News One an entertainment website based in Ghana for Ghanaian Celebrities, has been offered a cash offer of $72,000 to make public the sizzling sex video involving three of Ghana’s top actresses and a Nigerian businessman in Accra.
The offer came from one O.A.D. Adewale who introduced himself as a Nigerian who owns a publishing house in Abuja. This is the second of such offers after a Ghanaian producer who begged for anonymity proposed to buy the said tape for a cash amount of $15,000.
The motive of the two potential buyers is yet to be established and the management of NEWS-ONE is jaw-jawing with a number of legal brains over the ethical implications of selling the said tape for money. Opinion has remained divided over the matter considering the fact that Mr. Adawale has given NEWS-ONE a 24-hour ultimatum for a response.
Though NEWS-ONE mentioned no names when it broke the story, the two men who approached it have mentioned the names of three Ghanaian female actresses and one Nigerian as the characters in the said video.Interestingly, the two of the ‘interested buyers’ have mentioned the same set of names.
Meanwhile, Ghanaian actress Jackie Appiah has expressed her disappointment at the publication by “News One” over such a sensitive story without any shred of proof or evidence, ostensibly to tarnish her image.
She made this passionate disclosure when questioned about the alleged sex video in an exclusive interview with Kwasi Aboagye on Peace FM’s “Entertainment Review”.
She said, “We have families and we have fans, so if you write something like this about us in one way or the other it affects us…I was really disappointed in the newspaper that published such a fabricated story. It’s really bad how some newspapers want to make money…It’s a shame. It’s very bad because there was no truth in what they published. There is no such thing as sex video, it’s all lies and just a plot to tarnish people’s image”.
