I haven’t made a pesewa from Kotoko’s song –Pat Thomas
Veteran Ghanaian singer and producer, Kwabena Nyamekye Amoo-Mensah, well known as Pat Thomas, has commented about the popular song he composed for Asante Kotoko FC some years ago.
Speaking in an interview on Kumasi-based Pure FM, Pat Thomas revealed the song titled ‘Asante Kotoko’, an official song for the popular football club was recorded in 1982.
Sadly, the veteran musician said he has not made a penny from the song.
“Every Kotoko supporter might think I have made a lot of money out of this song but I tell you I haven’t made a pesewa from this song. I recorded the song by myself for the love of the team. I haven’t made a pesewa out of it,” he stated.
Though he composed the song due to his love for the club, Pat Thomas wished some appreciation should have been shown by the management of Asante Kotoko.
