The owner of Asempa FM Kwesi Twum is shamelessly chasing Kwesi Nyantakyi to beg him for an out-of-court settlement of Monday's gargantuan $2m lawsuit, two years after mocking Ghana FA president's claims of libelous statements on his radio station. 

Kwesi Twum, the owner of Multimedia Group Limited - the parent company of Asempa FM, has spent the past five days begging for a meeting with the Ghana FA president to convince him to drop the court action.

The desperate Twum has also sent several top respected members of the Ghanaian society and high ranking officials of the radio station to also beg Nyantakyi over the court case as hearing opens on Monday at the High Court in Accra.

This is a sudden turn of fortunes for Twum who laughed off claims by Nyantakyi two years ago that two sports presenters Patrick Osei-Agyemang and Kofi Asare Brako have been using Asempa FM to slander and falsely accuse him of malfeasance.

Twum has now shamelessly approached Nyantakyi's respected friend Ofosu 'Sikkens' Bamfo four times this week to beg for a meeting even though the latter was present when Nyantakyi told the owner of Asempa FM about the targeted character assassination on the radio station.

Sports presenters Patrick Osei- Agyemang, Kofi 'Abatay' Asare-Brako and media giants Multimedia Group Limited will appear before an Accra High Court on Monday over the defamation lawsuit brought by Ghana FA president and FIFA Council member Kwesi Nyantakyi.

Agyemang, aka Countryman Songo, Abatay and the media company have been hauled before the law courts as hearing on the long-standing case starts in the Ghanaian capital on Monday.

The famous court case entitled 'Kwesi Nyantakyi versus Patrick Osei Agyemang, Kofi Asare Brako and Multimedia Limited' will be heard at the High Court on Monday, 31st October, 2016.

Nyantakyi is adamant cutting short a football-related trip abroad to give evidence on Monday in the case that will see over 100 tape recordings tendered in evidence to back his claim of libel.

He will mount the witness box to open his case as he seeks to clear his name following persistent accusations of criminality and fraud on the radio station by the two presenters.

The GFA boss is suing the Countryman Songo, Abatay and the media company for $2m in the defamation and libel lawsuit after 'years of consistent lies and calculated negative campaigns', Nyantakyi will tell on the court.

This comes just three months after three journalists were jailed in Ghana for threatening some judges in the country on their radio station Montie FM.
