Ghana’s foremost blogger, Ameyaw Debrah, has spoken on the issue of public figures making donations and making a show of it on social media.
The most chastised celebrity is Kumawood actress Tracey Boakye, who puts every donation, whether big or small, on social media.
For instance, when she attended the One Week Celebration of her friend Afia Schwar’s father, Tracey Boakye drew attention to herself by spraying dollar notes on Afia Schwar.
Now, business mogul and CEO of Despite Media, Osei Kwame Despite, has also been criticised for gifting his sisters fully furnished 5-bedroom houses each on his 60th birthday.

The troll came from failed politician Diamond Appiah who called Despite a hypocrite for giving things to his family and publishing it in the news.
However, Ameyaw Debrah has rubbished this and said there is nothing wrong if someone makes a donation and decides to publish it in the news.
He explained that the most important thing is that there is a donation and nothing else.
Ameyaw said this in an exclusive interview with YEN.com.gh on the issue.
Diamond Appiah trolls Osei Kwame Despite
Meanwhile, self-proclaiming rich woman and failed politician, Diamond Appiah, took a swipe at Ghanaian business mogul, Osei Kwame Despite, for giving out fully furnished 5-bedroom houses to his two sisters as part of his 60th birthday celebration.
Despite made headlines on his birthday, February 2, 2022, following the donation that went viral.
Diamond Appiah, however, believes giving things to family, friends and even random people should be done privately and not publicly for clout as Despite has done.
Interestingly, her own friend Tracey Boakye has also been criticised for a similar act.
