In the end, the contribution of Nana Appiah Mensah to Ghana’s entertainment industry cannot be underscored.

Irrespective of his “illegal” source of funding, NAM 1’s vision for Ghana’s entertainment industry was very clear to all. Then the Menzgold saga shook the nation to the core.

But indeed, “it happened” – Menzgold was shut down and Nana Appiah Mensah’s vision, just like Humpty Dumpty, had a great fall!

Several months down the line, Shatta Wale has broken his silence and has pledged unflinching loyalty to NAM 1.
