Management of award-winning Dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy has denied claims by the National Sports Authority (NSA) that the artiste paid an amount of GH₵70,000 to use  Accra sports stadium for an event.


On February 5, the Director General of the NSA, Prof. Peter Twumasi informed the Public Accounts Committee of Parliament that Stonebwoy paid a sum of GH₵70,000 to secure the Accra sports stadium for his 5th Dimension Concert in December 2023.


However, the Manager of Stonebwoy, Chief Abiola said the claim by the NSA is inaccurate.


“To be very honest with you, these are contractual matters and usually I wouldn’t want to engage in a public space but the Public Accounts Committee is a very serious committee that it got before the committee so I wouldn’t want to be here on radio to state otherwise.” He said.


“But what I can tell you clearly is that I was delegated by Stonebwoy to lead the charge in terms of doing the negotiations and payment of the stadium. I can also tell you for a fact that yes we paid more than GH₵70,000 for the stadium but I mean I am just watching the issues unfold so I wouldn’t want to disclose into detail for now. I hope you bear with me,” he said in an interview on Hitz FM on February 6.


This came as a shock to many particularly when concerns have been raised as to why the stadium is being rented out for events due to the deteriorating risk involved.


The NSA has been appearing before the Public Accounts Committee this week and has received severe criticisms from Ghanaians relating to the accounts given by the Director-General, Prof. Peter Twumasi.


The NSA announced the closure of the Accra sports stadium for footballing activities but still rented it out for events in December last year.


When asked by the Public Accounts Committee why such a decision was taken ,Prof. Twumasi defended by saying “before we shifted our sporting activities to other stadia, we made mention of this to all stakeholders that in December, a particular period will be used for other events which are not sporting and the revenue for it should be able to recover entirely everything.”
