Ace Ghanaian actress and film Producer, Juliet Ibrahim has revealed that powerful interests prevented her from hosting the Aiteo CAF Awards which was successfully held on January 4, 2018 in Accra Ghana.
“I’ll speak from a personal experience; apparently, the organisers came down to Accra and asked a few of the Ghanaians they know for my contact because they wanted me to host alongside Didier Drogba. But, when they were asked, they replied with “oh we don’t know her number, ”she said on social media.
She indicated that the organisers who pressed further but could not get to her had to choose another person to host the show although they wanted her to do so because of her past glories with CAF ceremonies.
“This response allowed the organisers to fly in a South African host to co-host with Didier. Only for me to bump into one of the organisers on 3rd January and he narrated all that went down to me. It was now too late to put me on the bill to co-host. Life goes on…”
A number of controversies have trailed the highly successful event which saw performances from top Nigerian artists. Including Tiwa Savage, Wizkid and Olamide. Ghanaian entertainers have expressed their dissatisfaction with the organisers, who they say deprived them of attending and performing at the high profile event.
