I ONCED USED MY FATHER’S NAME TO GET OUT OF TROUBLE BUT IT DIDN’T WORK’ – Kennedy Agyapong Jr


Kennedy Agyapong Jr., the MP for Assin North’s son, recalled a time when he tried to get out of jail by using his father’s name but was unsuccessful.

One of the founding members of Afrochella, currently known as AfroFuture, is Kennedy Agyapong, the son of a member of parliament. He has explained how using his father’s name did not help him escape a problem he encountered.

“I remember when I first came to Ghana, in 2014, I was going back [to America] for holidays,” he told Andy Dosty on Accra-based Hitz FM, Tuesday, January 10, 2023. “I had a visa but I didn’t know when they stamp the visa it says ’60 Days’ but then you have to renew it.”

Kennedy Agyapong Jr thought because he had a five-year visa, he “could go [and] come,” as he pleased.

“So, this is the first time I used his [my father’s] name and it backfired,” he recalled and illustrated with a story at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA), Accra.

“I was at the airport and the Immigration Officer informed me that my visa had expired. I insisted it said five years but he showed me that the 60 days I had been given had elapsed,” he said.

He disclosed how he got angry and challenged the officer. According to him, for the first time, he used the phrase,  “Do you know who I am?”

When the officer did not budge, “I called Honourable [his politician father],” he demonstrated being on a phone call with his right hand.

“The officer said [to my father], ‘He overstayed’,” the 33-year-old Kencity Media Limited boss recalled. “I had been in Ghana for one year and there was a penalty and he [the officer] said, ‘It’s US$360, the penalty’.”

Kennedy jr stated that when his father spoke to the officer, he said, “Oh, let him pay the penalty.”

I was thinking he was going bail me out, but, no, no, no, he told me to pay,” he stressed.

“They took the [penalty] money and gave me a receipt and everything, and I was like, ‘Oh, man! It didn’t work,” he laughed.
