On Saturday, Dumelo posted a picture of a graduate (who turned out to be the owner of a bakery company which produces A1 bread among others) hawking and wondered what could have caused the young man to hit the streets.
“Just saw a KNUST grad hawking in traffic. What went wrong?” his post read.
A Plus who could not fathom why John Dumelo had an issue with a graduate’s decision to hawk launched scathing attack on the actor and called on him to render an unqualified apology.
“I’m angry!!! Everyday I post my opinion. Today I’m posting my anger. John Dumelo remove this post from Instagram now!!! A bread seller is a human being. You can’t just take pictures of people and post it on your page for attention. A bread seller has right which must be respected. A bread seller is better than an armed robber!!! A bread seller is better than a drug dealer!!! It’s better for a person to hawk on the streets than to indulge in crime. I’m looking for this bread seller. John Dumelo must apologise to him. Or prepare for a legal battle!!!” he posted on Facebook.
It has, however, emerged that the young man at the centre of the controversy is the Chief Executive Officer of a bakery company which produces A1 bread.
“This guy is one of the richest young guys in Ghana, he is CEO and employs over 200 people in kumasi, the CEO of Bakers line gh Ltd,and part owner of kumasi branch of kona. You don’t know him and you cast ur doubt on him, he is the big guy, my guy check him very well, ask ur celebrities who is kwaku Vito O.Boateng. He is my boss, he parked his array of cars to promote his brand in Accra and you don’t know shit, this boy go fit employ you Dumelo” one Samuel Awaitey’s comment on A Plus’ post read.
