Ofori Amponsah after bagging fourteen solo albums to his credit, says he has experienced low moments that really left him with life changing lessons. Affectionately also known as “Mr. All For Real” he noted that going all out to support other musicians by way of giving his written songs to them to sing is one he wont repeat ever.
He wondered why people will be ungrateful to persons who have supported them in the past. That is something he can never do. Ofori Amponsah noted neither has he written a song for Daddy Lumba and vice versa. They only worked on an album together. The high life legend advised colleagues not to take pleasure in blame games but take responsibility for things they do. “I don’t blame anybody in everything I do. If I do something and it fails I take responsibility. I embarked on something and it failed”(speaking in Twi).
“It has taken me over 25years to get there but they want to take 2 years to get there.” The “Abele” hit maker added that knowing the controversies that bedevils the music industry, at every point in his dealing, he put pen to paper”. I have records of monies collected by artistes I featured and when I bring them as evidence they are surprised”. This was his response to accusations by some artistes he worked with saying he cheated them when it came to payments.
In an interview with Agyemang on TV XYZ’s Legend show, Ofori Amponsah added that K.K Fosu, Barosky, Kofi Nti and other guys he worked with added some value to the songs they featured on. He emphasized that he wrote the songs they featured on and he finds it unappreciative when they go on interview platforms to claim ownership.
Samuel Ofori Amponsah clarified allegations suggesting that he, did not have a good relationship with the late Kofi Bee before his demise. Ofori Amponsah stated that, he actually invested in the carrier of the later. “When I had not dropped my first album yet, I was going round to seek for sponsorship for the late Kofi Bee’s project and actually wrote and own most of his hits songs” he added.
He won seven awards in one night at the 2006 VGMA awards, including 2005 Artist of the Year. Some of his most popular songs are “Asew”, “Lady,” “Emmanuella,” “Odwo”, and “Otoolege.” Amponsah started working with Daddy Lumba in 1999. He gained entry into the music industry when they collaborated together on the album “Wo Ho Kyere“.
