Musician Akosua Adjepong has dismissed allegations that she has defrauded a businessman to the tune of GH¢105,000.
According to her, she did not engage in any business transaction with the said businessman and therefore could not have received money from him.
Akosua Adjepong was dragged before the Accra Circuit Court on Tuesday for allegedly conniving with another person to defraud a businessman of ¢105,000 in a land sale.
Prosecutors claim that the musician and a man identified as Frank Agyemang (Killer Boss), who is her cousin, sold a parcel of land - worth ¢160,000 - which they did not own to the businessman.
They have jointly charged the two with conspiracy to commit crime and fraudulent transaction.
Reacting to the case, the highlife musician recalled, “He wanted a land where he can sell his cars and I said I have a land but I am not selling mine, but I have a cousin who has a land right opposite the West Hills Mall so we all went together to meet my cousin and then from there we went to the Lands Commission to verify the ownership of the land”.
According to her, she witnessed the first payment of ¢65,000 after which she travelled.
Akosua Adjepong said the businessman made other payments - ¢30,000 and ¢10,000 - in her absence remaining a balance of ¢60,000. “But the 60,000 he can’t pay so he will give him a car. So the car he gave my cousin was RAV4 and that one he said it was ¢100,000 so in this case my cousin will be owing him ¢40,000 so my cousin said 'let me give you another land to replace the ¢40,000'. All of this I was not there.”
The musician added that the businessman complained later that another individual came to claim that he was the rightful owner of the land.
“So he went to the police station saying that he doesn’t want the land anymore but somebody says the land is for him,” the ‘Frema’ hit singer said.
Akosua Adjepong revealed that her cousin has returned the RAV4 to the businessman and it is left with the ¢105,000 which he was in the process of refunding.
She stressed that her cousin genuinely owns the land, insisting that did not intend to defraud the businessman.
