In recent times, there have been several allegations and suggestions from some public figures against Nana Aba Anamoah as being a pimp who conceals her ‘trade’ with journalism, a claim the newscaster has been silent over.
Just when the accusations were dying down, Onua TV’s presenter AJ Poundz caused a stir with some fresh allegations. Like others, she claimed the GHOne news editor runs a pimp business through which she links young girls to men in exchange for money.
Nana Aba Anamoah’s reaction was neither a denial, a confirmation nor threat to sue as mostly done by some persons who may have been inundated with accusations of same.
She rather declined commenting on the issue when GhanaWeb contacted her because she doesn’t “know the TV station” the said lady spoke on and is “not interested in speaking about it.”
AJ Poundz, had alleged amongst other things that, Nana Aba Anamoah used her media school established some years ago as a ‘recruitment agency’ to run the business.
“Someone even came to my DM to tell me that she was in Kofi Abban’s house when Nana Aba came there to conduct one of such businesses of which she was given 20k…It’s a problem, why don’t you go alone and leave our girls alone, girls prefect. Why?” AJ Poundz questioned.
“On a more serious note, a lady sent me a message indicating that she was one of the students of the now-defunct media school which belonged to Nana Aba Anamoah at Kokomlemle. She said Ms. Anamoah was taking them places to link them to men to sleep with them in exchange for money. In the aftermath, Nana Aba Anamoah would give them 40 per cent of the money,” she added.
Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong in the wake of the release of a video clip which captured National Security minister Albert Kan Dapaah sweet-talking a lady who isn’t his wife alleged he is well informed of a cartel of slay queens run by a popular ‘talkative’ TV presenter.
“Look, their gang, they get on planes… one female journalist with a parrot mouth on TV, she is their leader. She takes them out for prostitution. If they misbehave, I’ll release their videos,” the legislator warned.
Although he did not mention names, a section of the public, including comedienne Afia Schwarzenegger, fan into flame the accusation.
“As the spiritual gossip leader of the nation, I can say for a fact that this is so true. He was talking about our English Girls Prefect…mmm you know her paaa. Good day, and keep the discussion in your office as for me I am not well,” her Instagram post read.
The use of ‘English Girls Prefect’ drove the conversation with some suggesting that, based on Abeiku Santana’s description of Nana Aba Anamoah as ‘Girls Prefect’ during their war of words, she was the one Afia Schwarzenegger made reference to in her post.
The Abeiku Santana – Nana Aba war
When American rapper Cardi B reportedly snubbed Ghanaian female celebrities at the ‘meet and greet’ session in December, last year, Abeiku Santana could not fathom Nana Aba’s loud silence over the issue when she once chastised his outfit – Despite Media – for inviting Tacha, a Big Brother Naija housemate to Ghana.
“Does Cardi B have an appointment with you Ghanaian celebrities?,” Abeiku Asked. “Did she call you people? And you Nana Aba Anamoah with the sharp mouth, you comment about everything that goes on… Why have not addressed this issue on social media? We brought BBNaija star Tacha to teach her about the cultural values of Ghana and you disrespected her.”
In response, the GH One presenter threatened to deal with Abeiku Santana if indeed he made such claims.
“Did Abeiku really say that I dissed UTV for bringing someone to Ghana? I’d like to know when and where I did that? @AbeikuSantana did you really say that? Oh, nka this TL will be LIT. Kindly confirm if you opened your mouth to spew what these bloggers have been claiming,” she tweeted.
That was indeed the beginning of the ‘war’ as a counter response was unleashed.
During one of the editions of his show, Abeiku said: “Nana Aba Anamoah you say you’re Sarkodie’s PR and also a fan of Shatta Wale; they have been disrespected by Nigerians who organised the Cardi B event in Ghana… and as girl’s perfect, you couldn’t speak, but you’re quick to speak your mind on politics and other social issues”.
“…After telling you to come and address these issues you give me an ultimatum that I should come and remove my mouth; how dare you, how dare you dare me, how dare you dare me, can you dare me, can you dare me; this should be your last warning. I’ve been advised so don’t dare me,” angry Abeiku Santana burst out in the studio.
