Ghanaian actor, Clement Bonney widely known as Mr. Beautiful has laid blame on former President John Agyekum Kufuor for the collapse of the popular entertainment event, Concert Party.
The Concert Party was a weekly entertainment show which was hosted at the National Theatre with a mixture of acting and music.
Speaking in an interview with veteran broadcaster Fiifi Banson, the actor stated that Kufuor’s appointment in 2002 of Madam Eva Lokko as Director General of the state broadcaster, GBC, killed the Concert Party show.
“Concert party collapsed through policies of Kufuor but many are not aware. He brought a woman called Eva Lokko to head GBC, at the time our main sponsor was Key Soap.
“She hiked the fee Unilever was paying for the telecasting of the programme forcing them to withhold their sponsorship, that is when the entire enterprise collapsed,” he intimated.
