Wear Shades, a Sunyani-based musician, has thrown his weight behind the former President of Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi, over his latest bribery scandal.
Mr Nyantakyi and several other football officials were captured in a recent documentary by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas titled ‘Number 12’ for allegedly accepting bribes from Anas’ Tiger Eye PI team.
The documentary raised a number of controversies before and after its premiere last week. Some Ghanaians supported Anas while others had issues with the methodology he used in capturing Nyantakyi and his cohorts.
Wear Shades told the News Hunter Magazine he is supporting Mr Nyantakyi because he has Ghana at heart, and he has released a new song to that effect titled ‘Enhyɛ Wobo’.
“Most Ghanaians would have done worse if they are to be in the shoes of Kwesi Nyantakyi. They are talking like that because it didn’t happen to them. We don’t need to use money to test someone. Even the Bible says the root of all evil is money. If Anas will use this same methodology to trap all Ghanaians then, the majority would fall victims. One thing in Ghana is that the law does not deal with rich people. I do not see anything wrong with what Kwesi Nyantakyi did. He has the country at heart,” he emphasized.
Wear Shades added, “Those who are lambasting Kwesi Nyantakyi wouldn’t do that if he is from their family.”
