Psalm Adjetefio, better known by his stage as ‘T. T.,’ is back with a new plea.
His most recent appearance in the media was in September 2021, when he was unable to raise enough to pay his rent.
Philanthropists poured in tens of thousands of dollars, including one from Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia.
To help him out, the Vice President’s office gave him with a check for Ghc 50,000.
Henry Quartey, Greater Accra Regional Minister, has also pledged a monthly stipend of Ghc1,500 from his parliamentary salary to safeguard his well-being.
A leaked tape reveals otherwise, even before Ghanaians felt things were starting to look up for the ‘Taxi Driver.’
Psalm Adjetefio is heard asking for leftovers in a discussion that has gone viral on social media.
“Mrs G, good afternoon; I’m wondering if you would have some leftovers in your kitchen to spare,” he said.
He stated, “When you invest, it will take time before you begin enjoying it.”
He further explained that all other potential donors backed off upon hearing the announcement of the Vice President’s gesture.
“Right now the situation has created a lot of problems for me, you know a lot of people used to help me a lot…I even understood that some people have contributed some money in the U.S to be sent to me, the moment they heard it, everybody went for their money,” he said.
He further revealed that the remainder of the Greater Accra Minister’s gift has failed to reach his account after he received the first tranche.
“It came once, and that is all. I was in his office a few days ago, as a follow-up, but I was told he travelled, and they are on leave”.
The September 14 letter from the Greater Accra Minister’s office referred to another ¢5,000 purportedly promised by the Mac Dan Group of Companies.
But Mr Adjetefio said, “it’s not true.”
He said his investigations revealed that “the man actually released the money, but when he heard that the Vice President had given me that money, he also recalled his money.”
