The event was held at the Kempinksi Hotel in Accra yesterday, (2nd August, 2018) .
The CEO of Exclusive Events (event organizers of the pageant), Inna Party during the launch responded to allegations made by former beauty queens that they were pimped to raise money for the organization.
She stated that none of the former beauty queens who have made those allegations against the Miss Ghana brand have been able to prove it.
The most recent allegation that popped up was from the 2017 winner, Margaret Dery who resigned after calling the pageantry a scam.
Dery tweeted that: “being a Miss Ghana queen has honestly been one of the worse experiences in my life,yeah,I know it looks good on the outside but it’s just one big sham on the inside. All that glitters is not gold. Ladies, you don’t need a crown on your head to succeed.”
In another statement from Exclusive Events, the beauty queens are dared to back sexual allegations with names, addresses of big men.
“We are daring the former winners, Margaret Dery (Miss Ghana 2017), Stephanie Karikari (Miss Ghana 2010), Giuseppina Nana Akua Baafi (Miss Ghana 2013) and Antoinette Delali Kemavor (Miss Ghana 2015) to mention the names and addresses of the Big Men that Inna Patty and Exclusive Events Ghana wanted the Beauty Queens to have sex with in return for financial returns and sponsorship deals,” a statement from Exclusive Events said.
