The leadership of *Women Empowerment and Integrity Consult(WEIC)* has keenly monitored and follow the accusations and counter-accusations involving the Miss Ghana Beauty Queens and Exclusive Events Ghana Limited, the organisers of the Beauty Pageant.
Our research findings revealed that Chris-Vicent Agyapong of Ghanacelebrities.com has been the key source and facilitator of the negative publicity against Exclusive Events Ghana Limited and it’s CEO Inna Patty.
WEIC decided to initiate an investigation into the Miss Ghana Controversies and our interim findings revealed that Shirley Frimpong Manso and Menaye Donkor have allegedly paid a whopping sum of $ 200, 000 to Chris-Vicent Agyapong, Ghanacelebrities.com and the former beauty queens namely Margaret Dery, Stephanie Karikari, Giuseppina Nana Akua Baafi and Antoinette Delali Kemavor to totally discredit and destroy the reputation of Inna Patty and Exclusive Events Ghana Limited.
Down the memory lane, Media Whizz Kids, which has been organizing the Miss Ghana Beauty Pageant for over ten years, handed over the organization some time ago to Sparrow Production Limited owned by Shirley Frimpong Manso in 2004. The franchise was handed back to Media Whizz Kids after several controversial issues including lawsuits. Media Whizz Kids later sold the longstanding franchise to Exclusive Events Ghana Limited owned by Inna Patty.
The transfer of the franchise from Shirley Frimpong Manso to Inna Patty really affected Shirley Frimpong Manso of Sparrow Production and since that time she has been secretly undermining Inna Patty. At the appropriate time, the audio and video recordings to this effect will be released.
Amazingly, another resourceful woman who has joined hands with Shirley Frimpong Manso to destroy Inna Patty is the wife of the footballer Sulley Muntari, Menaye Donkor.
Menaye Donkor now has the exclusive longstanding franchise to organise the Miss Universe Ghana, competing for sponsorship with the organizers of Miss Ghana Beauty Pageant.
Shirley Frimpong Manso wants the franchise back to organize the Miss Ghana Beauty Pageant again and Menaye Donkor too also considers Inna Patty as a threat and rival to the success of her Miss Universe Ghana events.
We are humbly appealing to Menaye Donkor and Shirley Frimpong Manso to cease with immediate effect the evil agenda masterminded to destroy Inna Patty and the organizers of Miss Ghana Beauty Pageant. It does not augur well for the growth of the tourism sector of the economy.
Women need each other to fight for a single purpose of women empowerment. We cannot achieve this vision if we decide to destroy one another because of our selfish parochial interest.
According to our credible intelligence, Shirley Frimpong Manso and Menaye Donkor are sponsoring Chris-Vicent Agyapong and certain individuals to petition the Presidency, Ministry of Tourism, Miss World and other relevant bodies to seek for the suspension of Inna Patty’s license/franchise.
Meanwhile, Shirley Frimpong Manso and Chris-Vicent Agyapong have a joint Events Management Company in the UK.
Women should support each other to succeed and not destroy one another.
We will organise a press conference very soon to expose the real Hippocrates in the Beauty Pageant Industry.
