Zylofon Media boss Nana Appiah Mensah in an Instagram post has hit back heavily at Multimedia Journalist and Anchor Isreal Laryea for allegedly smearing palpable falsehood and also championing a campaign Nana Appiah Mensah terms as more than an “evil smear” agenda.
In a post sighted by SwagofAfrica.news he stated
” Hello Isreal Laryea, today I celebrate your stupidity and retarded mindedness. Set up a provision store today in a kiosk and employ just one Ghanaian. This is more than the pursuit of this evil smear campaign agenda. Maybe you need to be reminded, I am a businessman and not a politician. You can’t break me! Business is not a thing for the pope. Think about it. God bless you. ”
The comments made by the Menzgold owner within a few minutes has received a of public attention and backlash comments from social media.
This comes at the back of a news story JoyNews Editor, Israel Laryea on a recent trip to the United Kingdom (UK) took advantage of his visit to report on the operations of Menzgold in the country as it has become the subject for discussion on all media platforms.
According to the report, Menzgold UK does not operate the same business model it does in Ghana which landed them into troubles with various state institutions including the Security and Exchanges Commission.
The report added that, Menzgold rents a small space in the massive Berkeley Square House block in Mayfair which houses about a thousand or more businesses, mostly seeking short term leases.
In a Video shared on Facebook, the JoyNews editor reported that only two Ghanaian ladies were in the office at the time of his visit with no Menzgold signage nor any activities as it is in Ghana.While some social media commentators applaud JoyNews for the step taken in providing an in-depth report on the ongoing Menzgold saga, a greater number of social media users have expressed disappointment at the extent JoyNews have taken its Menzgold reportage.
Some are of the view that JoyNews seeks the downfall of the embattled businessman Nana Appiah Mensah.
Many others described it as “a poor work done”.
London Mayfair is noted for its virtual addresses. One can easily obtain a Mayfair address, get a receptionist, and run a business from the UK without even stepping foot in the country. Menzgold changing address from Croydon to Mayfair might have prompted JoyNews to look into the activities of the gold dealer in the UK.
Several comments sighted on Instagram minutes after the post of Nana Appiah Mensah indicate that Menzgold upon everything that has transpired has still got the backings of most Ghanaians. Or what do you think?
From the look of things, the entire Menzgold brouhaha doesn’t seem like ending soon but for sure, we will keep you updated on any development.
