One of the Tourism Ambassadors appointed by the Tourism Ministry, Evangelist Diana Asamoah has lambasted entertainment critic and CEO of Oxy FM, Kwame Alfred aka DJ Oxygen for asserting that, she [Diana Asamoah] lacks competence to work in her new capacity.
The Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture last week appointed Ghanaian musicians Diana Asamoah and Kaakyire Kwame Appiah as tourism ambassadors.
In a letter signed by the minister, Catherine Ablema Afeku, said the musicians have been asked to use their talents to promote sustainable tourism through music, arts, and culture.
“I write to officially confirm your appointment as Tourism Ambassador for Ghana.
"We at the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture look forward to a fruitful relationship that will promote Ghana’s Domestic and International Tourism through your efforts,” a section of the appointment letter sent to the musicians read.
Responding to the appointment of Diana Asamoah on GH Entertainment, DJ Oxy as he is popularly called posited that, the award winning gospel musician would not be able to work effectively because she is unlettered.
He insisted that the appointment was flawed and was only meant to reward the musician for her endorsement of Nana Addo in 2016.
But speaking in an interview with rainbowradioonline.com, Evangelist Diana Asamaoh took a swipe at Oxy describing his comments as unfortunate.
She emphasized that she will deliver exceptionally and her legacy as Tourism Ambassador will make her critics marvel.
According to her, she will bring her competence to bear in her new appointment.
She made reference to 1st Corinthians 1:27 which read: ‘’ Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful,’’ (New Living Translation) to buttress her point.
She also made reference to Acts 4:13 which read: ‘’ 13 When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus,’’ to also make a strong case that she [Diana Asamoah] is like someone considered as unschooled but what her delivery for new appointment will shock everyone.
