In November 2022, several reports suggested that TikToker Asantewaa was duped by a popular social media influencer called Eyram of GH₵300,000. According to the stories, the TikToker intended to finish building her own home and move there before the year was through. Eyram informed Asantewaa that her cousin's husband was a builder and could finish the house for her in a timely manner.
Asantewaa trusted her friend and transferred GH₵300,000 to the alleged cousin's spouse for building supplies and other items. Due to Asantewaa's hectic schedule as a practising nurse and influential person, she trusted her friend to ensure that her cousin's husband finished the house.
It has been said that Asantewaa arrived at the building site after a period to find shock since nothing had been done to the property despite having given them GH₵300,000.
