- The new video is believed to be linked to the latest investigation of the journalist dubbed ‘Number 12’
YEN.com.gh has sighted a video in which award-winning investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, was being transformed by a makeup artist to change him from a black man into a white man during his investigation dubbed ‘Number 12’.
The video which has started making rounds on social media, saw the journalist being painted with some chemicals to change his skin color from black to white.
Anas Aremeyaw Anas and a man believed to be a makeup artist, were seen in a washroom as he disguised the skin color of the investigative journalist to get him to pass as a foreigner.
It is reported that Anas, in collaboration with some undercover foreigner reporters, staged a business meeting in which they captured the former Ghana Football Association (GFA) boss, Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi on tape allegedly taking a bribe.
According to reports, the undercover work was staged in Dubai after Tiger PI reportedly paid the flight cost of the former GFA boss to speak with a supposed Sheikh on his intention to sponsor the Ghana Premier League.

Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi, was on May 22, ordered to report himself to the Criminal Investigations Department in Accra to assist in investigations of alleged acts of misconduct brought against him.
Preliminary reports indicated that the FA boss defrauded some foreign investors later found out to be undercover investigators, using the names of the President and Vice President of Ghana.
Anas’ investigative documentary, ‘Number 12’, which was premiered on June 6 in Accra, exposed deep-seated corruption in the football circle and has had some rippling effects so far.
Mr. Nyantakyi was consequently given a 90-day ban by FIFA forcing him to resign from his long-serving position as the head of the Ghana Football Association.
He has also resigned from CAF as its second vice president.
In responding to the video, CAF has cracked the whip by banning some 11 referees with one referee among the lot receiving a life ban and the others receiveing bans ranging between 2 and 10 years.
Ghana’s Football Association has also been dissolved by the government; an action many fear can result in the world football governing body, FIFA, banning Ghana from participating in its activities.
