Inna Mariam Patty and her Exclusive Events Ghana Limited (EEGL) have dragged Miss Ghana 2010 Winner Stephanie Karikari and other contestants of the pageant to Court for defamation.
In a lawsuit filled at the Accra High Court, Inna Patty seeks to clear her name of allegations by the ex-queens that she has turned the Miss Ghana pageant into an “escort agency”.
Several contestants and former winners of the beauty pageant has over the period accused Inna Patty and her company of numerous allegations, alleging that, the pageant is nothing but a front for exploiting young ladies who are put into awkward positions with rich and powerful men to raise money for Patty.
Giuseppina Nana Akua Baafi (Miss Ghana 2013) disclosed recently that, Patty kept hammering her during her time about the nose and even said she would find out the cost of rhinoplasty because she said getting a more pointy nose would make her deemed more ‘beautiful’ and attract more attention to herself and the Pageant as a whole.
Inna Patty has continually denied these several allegations and instead is alleging a wide conspiracy to denigrate her pageant.
Speaking to the media after the court filing, Inna Patty said, she has decided to seek legal redress in court to clear her name and the bad image the queens have created about the very Miss Ghana brand over the years.
Inna Patty also dares the beauty queens to provide evidence that organizers of the Pageant used them for sexual gains in order to get sponsorship for the event.
The queens in the suit are Stephanie Karikari (Miss Ghana 2010), Antoinette Delali Kemavor Miss (Ghana 2015) and Giuseppina Nana Akua Baafi )Miss Ghana 2013), and Margaret Kuma-Minta (Miss Ghana 2013 first runner-up).
