Popular Ghanaian twin photographers, Twins Dnt Beg, have been called out over claims that they were fired as President Akufo-Addo’s professional photographers.
The twins said they were employed at the presidency in 2016 when Akufo-Addo won power to become president.
However, just a year later in 2017, they were fired over a photo that got the public ridiculing the president.
In sharp contrast, a videographer at the presidency, Francis Clottey, has rubbished the claims and said the twins have never been official photographers at the presidency.
Clottey mentioned the name of another photographer, Kojo Annan Kyeremeh, who has been working as the president’s official photographer for over 15 years.
He described the claims by the twins as false and deceptive to mislead Ghanaians, while warning them to desist from making further claims in interviews.
The videographer explained that Kojo only extended an invitation to Twins Dnt Beg to be his assistant after the 2016 elections, however, they went to do their own thing and lost that opportunity.
Clottey added that the twins must be bold in telling Ghanaians what they did to lose the opportunity given to them and stop spreading lies about the presidency.
The twins had earlier told Giovani Caleb in a conversation reported earlier by YEN.com.gh that they were relieved of their post after a leaked photo of the president went viral and caused ridicule.
Describing the exact photo that got them into their trouble, the duo said "the offending pic was His Excellency Nana Akufo-Addo in scrubs on a visit to the Ridge Hospital to see disaster victims".
After the 'harm' was caused, the two were not fired directly from their post but rather in a subtle way.
"We were told that "you will be called when we need you" and till now that call is yet to come," they revealed.
