Speaking to GhanaCelebrities.Com on the issue, Ms Monalisa Effah, Managing Director of Young Scarlette termed the allegation as misleading and unsubstantiated. She indicated that her agency provided 37 ushers for the event, out of which 36 were Ghanaians and one Nigerian. According to her, Young Scarlette made available 100 ushers for the awards but the number was cut down to 37 after an intensive audition by the organizers. “Even though the panel was made up of mostly Nigerians, their selection was purely based on competence, hence ended up opting for 36 Ghanaians and a Nigerian,” she said.

They all, including the Nigerian, reside in Ghana,” said Ms. Effah.
