Three former winners of the Miss Ghana beauty pageant have revealed how they were used as sex baits to raise funds.
Stephanie Karikari, Miss Ghana 2010, Antoinette Delali Kemavo, Miss Ghana 2015 and Giuseppina Nana Akua Baafi, Miss Ghana 2013, spoke about exploitation, verbal and physical abuse and being used as sex baits by Inna Patty, the current owner of Miss Ghana’s franchise holding company, Exclusive Events Ghana, to raise sponsorship.
The three former Miss Ghana queens spoke to celebrity gossip website Ghanacelebrities.com
Kemavo revealed Inna Patty expressly told her to be “Sweet” and “acceptable” of whatever a man they were seeking sponsorship from would demand of her—and that was immediately before she took her to have a late night dinner at this man’s residence in Nungua, Accra.
And when she wanted to know when they would leave, she said; the man told her, he thought “she was sleeping over.”
Stephanie Karikari on her part said she was asked to visit a successful businessman to seek for a sponsorship deal for Miss Ghana—adding that, she was told by Inna to be “nice to the man” to obtain the money.
“The Inna Patty I know wouldn’t explicitly tell any of the Miss Ghana winners to go and have sex with a man for money but she will subtly make you aware that this is what you have to do,” Ghanacelebriteies.com quoted one of the three Beauty Queens as saying.
Giuseppina Nana Akua Baafi in a statement revealed that she was asked to attend a “strange” meeting at 11pm which she declined.
The three former Beauty Queens also revealed how they were used by Exclusive Events Ghana to raise funds.
According to them, they were made to raise GHC10,000 every month, out of which they were given 30 or 20 percent share depending on their personal arrangement.
The money, they were told, was to be used as registration fee for Miss World and other philanthropic projects in deprived communities.
