RAPPER DESMOND Blackmore, popularly known as D-Black, has rubbished reports he said actor John Dumelo and radio presenter Abeiku Santana are not better than any of the appointed tourism ambassadors of Ghana.
D-Black downplayed reports circulating on several online portals that he has jabbed Santana and Dumelo.
According to the rapper, when the concerning the inability of the Creative Arts Council to sign the two industry players as tourism ambassadors question was posed to him, he maintained that politicisation in the entertainment industry should be shunned.
Speaking on ‘Daybreak Hitz’ on Hitz FM, D-Black explained that the mere fact that Dumelo and Santana were not part of the ambassadors did not mean they would never be included.
He added that entertainers in the industry were to help create a positive image for the country, so since Santana and Dumelo are ambassadors, they were deemed to be included. “Creative arts made their selection; we are not politicians, just entertainers. I never said that and let me clarify to clear the air. We are just helping the country. It’s the job of the ministry if they think you can be on their agenda then why not,” he stressed.
D-Black noted that “I wouldn’t be surprised if they are added. I know John Dumelo and Abeiku have really helped the industry. I think they are good fits. I think they’ve made a greater contribution…”
