Energetic Ghanaian singer, Rebecca Acheampong, popularly known as Becca on Thursday told the Justice Dzamefe Commission that the World Cup Ambassadors did not have the opportunity to meet the Black Stars players in Brazil.
Becca, who was one of 14 people chosen by the Ministry of Sports as brand Icons for the Brazil 2014 World Cup project, was accused of having engaged in sex frolic with a Black Stars player in the South American country.
The chairman of the three-member body, Justice Dzamefe asked, “did you ever have the chance of meeting the Black stars?” of which Becca responded: “No… we did not have the opportunity to meet them, my Lord.”
The Ambassadors were approached by the ministry to rally support for the Black Stars, as well as help raise funds and brand Ghana for the project in June/July.
Their role in Brazil as stated in Becca’s ‘appointment letter’ includes:
- The promotion and marketing of Ghana’s participation for the World Cup.
Creating and enhancing corporate involvement in Ghana’s preparation and participation for the championship.
Make public appearances and represent the minister and for that matter the government at every event to promote the World Cup.
Serve as a key motivator and inspirer for the Black Stars and also rally all of Ghana behind the team.
Be a symbol of all that is Ghanaian and sell Ghana to the outside world. Grant interviews and appear on the media and other social networks to promote the Black stars and the country as a whole.
Justice Dzamefe, however, overruled a question posed by one of the commissioners requesting Miss Becca to use the opportunity to clear “any rumour” making the rounds about her conduct in Brazil.
The judge explained, he intervened because he did not want the commission to drift from the main reason they called the singer before the commission.
“Please to all sitting here, I have to apologise to Commissioner Kofi for overruling his question because we don’t want to stray into anything… no that’s not why we invited her so we don’t want to go into anything,” he said.
