Read their full letter below:
LETTER TO TV 3
Optional King shut down the entire Accra International Conference Center as audiences went wild with the announcement of finalist born Mohammed Lukeman as the winner of the TV3 Mentor Reloaded.
With memorable performances including the crazy Fela Kuti’s “Zombie” a creative rendition in his own dialect, the Optional King won the ultimate prize of a 2-bedroom house.
Optional King whose consistency in projecting the culture of the northern sector night after night earned praise of the judges who described him as ready for the showbiz industry.
1..The question now is where is the house?
2…when are they giving him the house?
3…why are they not informing the people that he was only giving a key but not the house?
4 ..should CF Optional King take them to court?
We are giving them one month if they don’t give him the house we will spread this to the whole world
TV3Ghana give this young man his house.
