruption cases to justify his attack on the current government.
Sacked Deputy Communication Minister, Victoria Hammah, Kofi Adams, Asiedu Nketia, Elvis Afriyie Ankrah, Deputy Education Minister, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa were all not spared in the hard-hitting track.
However, speaking on Atinka FM Monday, Kwesi Pratt held the view that greater content of the hit track is based on rumours and hearsay and not facts .
He opined that if the words the musician used to describe some members were used against him, he wouldn’t be happy so he [A’ Plus ] should think about the reaction he would get if he was in the same position as the named politicians in his songs.
In a quick reaction, A’ Plus said his music seeks to mirror the ills of society and that he has made songs against the NPP during President Kufuor’s regime. He said most members of the then NDC hailed him when he made those songs .
A Plus added that most of the things he said in the song were revealed to him by some high-ranking members of the governing NDC.
