Nana Quame, one of the smooth vocalists the music landscape in Ghana has ever seen, has spilled his feelings out in an emotional interview on a Facebook platform called TV Me.
The Hiplife star who reigned during the time Hiplife was more vibrant, said Kontihene, Abeiku Santana and other Ghanaian musicians he helped back in the days betrayed him big time. In his voice, Nana Quame said it was through him that the aforementioned Ghanaian celebs acquired visas to the States for the first time but they badmouthed him to the embassy later which caused him a great deal of inconvenience.
“Slim, today I will mention some names to you. Kontihene, Abeiku Santana, Nana Baty, 4X4, and some few other Ghanaian artistes I can’t really remember their names all got their American visas through me without attending interviews.
They got American visa with no interviews. Do you know what happened? These same colleagues, some of them it got to a time when my visa expired and I was getting ready to renew my visa, the consular that used to help me in acquiring my visa advised that I shouldn’t put in my application and that the embassy was going to refuse me. He went on to tell me that if the embassy refuses me the visa, they will ban me as well. So I was like why will the embassy refuse me visa and ban me? For what? Because I had money in my account. I am okay. So what is happening?
That was when the consular revealed to me that one of my colleagues had written a letter to the embassy against me. And that the embassy had found out that the people I traveled with back then did not return and the embassy is holding that against me. So I shouldn’t apply because if I do, they will refuse me. I couldn’t do anything so I took my passport and returned home.
According to the singer, if he didn’t have another opportunity to come to the UK, he would have been stuck in Ghana forever and couldn’t travel again.
“The person sold me out. So imagine if I didn’t have another opportunity to come to UK, I would have been stuck in Ghana struggling, suffering. You see when I am talking, someone won’t understand where I am coming from. Some people don’t understand your pain. This wasn’t even my deal and none of them knew how I got that deal. Not even Abeiku Santana.
When these people got to America, they destroyed and separated me from the consular to the extent that at a point, this consular didn’t even want to see me face to face. The consular sometime ago got fired from the embassy because of a problem that involved my helping of these same guys. Today as I speak to you this consular is really struggling. What he will eat is even a problem. Yet all of these guys have neglected him. So I don’t just talk. When I am talking, then I know what I am saying. Sometimes I don’t even know where to start and where to end. Some of our people are evil” he lamented.
