When former 3Music Networks CEO Baba Sadiq and NPP Kpone Katamanso parliamentary candidate Hopeson Adorye engaged in verbal combat on UTV’s United Showbiz program, Nana Ama Mcbrown earned her fair share of criticism.
Mr. Hopeson Adorye didn’t spare the well-known actress who also serves as the host of United Showbiz, calling her biased for keeping her distance when Baba Sadiq insulted him.
With the allegation that he has openly offered to manage the party’s “dirty chores,” Sadiq poked fun at the NPP veteran.
Mr. Adorye’s assertion that Baba Sadiq was involved in a plan to round up some 75 young men from Fadama to jeer President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo at the Global Citizen performance prompted him to make his remarks.
Hopeson Adorye claimed that Sadiq bused these 75 young guys to the location just so they could boo the president, together with NDC’s Alhassan Suhuyini and Larry Dogbe.
“Sadiq of 3Music Awards is an industry player and has a connection with the lead organizers, he and Larry Dogbe and Suhuyini met at a particular place to plan. They contracted 75 boys from Fadama and paid each one of them GH¢120. The videos trending is a testament to it. It was from one particular shot,” he stated earlier in an interview with Accra FM.
In a bid to debunk the said claims, an infuriated Baba Sadiq went berserk and threw jabs at the NPP politician.
“Even people in his party are telling me to forget about him and that he isn’t well. You look at a young man who is working very hard and you want to trash him. I am not just an industry player; I am an investor. It is not a free event.
“He thinks it is a free event that people were bused to the venue. You’d have to go online, answer some questions and it will direct you to an IP. The data of every single person that attended the event has been recorded.
“At your level and age, don’t put yourself in a situation where people will have to disrespect you. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, Sammy Awuku and Samuel Jinapor came to meet you, why is it that when there is a dirty job it has to be you and not them,” he stated on UTV’s United Showbiz.
But in the heat of the moment, Mr. Adorye called out the host, Nana Ama Mcbrown, for allowing Baba Sadiq speak of him in such manner.
“You made me sit here patiently just to listen to this stupid talk, the lies and disrespect from this young man. How can you condone such?
“I could have equally spewed rubbish but I chose to remain calm and that doesn’t mean I am stupid. I am not happy about how you handled this issue at all. Let me state on record that I don’t like how you handled this,” he remarked in Twi.
