Former Minister of Youth and Sports, Elvis Afriyie-Ankrah has described as “stupid” the rumours that, he had sexual intercourse with actress cum Ghanaian ambassador to Brazil 2014 World Cup, Jackie Appiah in Brazil.
Hon. Afriyie-Ankrah speaking to Paul Adom Otchere on Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana, said he did not set his eyes on Jackie and singer Becca whiles in Brazil even though he airlifted them to Brazil to help sell the country in Brazil.
“I have heard all kinds of stories and it’s incredible. The only time I went to the ambassadors’ hotel, I went with two of my colleagues and it was the old footballers who were there [at the hotel]. The female ambassadors and John Dumelo had gone to town.
“…For the entire period we have been in Brazil till now, I have not set my eyes on these female ambassadors [Jackie and Becca]…not even ones. I did not see them, not even ones.”
“I was with my wife and two kids in Brazil. So how could I disrespect her? Assuming she [wife] was not with me and hearing all these stories…though she believes in me but she is human. I did not set eyes on them [Jackie and Becca]”. Not from a distance…I don’t have their numbers, both local and Brazil. I have never spoken to them before. Why would someone manufacture a story like that to the extent that they claim they have a tape? This is beyond foolishness”.
He also shut down the rumour that Becca spent a night with Black Stars’ midfielder, Agyemang Badu in his hotel room.
“The ambassadors never came near the team. FIFA security did not allow anyone without accreditation to get closer near the player, not even in their hotel. Even me, I struggled in some point in time to get closer to the team. So how could Becca spend the night with Agyemang Badu in his hotel room while she doesn’t have an accreditation?”
What do you think about what is going on?
