Three former beauty Queens of Miss Ghana have accused Inna Patty, owner of franchise holding company, Exclusive Events of dishing them out to men for monetary gains.
According to the three – Stephanie Karikari (Miss Ghana 2010), Antoinette Delali Kemavor (Miss Ghana 2015) and Giuseppina Nana Akua Baafi (Miss Ghana 2013) – being part of the pageant is the most terrifying thing they have experienced adding that it is not as glamourous as it may seem.
In an audio conversation with Ghanacelebrities.com, all three former beauty queens accused Inna Patty of verbally abusing them and exploiting them to make money.
2013 Winner Giuseppina Nana Akua Baafi accused Inna Patty of paying her the 3, 000 Ghana cedis prize money over a one year period.
She also confirmed that Inna Patty’s mother brutally assaulted in her 2014 after a misunderstanding with Inna. According to her, she was only rescued by neighbours who heard her cry for help.
The former Queens described Inna Patty as manipulative, rude and deceptive adding that the pageant rather made them broke.
The former Queens described Miss Ghana as a glorified escort agency masquerading as a beauty pageant.
2015 winner Antoinette Delali Kemavor narrated how Inna Patty told her to be “Sweet” to a particular man they were seeking sponsorship from.
According to her, the man was shocked after she told him that he was not going sleep over at his place in Nungua in Accra.
Speaking to Starr News, Ms Kemavor said she didn’t allow herself to be sexually exploited after she was taken to the ‘Big Man’s’ house to have dinner at 10 pm.
She, however, added some other girls had more terrible experiences with so called Big Men who were linked to them by Inna Patty in other to raise money.
She described the Miss Ghana event as terrifying adding that the whole event was not worth it.
According to all the three Beauty Queens, they were asked via a contract they signed after winning the competition to raise 10,000 Ghana cedis each month for Exclusive Events Ghana.
The Queens narrated that Inna Patty told them that how they obtained the money was not her problem.
Inna Patty took over the Miss Ghana Franchise in October 2011.
