The family of Ghana’s legendary highlife musician, C.K Mann, has refuted media reports that the 78-year old is in critical condition requiring financial assistance for medical care.
Describing the reports as ‘distasteful’, Anthony Mann, son of C.K. Mann, said they were considering a legal action against a Ghanaian entertainment website where the story emanated from.
The story claimed the ‘Adjoa Yankey’ hit maker who is currently in Takoradi was dying slowly of a terrible ailment.
It further suggested that the maestro could not afford a square meal and his medical bills, hence launched an appeal for funds to support the man whose musical career spanned 40 years.
‘At no point has the musician or his family sought financial assistance to cater for medical bills and his (C.K. Mann) upkeep,’ a statement issued by the family in Accra last Friday said.
However, reacting to the story, the son who speaks for the family said, ‘Our family is capable of taking care of our father who was on February 13 admitted in a hospital in Takoradi and discharged a week later.’
