On Saturday, October 7, 2023, one of the most unthinkable things happened during the live broadcast of UTV’s award-winning United Showbiz program.

The show had to be abruptly halted when a group of young men who claimed to be affiliates of the NPP stormed the studios while MzGee was doing her introdution for the show to threaten some of the panelists, especially the leader of the TPP Movement, A Plus.

Subsequent videos shared on social media depict a chaotic scene within the UTV studio, with several men calling out for Kwame A Plus.

“We are waiting for A Plus today… A Plus has to explain to us why he tore our paper from the NPP party. We are here, we are waiting for A Plus. We are protecting our party property,” one of the men is heard shouting in the studio.

The confusion resulted in a break in production before the program was eventually taken off the air.

Amidst the chaos, one name was dragged into the controversy—Ernest Kofi Owusu-Bempah Bonsu, the Deputy Director of Communications for the NPP.

Kwame A Plus, a panelist on the show directly linked Owusu-Bempah to the incident, making serious allegations against him. He repeatedly claimed that Owusu-Bempah was responsible for the disruption of the program and even issued a direct threat against him.

Furthermore, A Plus alleged that Owusu-Bempah mobilized the group that disrupted the United Showbiz program without providing any lawful justification or evidence. He even indicated that he would mobilize thugs to come and harm Owusu-Bempah at Ghana Gas.

Owusu-Bempah, in response to these allegations and defamatory statements, has vehemently denied any involvement in the disruption of the program and has taken legal action. He made a formal complaint to the police regarding the threat made to his life.

In a public statement released on October 8, 2023, Owusu-Bempah demanded a retraction of A Plus’s defamatory words and an unqualified apology. He emphasized that these accusations and defamatory statements were made without any substantiation or lawful justification.

Owusu-Bempah concluded the statement by warning that if A Plus fails or refuses to issue the demanded apology, he will have no other option but to instruct his lawyers to institute legal action for the damage and injury caused to his integrity.
