2020 has been a very long year with a lot of issues and incidents.
As the year ends today, we have put together seven incidents that we think, to an extent, tarnished the image or had a negative effect on the good reputation of some prominent people in Ghana.
We have tagged it as the “biggest yawa moves of 2020”. Check them out:
Fella Makafui fainted at her wedding as a prank
Medikal and Fella Makafui got married on March 7, 2020. During the ceremony, Fella Makafui fainted and was rushed to a safer place for medical attention.
This incident got a lot of people on social media very worried, only for her to return to the wedding grounds minutes later to reveal that the act was planned to prank Medikal to see if he would be scared to lose her.
Duncan-Williams’ Son, Daniel posted lewd videos on Twitter
Daniel Duncan-Williams, son of Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams, generated a huge buzz on Twitter in June after he posted lewd videos of himself with women on the platform. This got a lot of people talking and wondering why the son on a powerful preacher would be involved in such acts.
The Archbishop later released a statement and explained the reason for his son’s social media outburst. According to him, his son has bipolar disorder and he experiences relapses when he stops taking his prescribed medication. Daniel, however, was taken for treatment and has since been in good health.
Carlos Ahenkorah visited voter registration centres while he had COVID-19
Carlos Ahenkorah, the Member of Parliament for Tema-West, was heavily criticised by Ghanaians for putting the lives of his constituents at risk just to further his political agenda.
He visited some voter registration centres in his constituency when he had tested positive for COVID-19. Mr Ahenkorah explained that even though he was asymptomatic (showing no symptoms), he was in a mask and kept his distance when he visited the centres.
Carlos Ahenkorah, after the criticism from Ghanaians, resigned from his position as Deputy Minister for Trade and Industry.
Stonebwoy’s alleged attack on Sarkodie’s manager, Angel Town
Stonebwoy allegedly attacked Sarkodie’s manager, Angel Town in August. The incident reportedly happened at the Independence Square during the filming of Sarkodie’s Black Love virtual concert.
Stonebwoy was one of the artists billed to perform, however, a misunderstanding between Stonebwoy and Angel Town, reportedly, resulted in the former physically attacking and getting the eye of the latter injured. Stonebwoy and Angel Town later resolved their differences.
Akuapem Poloo posed naked in front of her son
Akuapem Poloo was heavily criticised on social media for posing naked in front of her son.
The actress’ son turned 7 on June 30, and she took to social media to wish him a happy birthday with a photo which shows her naked in front of her son. According to Akuapem Poloo, she decided to go naked to prove to her son that she gave birth to him in the same state and that if he should see her naked, lying somewhere, he should not pass by but rather see her as his mom who brought him to life.
She is being tried in court for the photo she posted. According to Child Rights International, the post of Akuapem Poloo “undermines the privacy or is likely to detract the dignity of the [7-year-old] boy.”
Ghanaians celebs received “fake awards” from “Dr UN”
Some Ghanaian celebrities were presented with “fake awards” in August. The awards were presented to them by Kwame Owusu Fordjour (Dr Un), the founder of the award scheme titled “Global Blueprint Excellence Award”.
He was accused of using the United Nations and the name of its former General Secretary, Kofi Annan, to make the award scheme appear credible.
Ghanaians also criticised the recipients of the award, especially the journalists, for not verifying the authenticity of the award scheme.
The celebrities who received the award include Sarkodie, D Black, Berla Mundi, Natalie Fort, DJ Black, Nathaniel Attoh and other prominent people.
D-Black’s sex tape leaked online
Not too long after he was presented with a “fake award”, a sex tape involving D-Black was leaked online. He got trolled on Twitter by Ghanaians after the sex tape went viral.
Adrienne Nicole, the woman in a leaked sex tape with D-Black, later spoke out and explained how the video became public.
According to Adrienne, who is an American Politician and Philanthropist, she lost her phone at an airport, and the person who found the phone threatened to leak the video if she didn’t pay the money he asked for. After failing to agree to the demands, the video was leaked and it went viral.
