Kwesi Ernest, the boss of Media Excel Production, apologised to his former artiste Joyce Blessing for a comment he made about her few days ago.
He said that he was sorry for saying Joyce Blessing and other artistes performed abysmally after leaving their record labels.
“I take responsibility for my comment. I deeply apologise to all of them including my own child Joyce Blessing. If what I said has affected her brand she should forgive me. I am really sorry and I pray such incident does not occur again,” he said on Happy FM.Kwesi also stated the he was ready to offer any help needed to promote Joyce Blessing’s songs.
Not long ago, Joyce described Kwesi as a cheat.
She recounted an instance where Kwesi charged a huge sum of money from someone who needed her service but reported to her a lesser amount.
“We went for a programme and I was asked to perform for two days. The money I was provided was not enough so I was arguing with the pastor who booked us for the programme. Not knowing, the pastor had paid Ernest more than what he had told me,” she disclosed on Kasapa FM.
According Joyce, Kwesi Ernest, after they parting with her, asked some radio presenters and DJs to stop playing her songs on the radio.
“How can you say I have released three albums without getting them to the limelight? That literally means Zylofon has made a big mistake for signing me. I have never talked ill about you but you always paint me black to everyone,” she added.
She said, she, together with her husband Dave, borrowed money from people to invest in her music career, reiterating that Kwesi was not part of the struggle they went through.
Ernest Kwesi told Graphic Showbiz in an interview recently that it was a bad decision for artistes who were doing well with certain record labels to walk away.
He mentioned Joyce Blessing, Cecilia Marfo, Qwesi Oteng, Wutah as examples of artistes whose exit from record labels has yielded good results for their music trade.
Obviously, Joyce got infuriated by his statement, hence the revelation that he was a cheat.
Earlier, Qwesi Oteng had also fired back at the Media Excel boss.
