Singer Ramzy Amui who was released from prision a couple of days ago after spending 10 years in detention, has revealed that his management turned its back on him when he needed them most.

Speaking on the “Total Showbiz” segment on Okay FM’s drive time program, Ramzy disclosed that he had a 5 year management and production contract with Emklan Entertainment owned by Musician/Radio Presenter Okyeame Quophi and his wife Stacey Amoanteng, but none of them paid him a visit throughout his 10 year incarceration period at the Nsawam Maximum Prisons.

“Never! not once. None of them came to visit me”.

Asked what might have prevented them from visiting him Ramzy said “I don’t know but maybe they didn’t want to associate themselves with somebody like me anymore”, adding that they had “not contacted him even after his release and he has also not contacted them”.

According to Ramzy, Okyeame Quophi who was like his elder brother, first heard his voice during an interview on the then Choice FM and drove straight there and told him he wanted to produce and manage him. According to him, Quophi met his family and officially introduced himself after which he left his family to go and stay with him and his wife Stacy in Kumasi.

Meanwhile, Okyeame Quohphie has confirmed that indeed he had a 5 year contract under his Emklan Entertainment company and he has also admitted that neither he nor his wife Stacy visited Ramzy while he was in jail.

“I’ve been in and out of the country for the period. We have spoken a couple of times. I made attempts but physically I never went there I’m a man of my word like I said,” he explained during an interview on Hitz FM.

Explaining his reason for not visiting him, Quophie said “That was a promise to him before he went. There are a whole lot of things that I cannot talk about publicly…. It will not be professional on my path, but I quite remember I said the words to him before he went. I’m a man of my words.”

In 2007, Ramzy and eight others pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy, armed robbery and dishonesty receiving under Article 29, Clause 146 of the criminal code.

With four months to the end of his term, he filed an appeal which landed him 10 more years after the appeal failed. However, by some divine intervention, he was released after 10 years on December 29 last year. Ramzy Amui who was the runner-up of music talent hunt show ‘Stars of the Future’ had a promising music career at the time of his arrest.

He placed second at the Stars of the Future in 2006 and also auditioned for the M-net West African Idol contest in Nigeria in 2007.

He was arrested only a few days before the date he was scheduled to go and compete in Nigeria.
