We allowed the exploits of the Ambassador of France – Ministry of Tourism PRO
In charge of Public Relations for the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Constance Adomaa Takyi claims to have allowed the French Ambassador to act freely to support the Creative Arts sector.
In an interview with Andy Dosty on Daybreak Hitz, Madame Takyi denied rapper Guru’s claims that the French ambassador works harder than the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture.
On April 24, the rapper took to Twitter to call out the ministry on its failure to prioritize the needs of creatives and get his works out to the rest of the world.
He wrote: “Our French Ambassador works harder than our Ministry of Creation and Tourism. Appreciate his energy.
However, Constance Adomaa Takyi calls her statement “false” and “unfortunate”.
According to her, Guru and another person comparing the role of ministry and ambassador are wrong.
“It’s unfortunate but certainly not true. Guru is comparing two different things. The ministry exists with a different mandate and the diplomatic missions of the embassy also exist and have other mandates. If the ambassador is also working online to promote the arts, I don’t see anything wrong with that,” she said.
She also pointed out that the ministry has been able to set the tone for the free flow of engagements between the French Ambassador and the creative sector.
“We set the tone for her to have the enabler to do her job freely. She’s also supposed to promote her country, so if she thinks arts and culture is what will help her, that’s not wrong.
Musicians Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, Kwabena Kwabena and others with the support of the French Ambassador to Ghana, Anne Sophie, were in France for the ‘Accra in Paris’ concert which will take place this weekend.
Passing through France, the stars were projected on various platforms including national television to talk about the concert and the music industry.
This gig also gave a platform for Sarkodie and Stonebwoy to unite despite reports that they are not on good terms. Their fans must be excited about the union.
People like Doreen Avio, Dr Pounds, Guru, DKB and a few others have praised Her Excellency for her contribution to the sector.
