After a full two days of hiding somebody from the Miss Ghana pageant has finally spoken out and their defence is just as pathetic as one would expect.
Inna Patty herself is in hiding but PRO for the pageant, Arnold Asamoah Baidoo, has come out to address a narrow portion of the allegations.
GhanaCelebrities.Com broke the news — Miss Ghana pageant winners are treated quite like slaves by pageant owner Inna Patty, who requires them to raise the absurd amount of Ghc 10,000 every month they hold the crown with no qualms about where the money comes from.
In conversations with 4 beauty queens, GhanaCelebrities.Com detailed the systemic level of abuse inflicted on these young and vulnerable girls, most of which is legalized in the contracts the girls sign sometimes with no legal representation.
Since the allegations broke, pageant organizers have remained in hiding, with Inna Patty swerving Ghanaians on Monday just before a scheduled appearance on Okay Fm.
However, mynewsgh reports Asamoah Baidoo responded to the allegations on Hitz Fm by indicating lawyers were present for the signing of the contracts and even sometimes, the parents of the girls.
“As far as I’m concerned, that is not a fact. That is not true. They have representation. They have counsel. We even get their parents involved in dealings.” he said.
“For the girls to make such allegations like this, potentially can affect the brand.”
