Highlife legend Gyedu Blay Ambolley says he is not interested in working with fraudulent people.
Ambulley was one of the delegates who contested with the incumbent President of the Musician Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Bice Osei Kuffuor, popularly known as Obuor in the October 31, 2015 elections in Koforidua but lost.
The controversial musician is sure that the election was not free and fair and has therefore declared he cannot associate himself with the new administration.
He was reacting to reports that Obuor has invited him (Ambulley) and Appeitus, the other contestant, to work with him as executive members on his board.
“I have heard that through the air, but the bottom line is I don’t like working with somebody who acquires a position by crooked means.
“That does not sit right with me because everything, if properly done, is like sowing a good seed; it will bear a good fruit but I don’t see it here” he added.
He spoke in an exclusive interview with Hitz news on Hitz Fm for the first time after the elections.
When asked what he meant with his statement, the ‘Semegua’ man said “It is MUSIGA that selected the delegates to vote, it wasn’t a transparent thing for Appietus, myself and other contestants.
“So they choosing their own delegates signifies that they chose those ones that they think will vote for them” he claimed.
Obour secured 88 out of the 133 votes cast to retain his seat. Renowned sound engineer Appietus obtained 18 votes, while highlife legend Gyedu Blay Ambolley managed to secure 22 votes out of the total valid votes cast in the Koforidua Congress.
The after math of the election, saw Gyedu Blay threatening to challenge the results since he believe there was a cancer of ‘Mafiarism’ in the Musician Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) before and after the elections.
Ambulley explained: “If you want to talk about the constitution, it says that 10 delegated people must be selected from each region, Accra chose 30, Kumasi chose 20 and that flouts the (MUSIGA) constitution. This and many other reasons are part of the things I am discussing with my lawyers”.
He claims some workers at MUSIGA who are not musicians were allowed to vote.
