Asiedu Nketia of NDC fame has for the first time revealed his other side since the demise of Nana Kwame Ampadu.
According to the cantankerous General Secretary of the NDC, he was also a top music promoter at some point in time in his life.
Asiedu Nketia disclosed this whilst expressing his shock over the death of Nana Ampadu. He described the deceased as a pillar of Ghana music whose contributions to the industry cannot be underrated.
Recounting Nana Ampadu’s early days as a musician, Asiedu Nketia disclosed that he once worked with the late Nana Ampadu as his music promoter.
He stated he worked closely with the deceased and had a relationship with him that dates back into the days. “As a music promoter, I worked with Nana Amapdu, Alex Konadu, Adofo, and other highlife legends in the country before I even came into active politics,” he said.
Speaking on Okay FM, he added that “Nana Ampadu also composed most of the NDC’s early campaign songs and our relationship continued even when he switched to NPP”.
On records, Nana Kwame Ampadu was pronounced dead on September 28, 2021, at the Legon Hospital in Accra where he was receiving treatment for an illness. He died at age 76.
