Inna Mariam Patty and her Exclusive Events Ghana Limited (EEGL) which holds the franchise to the Miss Ghana Beauty Pageant has started a defamation suit against some former beauty queens.
According to a report YEN.com.gh sighted in the NEWS-ONE newspaper, the suit filed in an Accra High Court was brought against Miss Ghana 2010 Stephanie Karikari and other contestants of the pageant.
The report indicated that Inna, winner of the pageant in 2004 and the CEO of EEGL, is seeking to clear her name of allegations by the ex-queens that she has turned the Miss Ghana pageant into an “escort agency”.
It will be recalled that sometime in December 2017, three former winners of the Miss Ghana pageant alleged Inna was using the pageant to pimp out the contestants
In an interview published on Ghanacelebrities.com at the time, the three Stephanie Karikari (Miss Ghana 2010), Antoinette Delali Kemavor (Miss Ghana 2015), and Giuseppina Nana Akua Baafi (Miss Ghana 2013) claimed they were sometimes pimped to raise money to support the pageant.
While Inna had denied the allegations, the allegations have not really gone and 2017 winner, Margaret Dery came with her own damning allegations in July 2018.
The court action, YEN.com.gh has gathered, is therefore to seek legal redress for the matter in order to clear her name and the bad image the beauty queens created for the Miss Ghana brand.
The others captured in the lawsuit in addition to the above-mentioned queens are Margaret Kuma-Minta (Miss Ghana 2013 first runner-up).
