Still, it’s funny whenever this clearly dying pageant makes another awkward blunder which allows Ghanaians to heap more scorn on alleged ‘Pimp’ Inna Patty. According … Read more

Somehow the Miss Ghana pageant is still running and somehow, ladies are still enrolling despite the word of several former beauty queens about their experience with the pageant. If the pageant is still running though, it seems perhaps its because the standards have fallen drastically from its heydays, and Ghanaians are picking up on that. … Read more

There was a story a week or so ago on one of the many z-list blogs making claim to the fact that Ms Guiseppina Baafi, the 2013 winner of the Miss Ghana pageant, was the mother to a baby fathered by Atletico Madrid and Black Stars midfielder Thomas Teye Partey.
The story sprung up after Partey was spotted holding in hand a baby, leading to some desperate for traffic blogs to fabricate the claim against Giuseppina.
A legal battle for the ages is brewing in Ghana as the Miss Ghana scandal heads to the courtroom after years of being deliberated in the public sphere. Inna Patty and Exclusive Events Ghana are suing the three former beauty queens who have bravely come out to tell their stories, as well as GhanaCelebrities.Com and our Founding editor, Chris-Vincent Agyapong Febiri.
Yet another bombshell allegation has dropped about the embattled Inna Patty, CEO of Exclusive Events Ghana, organizers of the Miss Ghana pageant. Miss Ghana 2013 Giuseppenia Baafi has told GhanaCelebrities.Com that Patty was always on her neck to go for a nose job because she said getting a more pointy nose would make her deemed more ‘beautiful’ and attract more attention to herself.
The always controversy riddled Miss Ghana has had another hit to its credibility as 2017 winner Ms Maragret Dery has resigned her position. In the past GhanaCelebrities.Comhas reported extensively on the exploitation the Beauty Queens who dare enter Inna Patty’s pageant are forced to endure.

The past week has seen Miss Inna Patty and her Exclusive Event Ghana Limited (EEGL) sustain a place on the list of news headlines. At least 3 recent former Miss Ghana Queens – Antoinette Delali Kemavor (2015), Giuseppina Nana Akua Baafi (2013) and Stephanie Karikari (2010) – have publicly accused Miss Patty, who is also the CEO of EEGL, of financial, physical and sexual exploitation. In fact, some of the beauty queens have described the Miss Ghana beauty pageant, which Miss Patty and her EEGL run, as an “escort agency.” Other former notable finalists, like Margaret Kuma-Mintah- Miss Ghana first runner-up 2013 (who resigned from her post just 2 weeks after winning the enviable position) have corroborated the sordid allegations. Public sentiments leave no one in doubt that Ghana’s first President, Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah, intended to lift the image of the black race with the Miss Ghana Beauty pageant, but today it is rather doing the direct opposite. It is in this light that I, a former finalist of the pageant, wish to share my experiences, suspicions and beliefs with the public. I am doing this believing that it would help the public know what has become of this public asset – Miss Ghana. The Miss Ghana Philosophy The Miss Ghana pageant has a philosophy. President Nkrumah in his profound love for Africa initiated the Miss Ghana event immediately after Ghana`s independence in 1957 to serve as a platform to extol the virtues of the African personality and physique and also to prove to the world that the BLACK skin is BEAUTIFUL. It was also to offer the independent Ghanaian woman a platform to positively impact society. This move by Nkrumah was very much in tandem with his own Pan-African ideological underpinnings. Thus, Miss Ghana being the first official beauty pageant has also been part of the journey of the emancipation of the Black people; it was designed to showcase the beauty of the African woman in international beauty contests. In effect, the ground-breaking launch of Miss Ghana in 1957 offered a springboard to make a bold statement to the world that the Black skin is capable of standing at par with the Caucasian skin.
Miss Ghana 2017, Margaret Mwintuur Dery, has categorically denied reports going round that she is in a relationship with the brother of Ghana’s vice President, Mahamudu Bawumia. Ms Dery is allegedly involved in this s*xual escapade with Yakubu Bawumia in exchange for cash.
Inna Patty has travelled past the shores of Ghana with her exploitative nature being heard of all across the globe. BBC pidgin, a service started by the British Broadcaster which reports news in West Africa pidgin English, has also written their own version of the Patty story.
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.
In the last few hours, Inna Patty, owner of Exclusive Events Ghana, the company which holds the current Miss Ghana franchise has come under scrutiny and attack–after 4 former Beauty Queens came out to share experiences, revolving around being pimped, exploited, embezzlement of funds, verbal and physical abuse. In a total of about 3 hours’ conversation with GhanaCelebrities.Com, Miss Ghana 2010-Stephanie Karikari, Miss Ghana 2015-Antoinette Delali Kemavor, Miss Ghana 2013-Giuseppina Nana Akua Baafi and 2013 Miss Ghana first runner-up-Margaret Kuma-Mintah have all mustered the courage to speak about the different layers of exploitation, verbal and sometimes physical abuses and the sort of s*xual baits they were used for by Inna Patty. They also alleged embezzlement of funds raised, by Inna Patty and her organisation. In the wake of the allegations, GhanaCelebrities.Com decided to look at a copy of the Miss Ghana Contract, a document which until now has been a secret weapon of the organisers. The contract is the one signed in 2015 and shockingly, it shows everything that’s wrong with the beauty pageant. A reasonable reading of the Contract and Code of Conduct show clearly the existing imbalance of power and gross unfairness of the two documents, to the disadvantage of the Beauty Queens.

Exclusive Events Ghana, organizers of the annual Miss Ghana pageants seem unable to ever get their acts together and run a scandal free pageant.

Ghanaian Actress, Yvonne Okoro has said her family is obsessed with education and they easily get back to school when they are bored. The “Ghana Must Go” producer has been less active in showbiz lately though there’s nothing much for her to do in the limping Ghanaian Movie Industry.
