According to him, GWR had spoken to Afua directly long before the news broke that her record attempt was unsuccessful. He expressed disappointment about her unableness to let her fans and the entire nation know of her verdict.

"It would have been best to come out and speak the truth because no brand would like to work with a dishonest person. She received her verdict long before news broke from the GWR page about her unsuccessful attempt. She could have done the noble thing by announcing it herself," he said.
