Tracy Sarkcess, the newly-wedded wife of award-winning rapper, Sarkodie, has come under siege on social media over comments she made regarding the ongoing spat between the Bank of Ghana (BoG) and Menzgold.
The BoG had faulted Menzgold, a gold trading company belonging to the owner of Zylofon Media owner, Nana Appiah Mensah, for engaging in banking activities which include deposit-taking.
This was contained in a notice issued and signed by the secretary of the Central bank, Mrs Caroline Otoo.
"Despite the several cautions to Menzgold Ghana “to desist from solicitation, receipt of money and the payment of dividends to its clients, the company persists in its deposit-taking activity,” parts of the notice read.
Tracy Sarkcess, while commenting on the notice which had been posted on Instagram by Nana Aba Anamoah, told the BoG to leave Menzgold alone and rather focus on banks that were squandering people's monies.
Going on to 'educate' the BoG, she explained there is a difference between those squandering money and those helping others to make money.
She wrote: “Menzgold doesn’t take deposit. They buy gold with the money you give them and work with that gold to give you a return on your investment. Which the last time i checked was around 10%. BOG should rather concentrate on the banks that are misappropriating people’s money rather than the ones actually making money for its people.”
But her comments seems to have landed her in trouble as many Ghanaians have found them inappropriate.
For many of them, Tracy was not competent enough in the field she was delving into and must therefore be in her lane and leave the experts to do their work.
In what could be described as the biggest backlash of her life, Tracy Sarkcess has been subjected to tons of attacks by social media users.
Vi Vy threw a serious jab at Tracy:
Abass thought Tracy did not know what she was talking about:
Nana Amoah also described Tracy as ignorant:
Nana Aba thought Tracy should emulate celebrity wives like Stonebwoy's wife, Loiusa, and John Dumelo's wife, Gifty, and be quiet about certain things:
Takyi disputed Tracy's claim:
Maame thought Tracy was behaving like Shatta:
But it was not all attack as Tracy had a good number of people defending her. For every attack on Tracy, there was an equal response.
Henry responded to Takyi:
Abena also had word for Maame:
