Meanwhile, Prakash Bestman (Pochano), a member of Sammy Gray Gboguy’s team one of the presidential candidates in the Liberian Music Union pending election, has also condemned the alleged abuse.
“We straightly condemn all forms of abuse against our sisters and will hold anyone involved in such acts accountable to the fullest extent of the law regardless of who you may be. Under the Sammy Gray Gboguy administration, sexual abuse, harassment, or exploration is an important element under our artists welfare program and we shall work with relevant government agencies to make sure that perpetrators be brought to book without any fear nor favor,” Bestman added.
It can be recalled Sweetz complained of how DenG tried to rape her but she was saved when he noticed that she was menstruating.
In an interview with FPA, she said DenG is seen as a brother so when he went to the US, she wanted to hold talks with him on several issues, including the entertainment industry back home.
She recalled that both of them had never had any consensual sexual discussion and was surprised that he attempted abusing her.
“He and I been cool. We’ve known each other for long. I took him as a big brother. It had been mutual and nothing else,” she explained.
Several other young women have also accused DenG of sexually assaulting them before granting them collaboration.
