KOFI ABBAN EXPLAINS WHY HE DESCRIBED KOJO ANTWI A ‘COMPLETE JOKE’

Kofi Abban has clarified his remarks after Kojo Antwi was harshly criticized by him on social media for a Crowdfunding post he made earlier.

The well-known Ghanaian investor and businessman had attacked Kojo Antwi for creating a GoFundMe campaign with a staggering £1,000,000 goal in honor of his deceased father, who passed away on January 7, 2023.

A link to a GoFundMe account allegedly set up by the high-life musician was making the rounds on social media as funeral preparations were underway, drawing responses from internet users.

The fundraiser’s description box stated that the earnings will go toward supporting a scholarship program and a disability program for the less fortunate.

But, Mr. Kofi Abban strongly criticized Kojo Antwi for what he claimed was Kojo Antwi’s solicitation of funds for the funeral of his father.

“Kojo Antwi is a complete joke!!! You want £1,000,000 to bury your late dad, have you ever done a free concert for your loyal fans in Ghana??? Sell three of your properties in Accra to fund your dad’s funeral,” his comment read on Twitter.

Following his post, Kofi Abban has received a number of comments from people asking him to refer to the information in the description box, which emphasizes that the money will be used for a different reason.

He received criticism for ‘blindly’ going for Kojo Antwi without reading the description box.

In the most recent development, Mr. Abban claimed that his remarks were made in reference to a previous post that Kojo Antwi shared before deleting it.

“For every sunrise for work, there comes a sundown for rest. Damirifa due. Opanyin Kojo Asiamah Tano, Asubonten Odikro II. Audacious grandson from Nana Adonten from Kumasi Amakom. Mr. Music man with elders and family cordially invites you to participate,” parts of Kojo Antwi’s first post about the GoFundMe read.

xplaining further, MzGee, the recipient of the message from Kofi Abban’s camp said,

“According to him, at a time Kofi Abban responded, this was what was there. There was no purpose or explanation for the GoFundMe account. It means, per what is here, Kojo Antwi’s first post was targeted at the funeral. That is what is here. This was the first one before the second one that talks about the scholarship,” MzGee who read the messages out loud, said.

However, the GoFundMe post targeted at £1,000,000 has since realized $700 from four donors.
