Michael Ayitey Okine popularly known as Ayitey Powers is advocating for spiritual cleansing for fellow boxer, Bukom Banku following his recent dramatic physical change.
He believes that Banku could be under a spell and it is only through spiritual deliverance from a true Man of God he can be cured of his current predicament of skin bleaching and putting on fake eye lashes.
“I know what will happen to this guy (Bukom Banku), this guy needs deliverance and if he refuses to be delivered he will regret what will happen to him,” Ayitey said.
Ayitey Powers who is speaking publicly about the issue for the first time, said he has on several occasions advised Banku to stop bleaching but has been unsuccessful in changing the mind of the now light skinned boxer.
Bukom Banku claims his decision to change the colour of his skin was based on advice he received from one of his wives as well as his political ambition to be the next ambassador to Germany.
He was quoted on one of his interviews as saying: “I am bleaching my skin because when John Mahama wins 2016 elections, he will make me Ghana ambassador to Germany. I am bleach myself for German people to know that German people and Bukom Banku are one,” he said.
“Bleaching can’t affect my skin because I have a very good skin. Again rashes can’t affect me because I am using cleaning Claire and I am taking medicine as well. So if you see me now, you will observe that I am from Germany. I want Ghanaians to know that I am a German now.”
