Husband and manager of renowned gospel songstress Joyce Blessing has told Flex newspaper how shocked he was when the CEO of Media Excel, Kwasi Ernest, failed to come to their rescue when his wife who used to be under the management of Media Excel productions was being accused of song theft on GH Entertainment last two weeks.
In the studios of Rainbow Radio two weeks ago, Joyce Blessing together with her new manager and husband Dave Joy who also doubles as a sound engineer were being accused of song theft by one music composer, Ernest Sarfo. According to him (Ernest Sarfo), Joyce Blessing failed to give him the credit and what is due him after taken from him lyrics for her MONKO MAKYI track some three years back.
In the heat of events, the producer of the show called Joyce Blessing’s former manager Kwasi Ernest to take his views since the song in question used to be under his management. To the surprise of listeners and that of Joyce Blessing and her Husband, Kwasi Ernest told the producer of GH. Entertainment he was not ready to involve himself in matters involving his former artiste Joyce Blessing.
To many people it is unclear why Ernest Sarfo kept mute for a whole three years whiles his toils and creativity were being enjoyed by someone else and after so many years he is now out fighting for his right when the song in question is gradually fading out of the system.
In a nut shell, many believe it is actually Kwasi Ernest who is masterminding this whole scenario to frustrate Joyce Blessings career for leaving his outfit after investing hugely in her career as a musician. In our quest to get clear answers to these questions, Flex newspaper sought the opinions of the manager, sound engineer and husband of the said musician Dave Joy and he had this to say.
“I can’t really say it’s Kwasi Ernest who has planned all this but I was a bit surprised when he refused to talk about the issue when he was being called on phone by the producer, looking at the relationship we had with him, I was a bit disappointed,” he said.
“Ernest Ennin and Ernest Sarfo are two close friends and when we were done with the HEAVY PRICE PROJECT and Kwasi Ernest accepted to take charge. We told him about the monies we owe Ernest Sarfo and all other expenses, we even had a meeting with the two of them afterwards but decided to leave Kwasi Ernest to handle it his own way since they were both good friends. Obviously, they couldn’t come into a common agreement and hence this issue today,” he added.
“We spoke on phone that same week he went on radio and told him we had wanted to come over to his place and sort him out but looking at the numerous interviews we had that week, we asked him to name his price so we can make the payment directly into his account and after the interviews, we will personally pay him a visit and thank him for his support but he hanged-up saying, we should forget paying the money if we can’t come to his house. We called several times afterwards but he refused answering our calls until what happened,” he said.
When asked how they will maintain their relationship with Kwasi Ernest after behaving strangely on phone, he said “every individual has his negatives and positives and you don’t always concentrate only on the bad aspect of the individual. Even though you will be a bit careful in your dealings with them, we have a very good relationship with Kwasi Ernest and his family and this shouldn’t ruin it because he (Kwasi Ernest) has been a blessing to my family in so many ways but for him not talking on air, he could have done better.”
