Artiste and entrepreneur, D-Black, has reacted hours after news broke that the Electricity company of Ghana (ECG) has cut off power supply at his club, Oasis. On Wednesday, April 27, 2022, a national task force from ECG went to the business premises of the rapper to disconnect it from accessing the national grid.
The reason the facilities have been denied electricity supply is because, according to the ECG, the businesses were illegally using electricity as they bypassed the ECG meters.
The premises house Oasis Pool, Shisha Lounge, and Club Onyx – all owned by D-Black.
According to Citi newsroom, when the officials of the ECG found out, they “served notice on the managers of Oasis Pool and Shisha Lounge to report to its office for further interrogation.”
D-Black, who had not made any comment about the issue, tweeted on Thursday, April 28 that nobody should laugh at him for what has ensue.
This action by the ECG is part of the company’s efforts to collect debts owed it by all defaulting clients not excluding state agencies.
On March 14, 2022, the ECG taskforce disconnected the power supply to Terminal 3 and other offices of the Kotoka International Airport due to unpaid bills.
Other agencies that have suffered power cuts by the task force include the Accra Sports Stadium.
