Ghanaian comedian Funny Face, who is known in real life as Benson Nana Yaw Oduro Boateng, is being sued by a US-based lady Mary Ama Boansi for allegedly failing to pay back a $53,105.53 loan he took from her.
In a writ sighted by YEN.com.gh, Funny Face and Madam Boansi became friends after they met in June 2016.
The two were said to have fallen in love with a marriage proposal made by Funny Face to Madam Boansi.
Funny Face then sought financial assistance from Boansi.
"Plaintiff avers that as their love affair grew stronger, the Defendant proposed to marry her; a proposal she gladly accepted. Plaintiff avers that due to the Defendant’s proposal and promise to marry her, she took more than usual interest in affairs of the Defendant. That the Defendant was always requesting for financial assistance from her and she went beyond what is expected of an unmarried acquaintance to meet the unusual financial needs of the Defendant," the writ read.
Funny Face, on the other hand, refused to pay back the money when the relationship ended.
"Plaintiff avers that she has made all attempts to recover all funds given to the Defendant without success," the writ states.
Boansi is, therefore, asking the court to direct Funny Face to pay her $53,105.53 or its Ghana cedi equivalent and an interest on the said amount.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a very close friend of Castro, Funny Face, had declared that the musician is not dead.
According to Funny Face, Castro is “hiding at his base” and is sure to return by the close of this year. He was speaking in an interview contained in a video seen by YEN.com.gh.
