Management of Hiplife artist Guru (realname: Nana Yaw Adjei Maradona) have issued a statement warning entertainment Journalists and panelists on entertainment discussion programs to ‘watch’ what they say about the “Pooley” hitmaker.
In the statement, Guru and his management have threatened to take legal action against “any slanderous communication or false accusation” without facts against the artist.
Ultimately, there is no denying that false accusations can have devastating consequences. This is particularly true for accusations that involve crime.
Being accused of a crime that you did not commit can be incredibly difficult to overcome and therefore it is vital that if you are ever in a position where false allegations are made, then legal guidance must be sought.

You can read the press statement regarding Guru in an unedited format below:
The Management of NKZ Music would like to seriously caution individuals, panelists, and journalists who falsely accuse their artist, Guru, of any wrongdoing without proof or facts to stop.
Any Slanderous communication or false accusation from now will be taken as an attack on the artist’s brand and reputation and will be taken as a defamatory action that will attract the proper legal actions.
It is sad to see that as other countries are promoting their artists with words of encouragement and positive actions, in Ghana some individuals who should know better have chosen to drag the hard-earned reputation of some artists down because they have refused to do their research, by investigating or interviewing the people they want to talk about to know the truth.
Over the years we’ve turned a blind eye to some of these accusations but now we’ve seen some individuals and journalists who should know better with their educational background also making false accusations and analyses without facts.
One such individual is Arnold who allegedly works for Razz Newspaper.
This gentleman sadly made some false and defamatory comments on GTV entertainment review show on the 6th of April 2015, which makes one ask if he really knew what he was saying
It is very worrying that this gentleman is also a journalist, a writer, and most of the time a panel member for entertainment shows, because if he could spread lies about Guru, what is the guarantee he has not been feeding the public lies concerning other matters.
It is very sad for our artists and the Ghana entertainment industry if even industry professionals cannot even give the truth or make the right analysis.
And even if it’s their own opinion is should come with the truth because once you appear on television the public most of the time take the information given as fact and the truth.
NKZ Music team understands and welcomes constructive criticism which is genuine and identifies correction to be made to improve the artist’s career and industry growth, not false ones that are designed to bring our hard-earned reputation down.
Television and show producers should make sure panelists and people given a platform have the right information before given the chance to talk because it takes years to build a positive image but just a second to destroy it.
So from now any Slanderous communication or false accusations will be taken as an attack on the artist’s name, brand, and reputation and will be taken as a defamatory action that will attract the proper legal action against the individual, team, or group.
We want to also take this opportunity to thank all media houses, organizations, and individuals who have in any way contributed to the success of Guru.
