Seems Mark Okraku Mantey, has more enemies than friends.
Ever since his name popped up as a possible nominee for the appointment of a deputy Tourism Minister, the current president of the Creative Arts industry, Mark Okraku Mantey has known no peace.
The latest to add his voice against his appointment is Edward Nana Poku a.k.a Hammer of the last two Fame branding him an “Arse Kisser” ever since he entered Politics.
He noted that Mark Okraku Mantey who was known for fighting for the interest of musician and individuals have changed ever since he joined the Political space.
In a post on his Facebook timeline, Hammer indicated wrote: “Mark wasn’t always like this, Mark has impacted my life personally as well… actually the one who literally held my hand and made me start my pension with SSNIT around 2006 was none other than Mark but politics has destroyed the fighter he was. I speak to Mark at least once or twice a month and I’ve come to notice that politics does something to [you]. [I]t replaces a fighter spirit with a kiss ass spirit. As long as it’s political, Mark will not bleed for the industry. We don’t need that ministry.”
Hammer explained his position further: “Last year, we went to Mark’s office to get him to help put Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO) in order…he had no clue that the GHAMRO regime had even surpassed its tenure and were running illegalities. He was clearly out of touch… He made no attempt to get involved as he didn’t want to dirty himself…he, however, advised that we keep pushing…
We didn’t hear Mark taking them to the cleaners. How can u disregard orders from such an office and nothing happens to you? We needed people like Mark to stand and fight on our behalf but in recent times Mark has come to enjoy being in everyone’s good book. Mark just likes the safe zone for his political ambitions. Don’t get me wrong, Mark is far from a cheat or a greedy guy… as a matter of fact he’s a distinguished gentleman.”
Hammer’s comment follows a statement made shatta Wale that Mark Okraku Mantey cannot serve in the role of deputy minister of the Creative Arts Industry.
