Media personality, Gloria Akpene Aquah, popularly known as ‘MzGee’, has asked the Ghana Football Association to investigate allegations leveled against them by Ghanaian dancehall musician Stonebwoy.
A few days ago, Stonebwoy took to Twitter to allege that the GFA intentionally sidelined players for the final black stars team because they refused to bribe their way through.
“There are players who are supposed to be in the squad who are not here because of #PayToPlay. GFA why?” he questioned on Twitter.
Reacting to the claims, Mzgee called on the GFA not to sleep on such allegations, especially from a brand like Stonebwoy.
She stated during a discussion on United Showbiz, “When I saw the tweet, my heart skipped because Stonebwoy isn’t a small brand. What he wrote wasn’t only spotted by Ghanaians. People all over the world saw it. Even if these accusations are true, can’t we talk about it at home and not make noise about it? Now you have exposed our GFA to the entire world. FIFA is watching. You have exposed us to a bigger community. There is no proof to what he is saying.”
“I remember an instance I made an inference on social media over someone’s commentary, the person’s lawyers wrote to me. I am waiting for GFA to respond to this. What do they have to say? Because they have been tagged. Once they don’t respond to this, then there is an iota of truth in this. Because a bigger brand with a huge following has said it, his followers can also say it. As for Stonebwoy, if he has no proof, then it is now time for him to come and tell us that he said it out of jest. Because you cannot denigrate someone’s brand in that manner when you don’t want your brand to be rubbished,” she added.
Meanwhile, the 2022 Qatar World Cup opening ceremony has begun with performances from acts across the globe.
